Waste the time and money to see alie we've seen a thousand times, it was truly a treat.
The drive to Arlington was filled with hilarious moments...Hallie talked non-stop. No joke.
Here's a glimpse of the one-sided conversation...
What town are we in? That's a funny name. What city does Nonna and Pop live in? Oh. Heflin. That's a funny name, too. And Abby and HG? Birmingham? Yeah...that's funny too. Why are all the names funny except ours (Waco)? Oh wow! Look at that building. It's at least 43 inches...inches. Inch. Have I mentioned about an inch worm before? Because I've seen one. Mommy? Have you ever been stinged by a queen bee? No? Me either. Mommy, who madeTexas? (I don't even have time to answer.) Whoever made Texas...I love those guys. And I love my house. And water. Do you want me to sing you a song? Are we still in Texas?
Me: Let's play the quiet game. :o)
That girl has some thoughts. Let me tell you. And one thought leads to another. And so on. And on. ...and on. On the way back, she put on a little "play" of manners. I wish I could have videoed it. It was hilarious.
Princess Hallie was invited to supper. She said thank you. Saying thank you is using manners. And that is the end of our video. Next video...Princess Hallie said Can you please pass me the salt? Thank you. Did you hear those manners? Please? Thank you? Those are both good manners. And that is the end of our video.
I seriously could not make this stuff up.
At the mall, we both sat glued to the big screen the movie was gorgeous. And I noticed things I had never noticed before. Afterward, we grabbed some lunch, bought a wrist band for the carousel ($2 for one ride or $5 for an all day band) and Hal rode the carousel probably 15 times! We did a little browsing and headed home. We stopped at the very sad Hillsboro outlet mall on the way back...snagged a few good deals and then made it home in time for supper.
Harper and Daddy had a fun day together. And Hallie and I had some much needed mommy-big girl time!
We *finally* made it to the movie!
Fun in the theater!
Hallie begged me to ride with her. This was before. My face was surely a lovely shade of green afterward. I'm far too old
for the carousel! Haha!
We hit some pretty heavy rain on the way home. And then the sun burst through the clouds and we got this! Hallie sweetly said, "I know that a rainbow is a promise from God...He will never flood the earth again" Sweet words.
I can't wait for our next girls day. Until then...my ears will be resting. :o)
