Dallas Weekend

Food Network, yummy homemade pesto pasta, Grimaldi's Pizza, great shopping, Sprinkles Cupcakes, REAL Italian gelato, and lots and lots of girl talk. Does that sound like a good time or what? That's what I did last weekend on a quick trip to Dallas to visit my twin sister, Rachel and her family. Whenever Rachel and I get to get together it's bound to be good times and this trip was no different. We had such a nice, relaxing, catch-up weekend.


Sheree, my roomate Freshman year at BYU, whom I haven't seen in like 5 years now lives right up the street from Rachel. Small world... She had us over for lunch and it was so fun to meet her cute kids and have a long-since-overdue catch-up.

My brother-in-law, Brian takes AMAZING pictures and this was one of my faves from the weekend. This is Rachel's girl, Kate. She's such a cutie!

One night we went to a concert at this neat outdoor mall before we ate at the famous Grimaldi's Pizza. This is Rachel's new little one, Lauren. She's 10 weeks older than Amelia and they loved exchanging smiles the whole weekend and were even caught holding hands a couple of times.

Sweet little Taylor (Rachel's 2nd) giving me a kiss on the cheek. I loved spending time with Rachel's girls- they are so sweet!

And here's "Double Trouble", as they used to call us on our high school soccer team. Our two baby girls might be following in our footsteps...

PS- You should know that I pilfered these pics off Sheree and Rachel's blogs since Christian had the camera for a boys camping trip that same weekend to Pagosa Springs, CO (more to come...). If you'd like to see more of Brian's photography, go here.

Cute pics. I don't think hose two will ever be like the double trouble you guys were. I don't know Amelia's personality...but that Lauren wouldn't harm a fly. She is sooo sweet.
