Along with a Spring Break (that occurs in April), the girls get a Fall Break and Winter Break from school. This past week was their Winter Break and the whole family banded together to have a fun time with the girls!
First things first…they both needed hair trims. I took Celine after school on Thursday and Louise on Saturday. Their hair definitely looks better – and Louise’s has far less tangles now!
Grammy and Grumps arrived in Dallas on Saturday evening and came over Sunday morning for some fun. They babysat the girls on Monday and Tuesday while Mike and I went to work. Monday was the Perot museum…I think they had a good time!
Tuesday they traveled out to Grapevine Mills mall and hit up Build-a-Bear, the Rainforest Cafe, and the carousel. I think Celine was a little overwhelmed at the Rainforest Cafe and came home with a story about how the gorillas were scary. But Louise loved it!
Wednesday was Grandmas turn to hang out with the girls. She stayed at our house for the day.
The girls spent the night at their house on Thursday night which was great for Mike and me, and then my parents dropped them off around noon on Friday.
Saturday was shaping up to be a beautiful day so we decided to hit up the Arboretum. When we got there we discovered the Children’s Garden doesn’t open for another week, but we still had fun walking around, eating our lunch, and dancing to music.
I was taking Celine to the restroom when I heard an older couple say, “looks like we’ve got a dancer!” I turned around and saw Louise by herself in the middle of the stage, dancing away. Nobody seemed to mind!
That afternoon, Louise helped Mike make cookies. We bought an adjustable table for our Super Bowl party and it’s come in handy for things like this! Looking at this picture, I wonder why Louise didn’t wear her apron…
By Sunday the girls were pretty restless, and an attempted trip to the park ended in a busted lip and some tears. Mike took the girls to school this morning and said they seemed pretty ready to be back in school. Us too!
It was a fun break and as always, I’m so happy the girls have grandparents they can spend time with.
