Reunion in Colleyville

December 3, 2012

When Jordan and I first planned our holiday trip, it made so much sense for Cooper and I to hang out in Texas for a few weeks while he flew back to Boston after Thanksgiving and  finished up classes and finals. After about day 2 without him, we were both thinking, “who’s idea was this?!?!” We miss Jordan like crazy. But it really has been great to see friends and family (and go to sonic, rosa’s, chickfila, and basically just go park in parking lots for fun, and take advantage of every drive-thru I see).

This past weekend, we headed to Colleyville to meet up with Amy and Allison and the girls for a little reunion weekend. We stayed at Allison’s parents’ house, and they sure treated us well!! Not only did they let us take over their whole house and scatter toys all over the place, but they made sure we ate the greatest food all weekend long, and treated us to so many fun things. Such sweethearts.

We fed the ducks and played at the park Friday afternoon. This weather is unreal. It snowed in Boston Friday – so weird.


That McKenna is just too cool.2012-12-03_014

We taught Ella the turkey high five. I think she’s mastered it. 2012-12-03_015

I think Coop was testing the waters for a proposal.2012-12-03_0162012-12-03_0172012-12-03_018

We went to the Gaylord Texan Saturday morning to go to the ice exhibit – Merry Madagascar. It was pretty amazing. However, I don’t have any pictures because Coop was quite the unhappy camper. Haha. But it was still cool to see and Ella loved it! Maybe not the best toddler activity around :)

As we were driving back from the Gaylord, Allison saw a sign that said “Christmas in the Park.” So her dad looked into it, and Santa was in their neighborhood, along with a horse and carriage! It was perfect. And we didn’t even have to pay $25 for a picture of screaming kids with Santa. Ever since McKenna and Cooper were born, we have joked that they’ll get married someday… So this one will most definitely be in their wedding slideshow.


The kiddos had so many sweet moments together. It sure is fun to see how they interact. We love making memories with these peeps!!2012-12-03_022
