One of the crazy things about our life, dealt with on a daily basis, is our work schedules. Hubs and I are both in health care and both have bizarre schedules that make those around us scratch their heads...it works for us, so we do it! One of the coolest things about our schedules is that it allows both of us to be home, more that normal, and together as a family! Occasionally, it allows us to be spontaneous.
Thurs, (after ACE received a "faux-hawk" from his talented aunt), Hubs announced "Everybody get dressed...we're getting out of here!" So we did, and off to the Dallas World Aquarium we went. We had a wonderful time, and the kids were great listeners and had a blast! My mom laughed later when Bug was filling her in on all of the cool stuff at the "Zooquarium". I can see why there might have be some confusion...it's called and Aquarium, but seemed more like a zoo...we saw penguins (ACE was disappointed that they didn't tap dance), monkeys, a 3 toed sloth, tons of birds...you know, zoo stuff!
All in all, just a great day!
Hubs and I topped it of with date night (we had already scheduled a sitter) complete with the ever-so-romantic swing by Wally World for some basic household necessities! Oh the romance of being "old and married"!
A great day, that, if we were bogged down M-F 8-5 would have been impossible!
And now...for the pics!
