Babies & Some Junk Food

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

We had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend visiting friends & family in Dallas!

First, we needed our staple road trip food for the drive there:

This tradition started years ago. It's the only time we eat Corn Nuts, but we get them for every car trip (and always have gum handy to combat the after-effects).

We got to go help pick Kendall up from her school on Friday, which was fun (blazes, was it hot!). This pic is after she and I painted fingernails and I braided her hair (isn't she such a cutie?!):

Girl time!

I tried to get a pic of little sister Kailyn, but she was telling me (in this photo) that she couldn't smile because her teeth hurt:


From there, we went to see my grandma, and her new kitty, Skeeter:

He is a VERY sweet kitty and loves his new home (and I couldn't get him to look at the camera)!

After a trip to Ikea (hopefully will be tackling some projects soon!), we had a lovely dinner with Grandma, my aunt and two of my uncles. {Also that night, we caught (no pun intended) Hillbilly Handfishin on Animal Planet. Totally weird...I still don't really get it.}

Our last stop was to see our dear dear friends Erin & Jonathan and meet their darling little cutie pie Baby Felicity!

Oh, she is just as irresistible as she looks in this photo!

On the way home, I got a hankering for a Blizzard from Dairy Queen. This was somewhere less than 100 miles into the 500 mile drive. About 50 miles away from Memphis, we finally found one in Forrest City, Arkansas.

Behold, the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Blizzard!

{Please don't think I've completely abandoned my principles from this post and this post, but it WAS a road trip after all! And I nowhere near finished the whole thing.}

Glad to be home, even though it's suddenly a billion degrees in Memphis too. Baby Girl must be glad too, because she's been so active in there ever since we got home!

Thanks to our friends and family for the wonderful hospitality this weekend.
