Our Trip

I am taking a 15 minute break from unpacking, washing and all the other post trip fun to blog.

Our good friends Adria and Eric went with us with their two kids Noah and Brinn. We left out at 4am to head to Texas. We all road in the van but it was very comfortable.

I was trying to post pics in this post but after using half of my break fighting with the computer I am giving up and adding them to flickr still ended up with a few in this post but most are in flickr.

By 10:00 am on Friday we we were in Texas at the first outlet mall stop of the trip. Lunch at a very good Mexican resteraunt. Here are the kids in the waiting area.

We then hit Canton Texas for our first day of shopping. I handled it better than I thought I would but I will admit that by evening my incision was stinging and I swear I thought my stomach was going to just rip open. But hey I made it and didn't slow anyone down. Found a few bargains. I will have to take pics of later got a neat Miss Priss sign for Brittney's door and a sign for Braden's door with airplanes on it. All of us basically fell asleep when our head hit the pillow Friday night. The kids took no naps and had been up since 3:30. I have to brag on all four of them they did really well no major meltdowns or fits.

Started out Saturday morning heading back to Canton. My family told Adria and Eric we would be leaving out at 8:30 and I didn't think to correct them and tell them that means 7:30 so it was a little rushed but we got there here are some pics of Britt and Braden and one of all 4 kids piled in the back of the van.

We headed to Grapevine Texas Saturday afternoon. Cleaned up at the hotel and went to Joe's Crab Shack our friends had never been there. This is the point in the post where my computer starting going crazy I have pics of the kids eating their build your own sundae's. Braden must not have been messy because I didn't end up with a pic of him.

The kids loved going to the bass pro shop. I got some cool pics of that too but as I have already griped something is possessing the computer right now and will not cooperate. I know the dryer is about to buzz any minute ending my break.

All in all the shopping was fun, we also met up with some other friends of ours and the kids loved Rainforest Cafe. We got home around midnight. The pics of the kids at that time show them much more wore out than the first pic of them in the back seat.

I am just dreading because I am like ugh this much post trip clean up from the weekend and in about 7 weeks we have a 2 week trip to disney.

I know what you mean about cleaning up after a trip. That's what I dread the most. But how fun it must have been traveling with a family! I can't wait to do something like that.

And did you say Disney?! I'm so jealous!!! :)
