The Big D!!

It's been almost 2yrs since our last trip to Dallas, so we decided it was definitely time to visit and bring our girls along! Emma and Ava were awesome travelers and excited for a "road trip". Emma kept saying "are we in Texas yet mom?", " i don't see Texas?"....too cute. We started our visit in Sherman with our friends Josh, Krisha and adorable Shepherd Grace! The girls enjoyed playing in their beautiful backyard and the mom's attempted a shopping trip with 3 girls......which ended quickly. My how times have changed when we used to shop all day long without a care in the world! Any visit to Sherman, TX is not complete without a trip to City Limits, where the best and might I add potent "margarita, aka dennyrita" can be found. The kids had fun playing in the dirt by the outdoor tables. Perfect fun for 1 and 2 yr old girls. Thanks Josh and Krisha for the fun times.

We then traveled to Dallas and met up with mom's friends from her first job as a nurse at Baylor Medical Center. We enjoyed an outdoor barn playground at Central Market while mom was able to catch up with Lorrie and Tempy. It was so fun to visit since we have not seen each other for years!

After Central Market, we headed to the airport to pick up dad and then off to Uptown to see Josh
and LE. We had fun driving by and checking out the duplex mom and dad lived in when they were first married. Then off to Taco Diner for dinner and happy hour drinks. It was an evening full of awesome mexican food, michelada's, margaritas, and great friends! Thanks to everyone for coming out and helping entertain the girls!!

Josh and LE were wonderful hosts and made delicious breakfast tacos the next morning. We then headed out to visit Alisa and Ben and check out their new house. It is awesome and Ben has done an amazing job building a new deck. He put it to good use that evening as they hosted a BBQ for everyone. Thanks for a fabulous evening with the best friends ever and awesome food!

The next day was full of more fun as we visited the Johnson family and were able to meet baby Javier for the first time. The girls enjoyed playing with his toys and giving him many kisses. It was fun to visit with Melissa and Fred and catch up on old times. We were then off for a stay with the Watson's. Jill and Ray just built a beautiful new home and it was so awesome to see. Jordan and Jake had so many fun toys to play with, but I think the most fun was had outside with their roller coaster ride! We enjoyed a fun afternoon the next day at an indoor playground called Bonkers. Emma can't stop talking about it!! Thanks Jill and Ray for a wonderful visit!!

The girls were awesome travelers on our 13 hr road trip home to St Louis! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect trip back to the Big D!! Thanks again to all our amazing friends for making our trip so special!! WE MISS YOU!!
