Since I had taken Jane Anne for a special mom/daughter weekend in October, it was Molly’s turn. Molly has a very different personality than her sister — she doesn’t love to travel (but insisted on getting out of town), doesn’t love to shop, and is hard to eat out with (her food repertoire isn’t much wider than mac and cheese, pizza, and french fries) — so I wanted to make her trip about things she would really love.
We started the day with lunch at Brio. (Pizza for her. Eggplant parmesan for mom.) Then we spent a while in the kids section of Barnes and Noble reading Christmas stories.
We stayed at the Gaylord Texan so we could enjoy all the decorations and do ICE. We enjoyed wandering around the hotel, looking at all the decorations, and she loved ICE. She slid down the ice slide over and over and over and over and over, until Mom was too cold to stay in there anymore.
The next day was a gorgeous, sunny, 70 degree day, so after a leisurely morning at the hotel and Five Guys for lunch (Fries for her. Burger for mom.), we headed to the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens. It was a perfect way to spend the end of our trip. We wandered the interpretive trail, reading the signs, jumping from log to log, eating goldfish and just enjoying being outside with no plan.
I sure do love this girl! And I love the ways that she is uniquely Molly!
