Family Getaway

Happy Birthday to America! After church on Sunday we headed north on I35. After lunch in Waco and a quick kolache detour in West we were on our way. Our first stop was to visit the Hill family in Arlington. Brandon and Jarrod traveled together for a year as state FFA officers in 1998-99. Jarrod also attened TAMU with Brandon & Gara. It's hard to believe that it had been over a year since our last visit. Their son Travis is 8 weeks older than Owen and they had a fun time playing together. Check out these patriotic pals:

Next we checked into our hotel near the DFW airport. Since the night was still young we decided to hunt down the nearest Baskin favorite!! Before bedtime we watched fireworks from the top floor of our hotel. Emma enjoyed this display because we couldn't hear them! Here are some photos I took of the kids that evening. Owen was pleased to meet a new friend in the mirror:

On Monday we went shopping and Emma enjoyed her first ride on a carousel. Because I have weak stomach and equilibrium issues, I stayed behind the camera while Jarrod rode with her. She loved it :)

The Grapevine Mills mall is HUGE! We also made a quick stop at the Hillsboro outlets. Both kids got a couple of Fall outifts and Emma finally got some new Nikes. We were fortunate enough to be crossing I35 paths with my good friend Mandy! We visited for a few minutes at Starbucks and it was nice to finally meet her boyfriend, Arron!
