Texas trip

zoo56zoo54zoo29zoo15zoo9We headed to TX for a vacation after James being gone for a year. Since we missed our annual Thanksgiving day game, James thought being at the last game ever in Texas Stadium would be the next best thing. Some of our military family joined us from WA for a day at the Dallas Zoo and the game.

Macen was not a happy camper starting off our trip and then to be completely thrown off schedule with his sleep = not a pretty sight. We had several late nights and Macen didn’t adapt well. He was fantastic the 3 times we needed him to be – for both flights and at the game. The other times – steer clear of the toddler. He did have the freedom of running around at the zoo playing with Marti and giving Chris kisses.


As James mentioned the game did not go as wanted but we had a great time. Macen played for most of the game. He loved all the loud music, screaming and watching people. He fell sleep the last part of the 3rd quarter and slept the rest of the game.


We had bought tickets to see the ICE exhibit at the Gaylord Texan Resort and had planned on seeing all the Christmas activities they had going on. There was Mrs. Claus with live reindeer, a life size gingerbread house, etc. We got in line to get to the line to enter the exhibit and Macen was beyond hysterics. I have never seen him so miserable (Misty, he was worse than after the game if you can believe that). Needless to say there was no way we were going to take him into a confined space of 9 degrees with lots of other people. So we decided to leave and wouldn’t you know as we are winding thru the resort to get to the car, Macen is as happy as can be. So Macen, if you are reading this 15 yrs from now, you have heard this story hundreds of times and will probably hear it another hundred times. Thanks for making us throw away $40 😉 And just so you know, you didn’t get out of it – we’re taking you back next year. Love you little guy!
