Field trippin'

We love field trip days!

The big girls had a four hour, aquatic, science class at a lake today...about 35 miles from where we live.

Near 90 degrees today in North Texas.  But there was a breeze, thank the Lord!

Since I didn't want to drive the distance twice, Stan and I had a mother/son date while we waited :)

(Clementine stayed home with David.)


We went the a nearby mall...and I am NOT a mall person.

Thank God we hit the jack pot in finding this particular mall.  Oh the things he did!

(The darn thing didn't give us enough time to position the lens so we just had fun with it!)

(Being a gentleman and waiting for our ticket number to be called.)

(Stan scored on his wacky meal from Sonic...a bug guide!)

Waiting for the glass elevator to arrive...

Going down.



(The boy has some moves :)

(Found him looking at himself in the mirror :)

After 2 1/2 hours in that mall, I had enough.  So we headed across the interstate...

...where we window shopped...

...until it was time to head back to the lake area.

The lake is 30,000 acres with a six mile dam.

It's always a little bit strange parking there!

And last but not least...

Mabel :)

Can you believe I forgot their bug spray?!

  1. what a fun science trip that must have been for the girls, and a nice little time with Stan!! it sure looks HOT there! wow, 90 degrees in April? we had 52 today, which is fine with me ;) was it nice to have a little break from baby C too? just for a little while, and you were probably really missing her by the time you all got home!!

  2. What a fun trip for the girls and a great mommy-son date for you and Stan. It looks like you had a blast and it was probably much better than out in that heat. Yikes. How fun!

  3. Aww your mother/son date looks like so much fun! I love that photostrip!

  4. What a sweet mom you are! Looks like your day with Stan was. Just great!

  5. your pictures are beautiful! so are your children! when my daughters were little we had date night with dad once a month...and they could pick what they wanted to do...movies, shop, Hershey one daughter picked going up and down the escalator...
    I am your newest follower..pls follow back if you can.

  6. Looks like the girls had a great time, even if it was a bit hot!! I'm not a big fan of the mall anymore either, but glad you guys had a nice time just the two of you :)

  7. Oh, I love field trip days...Getting out of the house is my cup of tea:) Looks like you and little man had some great Mama/Son time...Terrific photos to capture the moment and memories. Kinda looks like you had the place to yourself!? Don't all kids love elevators? Especially glass ones. The girls are getting so big... Seems like Sally is stretching up like crazy!

    1. Tiffany...Sally is almost 5'8!!!! (scream)

  8. That looked like a cool field trip. I am with you on not being a mall person. In fact, I don't even like to shop at all. I have turned into an shopper all the way! Stan the man looked like he had a great time. Happy finals week!

  9. That is funny about the mall. Mark just had a sentence (for dictation) about a mom going to the mall. His comment was "mom, how come you don't ever go to the mall?". Normally, I would rather have root canal, but you and Stan look like you had a magical mom/son date. I love the way you took the opportunity to get some fun pics of him and the two of you. That one on one time is so precious!!


Thanks for stopping by!
