Spring Break {Dallas}

I should probably break this post up into a few to tell you all the great details about Spring Break, but in an effort to get caught up I'm going to put it all together. 
We were so ready for a little break from the real world and desperately needed some friend time. So we called up some of our favorites, invited ourselves over and packed up and hit the road. They were so sweet to let us crash in their cute apartment taking up and making messes of every inch of space they had! 
The first day we arrived we caught up with friends, visited a super cool grocery store for the essentials for any friend sleepover {pizza & ice cream} and got acquainted with Penny!
The day wasn't complete without an 11pm trip to Whataburger. All I can say is Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit.  
The next day we visited the Klyde Warren park downtown! It literally sits on top of the highway! We had a picnic lunch, climbed on the spider web and the lookout, spun on the merry go round, and more! It ended up being a really nice day to be out in the sun! 
We wore the boys out so Katie and I hit Sonic Happy Hour and did some shopping while the boys napped. 
We also visited the Galleria and got some great deals before meeting family for dinner!
Our last day ended with some more shopping and then Hudson's big finale-Legoland! Unfortunately for us there were about a 156,390 more kids in the place than could actually fit and it was really overwhelming.  
Poor Hudson just had a rough day. Isn't that the way it always go when you've really been looking forward to something? Legos thrown at him, smashed hand, lost in the play place, he as just struggling and completely worn out from all of the fun we'd had for the past few days. 
And did I mention we were in Dallas with no stroller? Trying to wrangle a busy 16 month old who just wants to go. 
They were both troopers and we did as much as we could. It definitely made this mama sad that we couldn't enjoy it a little more :( Oh well, maybe another time.

I thought the mini sets of popular sights in Dallas were super fun! After we had done everything we could but completely melt, we decided it was nap time in the car on the ride home. Goodbye Dallas until next time!
