Dallas Weekend

Watching the ice skaters at the Galleria...she loved watching all of the kids

At the Rangers game
M in her cap from Daddy! Yes, she did get called "Buddy" b/c she looked like a boy in her blue cap:) She was still super cute, though!!
After the game with Mommy
After the game with Daddy...she was falling asleep on the way back to the car.

We decided to take a long weekend and get out of town to the Dallas area. We stayed in The Colony at a nice 2 month old Residence Inn....those are my favorite with a baby! We pretty much always go for a suite-type of hotel now that we have M. It was great, because we could put her to bed and then stay up late and watch TV in the other room. It also had a full kitchen, which was great for her meals.

We had fun eating, shopping (Ikea, Galleria, Central Market (where we got some GREAT video footage of M dancing to a live band), Home Goods, etc.), exploring some new areas, eating some more, and attending a Texas Rangers game! This was M's first baseball game! They were playing the Twins, which just so happened to be Josh's first game back in 1986! She loved clapping and people-watching!

Wish I could share all of the pictures from our fun weekend. Soon, very soon!! We really had a great time and M did great! I am so thankful she is such a great traveler!

Now, we look forward to meeting M's new cousin, Violet, tomorrow!!!

On a side note, thank you for all of the sweet comments and encouraging words on my last post. I am so thankful for the great support system that we (and M) have!! I hope that you will continue to support the voiceless little ones out there, because it's all about THEM!!

Glad M is a Ranger's fan and that you all had a great trip. I look forward to seeing the video

What a wonderful family time. That's great info on the Residence Inn, we avoid hotels at all costs because we end up hiding in the bathroom whispering while the kids go to sleep in the same room! Good to know!

Love those pictures and her in the hat! Can't wait to see you all on Saturday!

How fun! She is so cute! Don't worry if Hannah doesn't have a big bow in her hair she gets called he/him even though she is dressed head to toe in pink :) Atleast M was being called buddy because of her blue hat! Have fun today with your precious niece(s)!
