The Happy Harris House visits

We had a house full of fun over the weekend. The Happy Harris House descended on Thursday afternoon for a trip to Sea World.

Amy, was my college roommate, and she and Brian were the only friends in attendance at our wedding. They have two kiddos, Mason (who made sure we knew he was FOUR!) and Maya who is just a few months younger than Maddie. Needless to say, we were BUSY. We often felt out numbered by all the little monkeys. I wondered why that was because there was one adult per kid, but somehow they manged to run circles around us.

Maddie had fun playing with Mason, and she flirted with him the entire weekend. Mason and Maya were super sweet with Brooke, and kept her occupied and laughing all weekend.

We went to Sea World on Friday!
It was lots of fun, and everyone did fairly well in the heat. It was only supposed to be 82 degrees, but it climbed to 92 with 95% humidity....that means it felt like it was over 100 degrees. Everyone enjoyed the Shamu show, where I got a little weepy again, and had fun feeding the dolphins.By the way, only a real man can carry a Dora The Explorer hot pink back pack all day long and still look as cool as Brian.

On Friday night, we mustered the energy (and the courage to take four kids) to go out to dinner. We sat outside where there was a live band, which was enjoyed by the kids, as was the playground at the restaurant.




Looking a little tired after a day at Sea World and the playground!

They were SO dirty, and we threw them all in the bath together.
This weekend I learned that it is nearly impossible to get three kids to smile, stand still, and look in the same direction all at the same time. I have 20 other pictures that look just like this:




Saturday morning was spent swimming at the pool. Amy and Brian were on a mission to tire out their kids prior to the drive back home to Dallas.

We are so happy to be back in Texas were we get to see our friends and family on a regular basis. SO HAPPY.
