Neil and Kaley Visit and St. Patty's Day Parade

Neil and Kaley were on Spring Break last week and spent a few days with us.  They came early Thursday and went to the Dallas Aquarium until I got back into town.  I have been wanting crawfish and thankfully they were up for it too so we went to eat crawfish Thursday night.  

Brett had to miss out on the Thursday night fun.  He was supposed to come home but instead got to spend his 2nd night (or hours) in a row on a couch at the hospital because they had a surgery go until 3am that night.  

 After crawfish Neil decided we needed some frozen yogurt so we went to Yumilicious. He got the largest cup available and filled it up! 

I had to work Friday morning so they went to the zoo until  I was done.  Then we went to the Arboretum that afternoon.

The feature at the Arboretum is tulips right now.  There are thousands and they are so pretty.

We had to go to the Apple store later that afternoon and were early for our appointment so guess what is next door-  Wild About Harry's!  At Neil's request (not mine for once) we had to get some frozen custard.  Neil and I  decided the love for ice cream must be genetic because we both could it multiple times a day and never get tired of it!
Neil went overboard again with the largest serving possible!

Friday was Neil's 20th birthday which I can hardly believe!
He wanted to go to Dave and Buster's.  We had a blast. 

Kaley and I couldn't stop playing a game where you drop coins into a big pile of coins and try to push them over edge for tickets.  She hit the jackpot and that was so much fun!!

Saturday morning Neil and Brett went in the jeep to pick up breakfast tacos.

Neil and Kaley had to head home Saturday morning so they missed out on the parade fun.

Green and people everywhere!
"The Green Dog"
People were hilarious about Dot.  She was a hit.  Probably 50 people commented on the green dog.  I colored her with food coloring.  
Every year several miles of Greenville gets blocked off for the parade and all of the bars and restaurants have green beer and food and people have block parties and house parties.  It is crazy but lots of fun.  

After the parade we walked back down Greenville to 2 different house parties.  
Here are the dogs at the 2nd party.  We probably walked 4-5 miles that day and they were totally exhausted.   

We met up with Nelson and Winston at the 2nd party.
It was a long but fun day!


  1. What a fun weekend! I miss Yumilicious, that place is so good. The Arboretum is so's hard to imagine anything outside of these frigid Louisville temps right now. It is so still winter right now. Neil is such a handsome young man now! I can't believe you still color Dot can tell by her face that she loves the attention. And I love those green cute!

  2. So cute! What a fun weekend! I'll be in Dallas in a couple weeks and we're going to the Arboretum. It looks gorgeous right now!
