Weekend in Rickreal

The 19th annual Rickreal Swap Meet was this weekend. Doug has done sound reinforcement/emceed for this event from the beginning. The kids and I usually go down for the day, but this weekend I surprised them by taking them down Saturday night and staying over in a hotel and playing around town. It turned out to be such a fun weekend with my kids!

Enjoy the photo diary of our weekend!

Ready to hit the hotel pool!

They could have stayed there all afternoon!

After dinner with grandma, grandad, and daddy (sadly I did not get a photo!) I took the kids for frozen yogurt. Perfect for the hot evening!

They think hotels are pretty cool! Due to all the swimming they slept VERY well!

We started the morning off with vanilla bean creams at Starbucks!

We then headed to the arboretum near Dallas City Park, which led us down to the creek.

After playing around a bit it was decided that the kids MUST get there bathing suits on and play in the water. With the temps at almost 80 degrees by 11am it seemed like the right thing to do! To say we all had fun would be an understatement. The kids seriously could have been in the water all day. They played well together and had such a great time!

I love this pick of them heading back to the car after a few hours playing in the creek!

After a stop at Subway for lunch, we headed to the fairgrounds to join daddy at the swap meet!

Sweaty kids! It was almost 100 degrees!

They always love to see their dad!
...and they love helping him announce raffle winners!

After getting home that evening after the swap meet and getting a nice cleansing shower, both kids went to sleep quickly and happy, both of them so thankful for the fun weekend we had. I am pretty thankful, too!!
