Hello! I’m popping in today to give a quick recap of where I’ve been over the past week. Our little family along with my parents road tripped down to Dallas, Texas to visit my sister, her husband, and our two adorable nieces! I had the BEST time playing with my favorite little girls, exploring the Dallas area, and catching up on some much needed sister time with Rachel.
Please excuse the sheer quantity of photos – it was too hard to choose with so many cute babies! :)
The babies (born only 18 hours apart) loved having a playmate just their size. They played and gave each other hugs and kisses all week which resulted in quite a few scratches and bruises on both of them ;)
And Eleanor was completely enamored by Mahala – I think she would have liked to bring her home with us!
Jeff got lots of practice playing princesses and my little pony – what a good uncle!
The Dallas Arboretum was seriously AMAZING! I want one built in Omaha! The children’s area was unbelievable – the babies had a great time exploring (and eating their fair share of sand)!
Two peas in a pod!
The celery slide was a big hit!
We somehow managed to get E to sit still long enough for a family photo
Enjoying some of the beautiful flowers
Rachel organized a family picnic on our last night – pizza and s’mores!
Mahala had never made a s’more before – she wasn’t sure she liked how sticky it was! I won’t even mention how many I ate ;)
E wasn’t too interested in the picnic, so everybody got the chance to chase her around… soooooo close to walking independently!
Then it was time to pack up, and hit the road back to Omaha!
Have you ever visited Texas? What did you think?
What’s your favorite vacation destination? We’re pretty happy visiting our family, but we also want to make it to Colorado sometime in the next year!
