Winter break trip with the "bigs"

We took a quick little getaway trip with David F. and Nora before school started back. We went to Dallas and really packed in the fun for only being gone one night. Isaac stayed home with Mammers and although we missed him a lot, it was best for everyone. Especially since he developed a pretty nasty cold and started running a fever.

We woke the kids up bright and early and  surprised them that we were heading out on a trip! They were so excited! We met our friends, Mitch and Aleicia and their little boy for lunch on Saturday. Went to the Aquarium and then to the Gaylord Texan to go see the ICE exhibit. It was a Frosty the Snowman theme and incredible. The kids loved it. They have you their coats to wesr because it was only 3 degrees inside. The whole thing was made exclusively out of ice and by the end, we were freezing and ready for hot chocolate! 
Then we headed across the street to the Great Wolf Lodge for some indoor water park fun. It was a blast and Franklin and I loved the big slides and going down them with DF! 

Then we stopped by to see Rachael's new baby, had lunch with Franklin's aunt, Charlene and Bob and their granddaughter, Lucy Kate. It was fun for DF and Nora to get to play with her. Franklin did a great job driving and even got us home before dinner. It was really nice to get some play time with DF and nora and give them some major individual attention. We all came home refreshed and ready for school to start tomorrow.

Fun ice slides! 

They had a wolf den in the room that they loved with their own tv and bunk beds.

In the lobby for story time before bed and it snowed inside on us! 

Cheese face nora with Rachael and baby Jack. I loved getting his new baby snuggles. 
Great car trip home with 2 sleeping kids that played their hearts out.
