|Yay! We made it!!!|
Traveling with a baby is always stress-free, right??
I met my mom at work and the girls entertained Brady with their singing and dancing, ha!
Yia Yia Mary's. My mom has told me how great they food there is, but I had yet to try it so we took advantage of going there since we were in the Galleria area. And oh my! It was delicious!!! The hummus was the best, I've ever eaten! You can tell it's made fresh! I left mom order for us since I was a little over whelmed with the menu, ha.
We ordered hummus, fresh olive bread, shrimp mykonos, and a beef tenderloin gyro. It was all soo good!! I can't wait to go back...I've been craving that hummus ever since and I'm not really even a fan of hummus.
Saturday, I needed to return some things at Marshall's and Macy's so we headed to The Woodlands for the day. We had a late lunch at a mexican restaurant that was really good. The best part - Brady slept pretty much through the entire meal. After lunch, we shopped! Brady did okay in Marshall's but not so much in the mall. I'm starting to think he definitely takes after his father in the shopping department! ;) We ordered pizza for dinner, love an easy dinner!
Someone was happy to be out of the stroller...
High Home Fabrics is like a fabric hoarder's dream...which meant I was in heaven! If only I had a ton of money to spend!!
So we used this book to distract him, since he wanted to crawl everywhere. We would push the buttons on the side to play the music. The next morning, he seemed liked he was trying to push the buttons himself with his thumb. So I showed him twice how to push the button and what do you know...he started pushing it himself! I was so excited AND proud!
Genius baby?!?!? ha!
So the Aggies officially joined the SEC on Sunday. Perfect reason to reason his A&M bubble. (because I don't think daddy is going to let us wear bubbles for too much longer!) :(
I always get so sentimental/sad when it's time to leave my parents. I guess I just don't like being so far away from them. Tuesday morning, my mom was already gone to work so I loaded us all up and we were on the road by 11:30. I timed it just right where B. slept for the first 2 hours. It was wonderful! We stopped for about 30 minutes to nurse and just take a break from being in his seat. He fussed for about 10 minutes then slept until we pulled into the garage. We made it home in 4 hours, not bad! The trip home was actual pretty pleasant! :)
I'm so thankful for the time we got to spend at my mom's. I wish my dad would have been able to be with us, Papa always misses out due to work. It was so great to get away and spend some time in the big city. I won't lie, I love the big city!! So many places to eat, shop, and explore! Thanks mom/mimi for a wonderful time!! It was so great to sleep in, take naps, and be off bath duty for a few nights. I know Brady loved being spoiled by his Mimi. We miss you so much already! And thanks daddy for letting us get away for a few days...I know you are glad we are home.
And from the looks of it, I might want to consider going on a diet after this trip - ha! I know this post is already on photo overload but I just couldn't resist! My little Aggie during our little break on the way home...
