The Thursday before Easter I took both kids to Texas...why I didn't fly I will never know. I honestly didn't even think about it. But the road trip wasn't too bad.
My travel buddy...she is the best traveler. For real...she never asks to stop and she will watch movies or play on her kindle the whole way. She is so fun to travel with...guess she's making up for when she was a baby and we could never go anywhere bc she was so high maintenance! :) Ethan did pretty good too...as good as a 4 month old can do in a car that many hours.
We finally got to Stephanie's house around 8pm...it was a loooonnnggg day! But right when we got there, I got to meet these puppies...they were SO cute!!
Madeline brought her makeup with her and couldn't wait to put some on Huggy...she looked so pretty when Madeline was done!
We headed out the next day for San Angelo...I was dying to go to Magnolia Market so we made a pit stop in Waco...it was SO fun!
We also stopped at in and out burger for lunch...I have never been to one and it was cute. The kids loved it!
We made it to San Angelo around 6:30 that evening and the first stop we made was through our old hood. While I don't exactly miss this house, I do have some sweet, sweet memories there. Madeline got mad because we couldn't go inside. haha
We ate dinner at Zero One...they have the best chicken sandwich and sweet potato fries!! Ethan had his first blowout while Jaylei was feeding him. It was hilarious! I took pictures before I rescued her!
Then we met up with some friends for ice cream at Stango's. I love that place so much!!
Reunited and it feels so good! These two are so stinking cute together...although I'm not sure we'd survive them growing up in the same town. #wildgirls #bffs
Madeline spent the night with Lexi and had so much fun!
The next day we met up with my sweet friends from Community Medical Center...Sasha was my preceptor in nursing school and gave birth to TRIPLETs in October. She is the best momma and I was so glad I got to meet her sweet babies!
Morgan has come to see us in Florida and has been such a good friend to me even since we moved away!
Saturday night we went to Brianne's for dinner and to hang out. It was like I was home. I miss our friends SO much!!
Jaylei curled Madeline's hair for the occasion and she looked so sweet!
Ethan got to meet sweet Hadlee who is a week older than he is and she is SO stinking cute! They were so funny checking each other out. We never did get both of them to look at the same time.
They were so funny!
Sunday morning we went to church at our old church...it was so sweet to get to spend Easter Sunday there. They had an egg hunt after church.
My babies and me :)
I am learning that either one or both kids are either not looking or not smiling in basically every picture...
My sweet sweet Texas friends...
We ate a quick lunch at Rosa's and hit the road back to Steph's house. It was a quick trip but we packed in everything we wanted to do...we even hit up a birthday party, a target trip for Easter goodies, and a trip to HEB for Julios and guacamole. It was the best!
You know I had to hit up Stripes before we left...
We had to stop and take a few pictures in the blue bonnets on the way home...the pictures just don't do them justice. They are gorgeous and Madeline absolutely loved it!
We finally made to Stephanie's around 9pm and I hurried and packed my car and tried to get a little sleep. We got up early the next day and headed home. I was so sad to leave but you know, there's no place like home, especially with a baby! :) It was the BEST trip!!!
