Jaxon & I had a good trip to Tx and back! We were glad to get home today to our daddy/hubby! We had a whirlwind trip. We stopped in 6 different cities along the way and back! I will let the pictures tell the story!
We left home right at 10:00 on Friday morning. With Jaxon being fully potty trained for about 3 months now, I was still a little nervous traveling for 3 hours with no backup. We went potty right before we left and I tried to put a pull up on him but he said “mommy, no, I’m a big boy and I need to wear underwear”. So…he wore his big boy undies, and it was wonderful…NO ACCIDENTS all weekend! I’m so proud!
This was after our FIRST stop…A while back Stacey (my sister) introduced me to the egg rolls at Jack in the box. We do not have one here, so I stop in Ardmore when I can to get some! Of course we needed a potty break too!
Here is Jax entertaining himself with some stickers

Our SECOND stop was in Flower Mound at Shauna’s house! It was nice to be able to visit with her for a while. Our kids played well together, too bad we don’t live closer we could have playdates more often!
Our kids – it was beautiful outside on Friday
Macy needed a bath when we came in from outside. We were upstairs so that Shauna could write down my directions to the highway. Jaxon was having fun splashing Macy with the water & Macy was loving it!
Our THIRD stop was in Lake Worth at the grocery store. Since we were having stacking tacos for dinner, I HAD to stop to get the ingredients for homemade guacamole!!
Our FOURTH stop was at my parents house in Azle My dad had just gone to sams and bought this huge block of cheddar cheese. Jaxon LOVES cheese and will often take a big chunk to try to eat when I am grating it at home. Well, this was no different to him. He thought it would be really funny to take a bite out of this huge block.Of course I should have been stopping him, but it was more fun to take pictures!
the aftermath – looks like a little mouse!
Friday night after dinner we went to the hospital to see my granddaddy. I will update more on that later.
Here is Jaxon with my grandmother and the bunnies. He kept making the bunnies kiss, then he would knock one of them out. I’m not sure where he gets all this stuff, but he keeps us laughing!
The three of us
On Saturday morning I made breakfast then we headed to Grandbury for our FIFTH stop of the weekend. My parents bought some land out there so we went to see it! I love the area they bought in & can’t wait to see how it develops.
Here is Jax on the way…
Finally! He stayed up a little too late on Friday night, so he was pretty grumpy on Saturday, but we made it!
We fed the ducks some Cheez-Its – they loved them!

Once we left there we decided to have a picnic. We had found this really nice park while driving around so we got some sandwiches at Schlotzky’s and ate at the park. There were some nice covered tables and the weather was perfect, so it was a great lunch. Jaxon was one of 3 kids there so he had a blast!
Here is his with his new “friend” – mr. pinecone. Poor mr. pinecone had about 10 trips down the slide!
Our SIXTH stop for the weekend was at the Ft. Worth Stockyards. We had been planning for a while to ride the train sometime. So, this was the day for it! Jaxon was disappointed at first that it wasn’t going to be Thomas, but I told him it was Thomas’ friend and he was ok with that!
I love his face here – this is when he first saw the big train coming!
Look at the excitement!
The Grapevine Vintage Railroad is just that. This was an old fashioned steam engine. The cars have no air conditioning…luckily it was beautiful outside! I cannot imagine riding this in the middle of the summer!

TicketsThe popcorn was yummy!
I love this shot I got of the trinity river with downtown behind it!Yes, I was letting my kid hang his head out of the window of a running train! Hey, he was bored! After about 20 minutes the coolness had worn off & he was ready to move on to something else. The total ride was about an hour. The last 30 minutes were SOOOOO long!
The “air conditioning”
And what would any fun day be without a ride on a carousel?
After the ride we ate in the stockyards then headed to the hospital one last time. We were all wiped out & ready for bed!!
Jax did great on the way home today too! He fell asleep about 20 minutes from home but woke up as soon as he saw his daddy!
Well if you’ve made it this far, I’m impressed!!
I hope you had a great weekend as well!
