Trip to the big D

Before school gets started, my mom and I decided to take the kids to Dallas to meet up with our Lubbock buddies and visit family in the Dallas area. We were having some Shannon and Hayden Russell withdrawals so we planned a playdate at the Hawaiian Falls Waterpark in The Colony, near Dallas. And it's always great to see my sister in law and my niece (my brother was out of town). They were sweet enough to let us stay with them.

Landon was so excited to see his buddy, Hayden, but you would never know it because of the meltdown he had outside the waterpark. He was up late the night before with his cousin, Kenzie, that he was in such a sour mood the next morning. But that disappeared once we got inside. We rented a cabana and it was soooo worth it because it was a lot more crowded than we anticipated. Kennedy was able to take a nap with KK, while me, Shannon, the boys, and Kenzie went to play. Needless to say, it was a fun filled day and EVERYONE was exhausted when we finally left around 4.

The next day, we were able to go to Fort Worth to visit with cousin Destin and her baby boy, Nash. It was a quick visit, but so worth it! Baby Nash is getting so big! I wish we could see them more often...such great people!!

That night, I was able to sneak away with some friends to go to the first Cowboy football game in their new stadium. It was absolutely amazing!!!! We were able to watch the game from one of the suites and words just can't describe how beautiful that billion dollar facility is! I only wished that Lance was there to enjoy it with me. I forgot my camera (I know, can you believe it?) so I don't have any pics from that. But I do have some from the rest of the trip!!

Ok, these next two pics are from the Meet the Bulldog day in Ruston before we left for Dallas. Landon got mad because he thought we were going to a football game and was upset to leave.

And these last two photos are of my sweet angel, Kennedy, who turned 11 MONTHS!!!!!
