Each year around Spring Break Neal has to travel to New York for market. This year was no different and he had to leave mid week during the week of Spring Break. My mom's Spring Break was the week before ours so we decided to start Spring Break early and took the girls out of school the Thursday and Friday prior. This was we got some time with Neal and my mom.
We headed down to Houston with an overnight stop in Dallas. Can you see the personality oozing out of these 2 crazy girls?
Of course no road trip to Houston isn't complete without a stop at Bucee's!
This Houston trip was one of my favorites. The activities we did were just a lot of fun (Imax movie premier of Beauty and the Beast, 1st American Girl store trip and 1st American Girl doll purchase, birthday celebrations with Grizzy even though it wasn't really either of their birthday yet, lots of good time with family, the zoo and a trip to Aunt Mau's house that is always a highlight).
On our way home we decided to spend a few days in Dallas as just a family of 4. We went to the Aquarium, the Science center and Top Golf. This was really fun time for us. We often drive through and stay the night in Dallas but never really explore.
This is the mark of a fun trip!
When we got back home it was time for Neal to head to New York. The girls and I had some really sweet time together, just the 3 of us. We spend hours at lake Atalanta one day playing in the water, riding multiple miles around the trail while I ran and playing on the playground.
We experimented with tie dye for the first time and loved our results. Notice my socks.
We did a lot of lounging around.
And we took Mr. Pickles on an adventure one day. They felt bad for Barkley so we walked her around the block before taking Mr. Pickles to Crystal Bridges trail so that she felt included too.
None of it was too elaborate but it will be a Spring Break that we all remember as a really good time.
