Choo Choo Food Truck

For the first time in years, we had Good Friday off.  It was a gorgeous day so we met the Skinner's and the McDonald's for a day of fun on the Trinity. 

We road the trinity train which is always a big hit...

 Seven kids feels a little like a daycare field trip... but they were great.  A little popcorn goes a long way! 
For lunch we checked out one of the city's newest food truck parks.  What?!  Why didn't I think of this?  Probably because I used to call these things "Roach Coaches."  Oh how the food truck has changed!  There's a great little park on University right on the Trinity River.  Family friendly and really fun. And the food was good too! 
This takes me back to their first "date" to the children's museum when Reese tried to kiss Campbell.  This one is called, "Wow, is he dreamy!"  Love it!! 

Stockyard Stampede

Spring break brought some beautiful spring weather this year and we took advantage by going downtown to the Stockyard Stampede.  I can't believe I've lived in Fort Worth all my life and never been.  The stampede was just the beginning of a fun afternoon on Exchange...

 It took a lot of coaxing to get Reese on this thing.  She finally agreed, but only if Emma would do it with her.  She wants to be just like her cousin! 

 All our little Texans... love it that all the cousins are close and get along so well!  Such a blessing to live right up the street from all of them!

 The kids loved getting to go see where the longhorns live and how they take care of them. 

Emma and Caden did the maze... while they were trying to find their way out, the littles spent some much needed time in jail.
Tucker couldn't wait to get on this thing.  He keeps asking when he can get his own horse... he hopped up on this saddle like a little cowboy. He didn't care one bit that it was a cow.  


Pump It Up With The Big Kids

Seems like we have about a birthday party a week these days.  Chris says "whippin'" but I say "free entertainment!"  The kids always have so much fun.  Tucker had a t-ball game at the same time as the last party so I took the girls while the boys played ball.  Rylan was in heaven... totally jumping and sliding with the big kids. 

I don't think I've seen Reese have this much fun in a long time.  Gymnastics has turned my cautious little scaredy cat into one brave girl.  It was great seeing her have so much fun with her friends.

She was great with Rylan too... including her and taking care of her.  These girls are turning into the best of friends! 

Where's Your Pole

Have I mentioned how obsessed Tucker is with Firemen and Policemen right now?  For the longest time he said he wanted to be a fireman when he grew up. Now it's a policeman, and I'm pretty sure it's because he think policemen get to drive faster than firemen. 

He was crazy excited when he and Reese were invited to a birthday party at the fire station. Tucker was all about it... he hung on every word!

Reese was there more for the social aspects of the party!! Not sure these girls let go of each other the whole afternoon.  So proud that Reese has come out of her shell this year and made lots of friends!

 They had a blast... and learned a lot too!  Fun party! Please notice that Reese is the only one not wearing her fire hat.  See... told you she was only there to socialize! 
I'm pretty sure Tucker asked them "Where's your pole?"  about 20 times.  He was a little disappointed that he didn't get to slide down the fireman's pole.
