Simple title, but true. The two boys and I headed up to Dallas for the weekend and spent time with my parents, brother, sister-in-law and their kids (plus one of my aunts) and it was good. I always worry that with running up for just the weekend the drive there and back are going to make the trip not really worth it, but totally not the case this time.
We went to the Dallas Children's Parade and despite some borderline rain, the sky was "spitting", it was a great time.
Much playing and joy was had during the parade and after. We then finished the day up with a trip to visit Santa Claus!
All the kids were great and Santa was great, so it was just good.
And Trajan got to be a sheep in a Christmas pageant at church in Dallas which he liked. Then we ate again and headed home. We got to the house in time to change Chiron's clothes, run to the bathroom and then go to a baby shower for the boy's third cousin who should be born in the next month!
And to add one more bit of awesomeness to a great weekend, Chiron had an appointment with the allergist this morning to discuss food allergies/sensitivities and guess who weighed 17 lb?
