Let’s Pretend

While Daddy was at beach camp Landree, Hudson, and I loaded up (literally) and headed to Texas.  This was the first time for us to drive with the kids.  Mia flew in to drive with us.  I would never have attempted the trip alone!  But, both kids did great!  Neither of them cried for the entire two days.  I was shocked and oh so pleased!  We decided to stop half way so we took our time at stops, had long lunches, milkshakes, and even an hour shopping one afternoon.  Our hotel made the trip that much better too-we were able to find a Holid*y Inn that had only been open 6 weeks (so I wasn’t over the top paranoid about germs like I normally am) with a port a crib (that Hudson wouldn’t sleep in), a pool (a prerequisite for Landree), and a Chick-f*I-a down the road.  I would definitely drive again. 

We have been doing so many fun things that I will share soon, but some of the most fun pictures I’ve taken in a while came from our afternoon tea party.  We went to stay with one of my life long best friends, Shauna, at her beautiful new home for three days.  Megan and Hayden joined us the 2nd day for lots of fun, napping (the boys-not us), talking, shopping, eating, and swimming.  Before they arrived, Mia, Shauna, Landree, Hudson and I had tea in downtown Grapevine at “Let’s Pretend Tea Parties.”  They have tons of dress up clothes, wings, jewelry, sunglasses, hats, wands, crowns, and more!  And we had such a good time trying all of it on.

After we Landree chose what she wanted us to wear we had our tea and cupcakes.  Landree loved the sugar cubes, as you can imagine, and put two in her tiny little tea cup.  She was very generous trying to share with us too.

We had such a fun afternoon that I decided to sign Landree up for a Princess camp they were having on Thursday morning.  Pictures of that to come!

Oh my goodness. I know this girl was in heaven with all the dress up and then to have tea on top of that. She could have died right there. :)

Glad you guys are having fun. We do miss you though and can't wait for you to be home.
