Fort Worth Stockyards

We took the boys to the Fort Worth Stockyards on Sunday.  It was a beautiful day, and a perfect opportunity to spend the day in the sun.

Grant got to ride a pony, which he LOVED

Then we all boarded the train.  We decided to do the open air cabin since it was such a pretty day.  That didn't deter Ryan from trying to fling himself over the railing, however.  

At 4:00, the cattle drive starts.  Grant got a good view from atop Dad's shoulders.

And then, Grant got to ride the LITTLE train, too! 

There was a photographer on the train who came by and took a family picture before the ride started.  In true fashion, Grant makes a face instead of smiling.  Ha.

The Perot Museum

And Gant really loved it!  Ryan wasn't as into it, but I'm sure he'll come around eventually. 

We also got to see the dinosaur exhibit before it was over. We got a family year-long membership, and Grant loved the children's museum so much, so we hope to take him a few times and make that purchase worth it. He threw the biggest fit when we had to leave. He was in LOVE with this place.

Little Pool Time

Rob and I spent some time in the front beds this afternoon during Ryan's naptime. Wondering how we kept Grant entertained?  Yeah, we've become *that* family. The one who puts the janky inflatable pool in the front yard. But who cares because Grant LOVED it.

Last day of vacation!

These kids were worn out.  We packed up and headed home.  So sad to leave, but we had a great time, and we made some great memories.

Galveston, 2014 - Day 3

On Wednesday, we hung out at the beach club!  Grant had a great time in the kiddie pool, meeting new friends, and playing in the sun.  This kid was made for water.  We sure do need to get him some swimming lessons, pronto.

Ryan hung back at the condo, chilling out in the air conditioning.

The previous night, I had gone out on the beach solo with a flashlight to catch crabs for Grant.  He was dying to see a crab, but during the day, it would never happen.  I ended up catching 8!  They are shockingly easy to catch.  I only had a bucket with a lid, plastic shovel, and a flashlight!  I released all but the biggest crab, and brought him back to the condo for Grant to see.  

After swimming at the beach club, Grant and Daddy took the crab to the beach to let him go.  They dug a little hole for him, and then dumped him in.  They took video of him burrowing deeper into the hole.  This crab was ready to be back under ground!

Here are Daddy and Grant coming back from the beach.

Later that night, we went to Gaido's Seafood Restaurant, where we battled the terrible twos threes, and tried to enjoy a delicious dinner.  But, hey, we were making memories, right???  :)
