Dallas Trip - Six Flags

This is the last post from our Dallas mini-vacation. There are 3 posts below highlighting other activities. My friend from high school, Jen, who works fro Six Flags, graciously offered to give us tickets so we could enjoy the park while in town. We decided to go only for the late afternoon/evening since it was 100 degrees out. Make sure you check out the 3 part video at the end.
I do have to note... we 5 adults there to help us with the kids and right off the bat they all took off with Madison leaving Jason and me with the the other 6! Nice, right? Jenni was so awesome to stick around and help us out. I don't know how we would have managed it without here. She sat with our stuff while we rode rides with the kids, went on the rides with kids that needed a partner, got us drinks, and just helped in any way she could - what a blessing! She just popped in to say hi and spent the rest of the night there at the park with us.

Madi and Ally rode with Papa on the boat (rocket) that goes upside down - first ride of the day. Go girls! I was so proud.
Pip wanted to ride EVERYTHING. She cried every time we took her off a ride. She is precious.
The kids were really looking forward to the bumper cars...

Can't place this picture at the bottom for some reason - this was the crew that rode the old wooden roller coaster 3 times in a row at the end of the night...
Jen rode with Wilson on the roller coaster - what a pal - thanks Jen, you rock!
Daddy and his Pip watching the other kids on the Ferris wheel...
Is he just the cutest thing you've ever seen on a roller coaster?

Pip LOVED the swings although I was so scared she was going to climb out while she waited for the rife to start.
Pip was so glad to have ice water.
Absolutely hate this picture of me but how could I not post the one of me and Jen?!

Ready for the light parade...

Dallas Trip - the aquarium

This is the 3rd of 4 posts about our Dallas trip. Below this are the posts about swimming and dinner. This post is our time at the aquarium. I took so many pictures - let's get started...













Everyone was standing at different exhibits watching the fish on the other side of the glass when my mom noticed that Piper was standing at the window looking at the street and parking garage next door!

Dallas Trip - outside PF Changs

Instead of doing our Dallas trip in one long post I am doing 4 shorter posts - previously I posted about the pool, now I'm sharing pictures from after dinner.

After swimming we met Jack at his hotel and then went to PF Changs where we met mom and dad. It was a Father's Day surprise for my dad that Jack was with us - that was fun. We love PF Changs and my kids love to get pictures on one of the big horses after we eat - here are some shots from that night...







Dallas Trip - pool

We had a super fun time in Dallas though it was super quick. I took a gazillion pictures, so instead of doing one forever long post I am going to do 4 shorter posts... the pool, outside PF Changs, the aquarium and Six Flags.

Joby met us at the hotel and while we waited for Jack and my parents we hit the pool. My kids love to swim.
Carson thought he looked like a floating head in this picture - kinda funny...
Piper was putting her arm around Wilson while they sat on the ede of the hot tub - so cute!
