"Little" Girls Trip 2013

This would have been our sixth year going on Girls trip.  I was so sad not to get to go this year.  It just wasn't feasible with my finances and a bunch of other stuff going on.  So, Shannon and I decided that we could do one night at City Centre in Houston with our little girls.  The girls are the same age and aside from the chorus of "mine!" we heard every  now and then, they really got along very well!  

We checked in around 3:00 and took the girls to the pool.  They swam and splashed and ran in the pool area that was completely empty.  Then we went on up to our room which had a sleeping room and a sitting room.  

The girls colored and played. 

and made fingernails with the marker caps.  

then we got ready and headed out to dinner at GRUB, a burger bar.

  It was delightful and perfect for the girls.  They ate and jumped and sang.  Then we gave them some wipes and they cleaned the floor.  :-/

Then we headed out to the green to listen to the music and let the girls do somersaults and dance and run. 

Shannon was so smart!  She brought a bottle of wine in her big ole bag and opened it before we headed out.  We then poured it into our cappuccino cups which she had remembered to bring... and we had our built in cocktails.  :)  We didn't know if they would let us bring wine with us...  turns out that there were other people with cocktails but ...  this worked perfectly.  :)
This was not the girls trip we are used to having and we sure missed being a part of our annual trip but on a quick whim... this was so much fun and I'd like to do it again.  We woke up on Sunday and took the girls to Flora & Muse for brunch and it was a delightful way to end a nice staycation.  Thank you Shannon for suggesting it.  :)
