our first family weekend away!

So this past weekend we went to Dallas for work reasons, but we were able to have some quality family time as well. It was fun. We left before 8:30 on Saturday and when we got there, we went to the Dallas World Aquarium. The place was awesome! I recommend it to anyone. Toby and I read a woman's review that said it's not very stroller friendly. And I very much agree. I'm glad I wore Jonyn instead of trying to push a stroller through some of the narrow walkways with a bunch of people. Then we went and had some lunch at a little sub shop, then went to watch "How to Train Your Dragon" at the IMAX. I had Jonyn in the Moby style wrap and he slept through all but the last 10 minutes of the movie. It was great! And we were both comfy. When we got back to the hotel, we ordered some pizza from the hotel room that night. We were back early enough that we just chilled and relaxed. The boys loved the big bed and the whole hotel experience! And on Sunday after visiting a couple of churches (Jonyn was in the wrap and slept all the way through service, the older two went to kid's church, which they LOVED), we ate at Pappadeaux for Toby's birthday (I actually had fish. Tilapia. And it was good. Mostly because it was NOT fishy tasting). Then we came home. It was a lot of fun, the boys loved it and so did Toby and I.
