a visit to W-town

Gary and I have been looking forward to visiting our good friends in Waco for months.  We planned to visit them once a month, but with soccer and a busy school schedule we haven't visited them in months and that was just way too long!!

This past weekend we loaded up, got a pet-sitter for our herd of dogs and headed down to Waco town.  Our kids had a fun time playing with their 'cousins'.   Macy is old enough to babysit, so the adults got to enjoy an adult dinner while the kids played at home!  

Ninfa's had the best green dip and the best margaritas ever.  
I was thinking I would like to move back to Waco just so I could eat there all the time!

After dinner we went to watch the Baylor football game {sic' em bears!!} and we also did some country dancing.  Four words....Yay for adult time!  Gary and I really needed a date night.  We don't have date nights very often, so when we have one it is very much enjoyed!

The kids had fun playing Just Dance.  Mia and Layla are very close in age, so I barely saw them.  They were reading or playing in Mia's room the entire time.   Macy is older, but she loves playing with Hayden, so they played the whole time too, which meant I got to sit and visit with the adults!  

The chair seen above was also a huge hit.  It is large and round.  It is upstairs in the loft area of their house, so it is basically like a merry-go-round.  Lots of giggles and laughs were heard all weekend!

I love fun weekends with fun friends!

Now we back home just hanging out.  Gary is on vacation all this week, so we don't have anything going on at all.  It is wonderful.  I don't have to keep the kids quiet while Gary works in the office!  We are baking cookies, making rice crispy treats, eating trash aka Chex Mix and having a Big Hunter battle on the Wii!

I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving week!

What a fun time! I'm kind of jealous that your hubby is off all week. Mine is working, which means I have to entertain the kiddos by myself! Cookies are on our to do list too...and watching The Charlie Brown Thanksgiving:)
