Family Fun Day

Friday, Brian and I both took off work. We have Columbus Day off today so we decided to take Friday off to make for a 4 day weekend. Originally, we were going to somewhere out of town for the weekend but we decided we would stay home and just do some fun things together. So, Friday morning, we headed off for some fun


The first stop was at the Disney Store. We went there for Mallory's birthday and she has been wanting to go back. Since we aren't going to Disney World anytime soon, this is the next best thing for her. Once she saw the store, she got very excited and danced the whole way there


She doesn't even know where to start first when she gets there. I love seeing her big smile. We found Rapunzel's hair and she had to put it on


We got Liesl a tea party set for her birthday and ever since then, Mallory has been wanting one. Brian went back to Target to get one like we got Liesl but they were all gone so as we were looking in the Disney store, Mallory found a Princess Sofia the First tea set and so she was pretty excited to get her tea set!


After the Disney store, we headed to the Merry-Go-Round. Last time, Brian rode with Mallory so this time, it was my turn. Not going to lie, I was pretty excited. I can't tell you the last time I've ridden a Merry-go-Round



I rode once and then she rode by herself. She thought she was big stuff!


We then went to the Lego Store and Brian and Mallory raced Lego cars. You can guess who won


We ate lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. We all enjoyed our food so much!


Our last stop was the University of Texas store. Last time we were there, we saw some cute small pom poms that we new Mallory would love so we headed to get her some. We knew they would definitely get good use since our school colors are Orange and White and she could take them to the football games. Brian has always loved the University of Texas so he really likes to go by and look at everything.

As we pulled up we were quickly reminded that this past weekend was TX/OU weekend and the store was a lot more busy than usual. They were planning a pep rally there so some UT cheerleaders and members of the Pom Squad were there. Mallory was a little shy at first and then got so excited!


She liked showing them her pom poms


She was much less excited about seeing Bevo the Longhorn so we just saw him from afar


We also heard that Ricky Williams and Vince Young were going to be there so Brian and I were both excited about that. We waited until they came and Brian was in line to get a picture with them but then we found out we had to buy a $80 football to get a pic so we quickly passed. But I did get a pic of them so it was just neat seeing them.


We definitely stayed longer at the store than expected but it turned out to be so much more fun than we had planned! One the way home, this one just had too much fun. Yes, she had to hold her tea set and the garage opener. She always wants to push the button to open the garage and she saw it as were heading home and had to hold it.


And Brian finished the fun day off at a stop by Dairy Queen for a blizzard


It was such a wonderful time together!

We went to the Disney Outlet store on Friday and they were having a 40% all costume sale. I couldn't believe it! It took everything in my to not buy all of the princess dresses.

Yay for sweet Mallory getting a tea set! I remember reading about how much she loves tea parties/picnics.

A great weekend and now you get to enjoy a Monday away from work too! Yay!!
