Go With The Flow

Last Thursday, my friend and I thought we would be fun Mommies and take our kids to Dallas where a train promoting a Disney movie coming out later this year would be. We just knew our kids would love it!! We would get to take a tour of the train and watch a premier of the movie....ALL FOR FREE!! Thanks to Marilyn Monroe on the GPS we found exactly where we needed to go. Us bright Mommies, however, did not think about the fact that you have to pay to park in the city. So, after scrounging through the change in both of our wallets, we managed to come up with the $4 to park in a lot somewhat close to the train station. We trek with all kids to the station and walk inside where we are informed that there is a TWO HOUR wait to see the train!! REALLY?!?!?! Well, now what are we going to do? We have made the drive and paid the last of any money in our wallet to park, we don't want it to be a wasted trip but we are unwilling to stand in a two hour wait line outside in the heat with six kids to see a train. So instead of seeing a train like we thought, we took a little tour of the area with six kids in the heat. The kids were a lot less disappointed than I thought they would be and had a good time anyway.

Payton saw this building and asked if we could go in the palace because of course, that's what any princess would think this was. She's so cute!! :)

After walking around for awhile, everyone was hot and thirsty so we stopped for some cool air, drinks and cookies. YUM!

We went with the flow and had a fun time even though it wasn't what we had originally planned.
Until next time...
