Our adventure started off with an exciting bang that set the tone for our whole three day weekend.. Mr. V surprised us with a weekend getaway, to Frisco, Texas,( I love the Dallas/Plano/Frisco area it's one of my favorite places to go).
Bright & Early at 5:00 am was our wake up call. We packed up and hit the road with smiles on our faces and the excitement of not knowing where we were heading or what we were going to do when we got there.
I've been wanting to stay in the Embassy Suites in Frisco Texas but every time we go to book our stay they are always booked. so imagine my excitement when we pulled up and Mr. V said he booked us a room for the three day weekend!! We have been honorary Hilton members before we had kids so we always stay with The Hilton chain. Embassy Suites is our favorite, how can you go wrong with complimentary " Happy Hour and refreshment's" plus a complimentary cooked to order breakfast!
The Frisco Embassy Suites has a relaxing Botanical Spa inside, just what every momma needs a little R&R
I got a little ahead of myself ( I was daydreaming of "happy hour" and spa days) before we arrived at our home away from home, we made a little visit to the Dallas Zoo.
We love the Zoo, it's one of our favorite things to do as a family. We started our traditional Zoo visits when K1 was just a few months old, and we have continued it with each one of our Vega beauties. Little tradtions as well as big traditions are important to our family.
Here are a few of our favorite pictures we took this weekend..
I love My Tribe.
Time for dinner with my favorite people.
K2 just couldn't hang with us, apparently we party to hard and long( it was only 7:30 pm).
Mr. V kept the surprise factor going so we never knew where we were going or what we were doing.
Day 2: Hawaiian Falls: The Colony.
Lets just say we had a car full of overly excited girls when they found out we were going to their first water park. I know someone of you are saying, What?? their first water park? I have major water anxiety issues, that go way back to my childhood, but I'm not a party pooper!
If you are ever in this area make sure you go check it out, we had a BLAST!! The weather that day was perfect sunny with a slight breeze. of course everyone is on summer break so yes it was crowded but it wasn't bad the lines weren't long and it wasn't that uncomfortable body to body, your touching me crowded.
We had an unbelievable experience and meet Darren Mcfadden and his family. Just for those who don't know, Darren Mcfadden is a Dallas Cowboy Running back, former player of The Oakland Raiders and former Razorback Hog, WPS!! We have lived in Arkansas for close to 9 years so being a Hog Fan kind of goes hand in hand. So anyone is Arkansas can share the excitement and love we we're feeling. I was talking to his wife ( I had no idea who she was at the time), Mr. V said "do you know who that is," ummm no. He explained that she was Darren Mcfadden's wife. I was blown away. We continued to talk with them, our kids played at the water park and to my surprise they were completely normal down to earth people. No security, no look at me I'm famous just another couple tasking their kids to the water park. No, I don't have any pictures we took the two pictures up top as soon as we got there I out my phone in the locker and enjoyed every moment "being" in the moment verses my usual have to capture every moment and post it. I'm working on "being" lately, but that's for another day another post. No pictures only the cool memories of hanging out with him and his family at the water park.
Family time is very important to us. Here are a few pictures of our little weekend getaway..
However you spent the 4th of July weekend, I hope you were surround by family, friends, good food, lots of laughter but most importantly remembered and gave thanks for the reason we are able to celebrate
