My parents came up last week for a staycation...we just stayed around Fort Worth, but found some fun things that were out of the ordinary to get into. :) Like dressing up as Star Wars characters!
It was my mom's birthday last month so we all took her out to dinner to celebrate...Macaroni Grill, yummo!
Then, as it turns out, the Lord had planned for our air conditioner to go out. So we decided that we would rather be in a hotel than in a hot house. I love staying in a hotel! You can crank down the AC, you don't have to make the bed, and there is usually free breakfast. :) Here are my parents and the boys getting an early bite before a morning dip in the hotel pool - oh yeah, another perk!!
After we checked out of the hotel we went to downtown Weatherford. We shopped at the little antique shops and had lunch at the charming Yesterday's Cafe.
The next day (our ac was fixed with only a slight adjustment - praise the Lord!!) we ventured out to Dinosaur Valley.
Shock!! The river was totally dried up! This is the only little patch of water we could find. I can't believe it was so dry. I guess that just tells how dry Texas has been lately.
Some of the dino tracks of Dinosaur Valley! How cool!
This picture is not funny because Brent slipped and fell right in the water. But what IS funny is that seconds before he declared what little desire he had to get wet. :)
Finding the perfect skipping stone....
I took all these pics with my iphone due to the fact that I can't find my camera charger. I bought a new app that give your camera different effects....the one above and below are the result of my experimenting...
Shopping at Target, of course!
My parent bought Lady Jane a vanity for her room as a new baby gift. :) They (mostly mom, honestly!) put it together. I think it is just adorable - every woman needs a vanity!
