Spring Break 2015

We 'stay-cationed' this Spring Break (since Jeff and I had just traveled!). The girls had a lot of fun hanging around town and going on daily adventures. Warning: This post is a lot of random photos I took throughout the Spring Break.

To start off-- The weather was a little crazy at the beginning of the week. This was the day the girls got out of school for Spring Break. A snowman sat outside of school, from the previous day's snowstorm.


It was cold enough for boots and fur. (This is how 'preschool' Maisy will forever be in my mind. Those boots!!)

Adventures at Trader's Joe's-- the clerk let the girls check out. They loved it.

Shopping at Bath & Bodyworks in Town Square. 

Having fun in the rain! Because these girls always have fun. 

By Wednesday, we a got some sun. So we met Grammy at the park. We played 'baseball' and ran in the grass. It felt good to be in the sun!

That night, Jeff surprised us with a dinner at Joe T's! We love our tex-mex. 

Thursday, we met our cousins and Mimi in Fort Worth for "Spring Break Art at the Kimball". This was an awesome program. 

The girls created 3-D beach houses for the museum village. 

Then they went on a docent led 'sketching tour' of the museum. They had 6 minutes to draw each of the four pieces of art on the tour. They took it very seriously.

Here are the results of the sketching. Maisy's on the left, Afton's on the right. It's neat to see both girl's interpretation of the same piece of art. 

I was impressed with the all volunteers and program. The girls had a blast. 

 On Friday, Afton went to a skills camp at her cheer gym. She loves to tumble.

That afternoon, I took the girls to see the new Cinderella. Loved it! 

Saturday, Maisy and I went to a tea room for a party (Afton was at cheer). Maisy loves to dress up. 

And we ended the week, with lunch at Grandpa's house with more cousins. It was a great week!

Snow Day 3.5.2015

We have seen some crazy weather this winter. Grapevine got around 4 inches of snow last night. We woke up to a winter wonderland.

We played until we got too cold and then went inside for marshmallows, 'warm cocoa' and movies. 

This nutty dog ran sprints through the snow the entire time we were outside. The snow was deeper than her legs, so it made for a good show. 

This was my kind of snow-- sunny and melts quickly. 

Later in the afternoon, we met the lady responsible for all this crazy weather. It was Elsa of course! 

Besides all of the snow she brought with her... she also does birthday parties and paints faces. 

Who knew?! Hopefully she will send warmer temps our way for Spring Break next week.

Mexico: Fun for the Parents

My Christmas gift from Jeff was a surprise trip to Cancun. After a little trouble with a passport (who knew you needed a passport for Mexico?!) we slid out past the snow and headed down south. We traded our sweaters and boots for swimsuits and flip flops. We stayed at the CasaMagna Resort in Cancun.

It was perfect.

We ate good food, drank yummy drinks and got massages. We worked out together and pretended we spoke Spanish. We celebrated our anniversary too. Can you believe we have been married 12 years?! 

We almost didn't want to come home.

 Except we really missed our girls. I think the Conner family could live by the sea. 

Adios Mexico.
