Family Fun in Dallas (or as JJ says, "Dawas")

Lots of photos from our weekend trip to the Big D!  First stop on Saturday was Legoland Discovery Center in Grapevine.  It's located inside a shopping mall, which was kind of weird, but there was nothing wrong with this place as far as JJ was concerned!

Considering his plan of attack.

Building a tower on the shaking platform.

Doing the Merlin ride with Daddo.

This simple slide was one of his favorite parts of Legoland.

Cookie Monster twins!  Thanks to Aunt Jess, Uncle E and Jonah for JJ's new t-shirt! (And thanks again to Nana for my shirt.)  I think Daddo was embarrassed to be seen with us.

Foam Lego pit!

The boys.

Getting ready to see the 4D Lego movie.  JJ's first time at "the cinema".  He liked it (even wore the 3D glasses! should have gotten a picture of that), but we were glad the movie was only ~15 minutes.

Mixer truck made of Legos!!

Sunday morning we went to NRH20 Family Water Park.  I'm pretty sure this was JJ's favorite activity of the weekend (and it was definitely mine).  We want to go back again and stay longer.  We adults were bummed that we ran out of time to go on the adult water slides.  They were calling to us!

The first water you encounter when entering the park is this fountain.  JJ wasted no time.

Playing in the Tadpole (toddler) area.

 Frog slide!

A little kid's dream come true!!
(The big bucket at the top continually fills with water then dumps out onto unsuspecting park-goers.)

JJ tried some of the stuff on this giant structure.

Taking a break with Wesley-boo.

Snack time

JJ's first trip around the lazy river (he then went around again with Mom).

Final activity was the Tigers game on Sunday, which can be summed up in two words: hot & sweaty.  We didn't come close to staying for the whole game, but the Tigers lost anyway, so maybe it was for the best.

 Fire truck!

Until next time, Dallas!
