Our family road trip to Grapevine/Dallas

We have lived here in Texas for 4 years and outside of a trip to San Antonio we have not really visited this big beautiful state. Jeff had a few unexpected days off work so we decided to plan a small road trip. We had our music playlist, our road trip snacks and we were off to Grapevine Texas. We had such a great drive. I forgot how much I actually like to be in the car/truck on a road trips. I think the kids getting a bit older has helped me start to enjoy this again. It is a bit more difficult to enjoy long car rides if you have to constantly stop to nurse and change a baby or hourly potty breaks.

Our trip started with Lego Discovery center. We enjoyed a full evening of lego building and going on a few small rides. Zachary was extremely overjoyed when we surprised him with being able to choose a Lego set. The Next Day we spent the entire day at the hotel/resort. I must say that Wolf lodge is an amazing resort for a family to stay at. We enjoyed swimming in their wonderful water park.


The last day we headed to the American Girl Doll store. We kept this a surprise. So when we arrived at this store she was extremely excited.  She has been looking at the American girl catalog for some time now so she knew the exact doll she was hoping to get.  She was also surprised and overjoyed when we told her she could pic it today. She kept asking, “Will I have to save it for Christmas?”


When we got home Jeff had two more days off for us to relax together.
