Dallas Road Trip for Mimi's Birthday

The last weekend in May we made a road trip up to Dallas.  My dad, Barry & Michael had planned a fishing trip, so we planned a girls trip to Dallas to celebrate Mimi's upcoming birthday with her.  Since my mom had to work on Friday, Becky and I decided to make the trip with all the kids Thursday afternoon.  Crazy?  Maybe.  We packed my car to the brim and were on the road…




After sitting in traffic FOR.EVER. we finally made it to a Chick-Fil-A for a dinner and diaper change stop.


7 hours (yup, 7) and 4 sleeping kids later we made it to Dallas.


We spent Friday hanging out at Mimi's house and playing in the backyard.  Lisa, Brooke & Holly drove in from Arkansas to spend the weekend with us too which was great!






Saturday we hosted a lunch for Mimi's friends to come over and celebrate her birthday, she was more interested in showing off her great grandkids!


We spent the rest of the day shopping, hanging out with Brittney & Eric and walking on the "Balance Wall."  The balance wall, as Cora named it, is the border between Mimi's yard and her neighbors'.  When we were kids it was made of railroad ties, it has since been upgraded but still provided hours of entertainment, much like it did when we were little.


I am so glad we got to spend the weekend celebrating our wonderful grandmother!  And fortunately the drive home only took us 4 hours…as it should have…thanks to Ty taking a marathon nap, M.E. sitting in the back providing entertainment and lots and lots of snacks.  The fishermen had a great weekend too!
