We woke up bright and early Thursday morning and headed for the airport with one destination in mind: Houston! My sister picked us at the airport, and this pretty face was waiting for us as well :)
Our first stop, as always, was for Tex-Mex. I hadn’t been to Gringo’s since high school, so I immediately inhaled my body weight in green sauce. It was also Chad’s first time to meet our sweet niece, and this picture warms my heart :)
We picked up the Monkey Child (otherwise known as Payton) and headed to mom’s house. After some fun, it was time for Lillybug to take a nap – so I volunteered to cuddle her :) I love that Payton’s getting a hug from my mom in the background!
And then it got dark – and I was STILL holding Lilly. And then thoughts of “I could totally do this” started creeping in my head and Chad definitely had the same thought. We’re on a five-steps-till-baby plan (1. find a place to live 2. buy a house 3. get a dog 4. go to Europe 5. have a baby), so that won’t happen any time soon, but when it does, I think it will look a lot like this:
On Saturday, we shopped. I got 3 dresses, two pair of pants, a pair of shoes and a pair of earrings. Chad got sunglasses and a trip to Hooters. He’s a great shopping buddy! On Sunday, we went to Brooke’s softball game (my 10 year old cousin who has a crush on Chad) and then to Payton’s soccer game. If you’ve never been to a 5 year old’s soccer game, I suggest going – it’s comedy GOLD!
Sadly, then our trip was over. However, I leave you with this – a picture of Lilly in the outfit that Uncle Chad and Aunt BB got her :)
