The morning of our getaway I printed off a photo scavenge hunt for the kids (took 5 minutes), and I gave it to them at breakfast. PUMPED!
Packed and out the door in an hour. Quick stop at the bank and Ally noticed the gas station in the background. Check!
After a slight detour (major construction), and one speeding ticket---grrrrrrrr, we made it to Grapevine!
First stop, the Rainforest Cafe
animal of your choice---check
and awkward photo taken by the waiter--check :)
Elephant check it off the list (this was the most hilarious conversation because they couldn't IMAGINE where we were gonna see an elephant)
Biggest dessert ever. It was SO good!
Ally's wish came true because they have a build-a-bear workshop right there in the restaurant. I love this girl to pieces!
MOM!!! Another Elephant :))
Then it was off to our hotel. The red LEGO was immediately spotted by Ryan
My favorite picture of the trip!
swimming--check. This picture makes it look like the pool was empty which was NOT the case. It was super crowded.
And then another surprise, DADDY!! Mark couldnt stand it and surprised us. We were all very happy to see him! Next was the Ranger game....Whoo-Hoo
we had great seats and our adventure continued
truck (really a car but we had to take this picture for Brady since his favorite word is carrrrrrrr)
List complete!!! They did a great job on it
Next morning was Tennis
Mommy and Ally opted to sit in the shade
it was h-o-t but Ryan and Mark had a blast
We checked out of the hotel and headed to Legoland Discovery Center.
Overall the 48 hours was really fun. I was very tired when we got home but I know that my kids made some very fun memories and they each earned $15. I missed Brady like crazy and was SO ready to see that little guy. Thanks Honey and GP for watching our sweet boy!
