The Arboretum is my absolute favorite thing to do in Dallas. It is always so gorgeous. The kids just love running around, and it is so great for all of to get some fresh air. This time it was all decked out for Fall. We even met up with Sue, Rachel and Em to visit for a bit.
Next up... The Texas State Fair. Lots of fun was had. We had the original corn dog (yum yum), rode lots of rides, and saw lots of stuff. The kids loved the petting zoo and the spinning ride with Daddy. We also rode the log ride all together and got splashed. They loved that. And, they came out giggling like crazy from the Bubble House.
Daddy and Will rode in one end of the big boat. Ella insisted on riding the at the opposite end. She had a blast.
We headed to Dallas this weekend to see Mamaw and Grandpa. We also had several things planned while we were there. First, we went up to Mamaw's old office to see some wonderful ladies that Brian has known since he was little. We toured around the building and had a great visit.
Will's room is in transition right now. It was finally time to get rid of our fabulous crib/toddler bed. Sniff Sniff. Our babies have grown up. Will got a pretty cool low bunk bed. We are still doing some modifications, but he is already loving it. Ella had a sleepover.
Today Will got in the car and immediately said, "Mom, we do NOT drink from the toilet. That is SO yucky!"
My stomach dropped. I said, "That's right we do not drink, touch or do anything with toilet water. Did you do something with toilet water?"
Will, "No. Lilly drank toilet water."
I was grossed out, but I continued questioning and drilling in that we do not. He seemed to understand.
When we picked up Ella at school, Will told her the story and she about threw up and then began to giggle when she was sure that Will did not.
That night we were all in the living room. Ella and I were playing Connect Four. Daddy was watching the Rangers (the usual), and Will was just being silly (the usual). I said, "Will, tell Daddy what happened at school." He told him and Brian had the exact reaction I did. Brian was grossed out and began questioning him the same way that I did. Then, I said, "Will, you don't want to drink out of the toilet because then the girls won't want to kiss you." Daddy agreed and reiterated that point... "If you drink toilet water, the girls will definitely not want to kiss you." Then, Ella under her breath said...
We have and old time barber shop right near the house. It's an old time shop that was bought by someone a few years ago and updated in only in a few areas. They still offer all of the old time services, but they offer the ability to book online etc. I thought it was time to move away from the little kid hair place. So, Will and I headed to Kirby's Barber Shop. Will loved it. I definitely think it's a place that Brian will start to take him, but we had to get his hair cut for school pictures.
