..."popsicles on the porch"...what a great afternoon treat and our favorite way to spend time together! These are simple and precious moments! Princess #1 and Princess #2 along with Little Man #1 and #2 are my inspiration for most of these writings.

Thanksgiving Fun

This was our first year to take the kids to the Thanksgiving Parade downtown. As you can see, the kids had a blast! 

Instead of having to wake up early and rush the kids out the door, we decided to rent a hotel room to avoid the morning madness.  The girls were so excited and couldn't wait to get to the hotel after dinner.  They had a blast staying up late and watching their movies on Tim's laptop. Though we were up early so that we could find a good place to sit it was stress free.  We even had time to grab a little breakfast together before our busy day began.  

The best part was that the parade passed right in front of our hotel so all we had to do was walk out and take a seat...perfect view for the kids ! No drama, no parking, no rushing, etc... It was definitely worth it!  We hope to make this a new little family tradition! 

Here are a few pics of the our time together:

Afterwards, we went to Oma and Opa’s House for Thanksgiving Lunch and had a great time hanging out with the family.

Stomping Grounds Playland

The kids and I just got back from a new place that opened up in Sugarland called Stomping Grounds Playland. It's off of Williams Trace right next door to Michael's in the First Colony Commons Shopping Center.

The girls got to run wild and they even had a little tot section for Cash to play in! Moms get to gab and watch the kids play while sipping coffee in the lounge area. I even saw one mom with her computer! Apparently she's been there before because she got there when most of the other moms were rounding up the kids to go home, so she had the whole place to herself!

If you're thinking about grabbing lunch there it can be a bit expensive, but they did have some reasonably priced snacks and other kiddy foods.

It was a great afternoon. My crew had a blast and crashed as soon as we got home!

This place is definitely worth checking out!
