Last weekend Mike, the girls and I headed out on a little family vacation. We headed to Grapevine, TX and had a great time. We left Saturday morning and came home on Tuesday. It was about the perfect amount of time to be gone, although the girls cried when we got home because they wanted to sleep at the hotel again.
Here are the girls loaded up and ready to go. We were about 10 minutes into the drive when Hadley started asking, "Are we in Texas yet?". Luckily Mary Poppins got started and she didn't ask that question too many more times.
Most of Saturday was spent traveling and getting checked in. Our hotel was booked full the night before so we didn't get into our room until about 6pm. Luckily my sweet talking got us a credit on our bill :) To kill time that afternoon we thought we would go to the Legoland Discovery Center. Hadley was very excited when we told her where we were going. She soon would be disappointed due to the 2.5 hour wait to get in. We bought our tickets for Monday and assured her we would be back. She kept saying the rest of the evening, "I am disappointed mom." To help with the disappointment we let them ride a few rides at the mall before we headed back to see if our room was ready. Hadley always tells us that she wants a car without a top and I think she found it.
We stayed at the Gaylord Texan Hotel. This is the hotel Mike and I stayed at 3 years ago when we left Hadley overnight for the first time. They just opened a new resort pool area this summer. It was perfect for the girls. They had a lazy river or crazy river as the girls called it. A zero entry pool with lots of sprays to play in. They also had a zip-line and slide that Mike and I could do. We spent all day on Sunday at this pool with a break in the middle of the day for rest time. While we were there they girls and I got spray on tattoos and the girls got braids and beads put in their hair. It was a great day and both girls fell asleep on the way to dinner that night. Here are some pictures of swimming.
