Chapman Christmas Vacation - Texas Edition

Last month we packed up the troops and took them on a 2 week tour that included 2 states, 2 climates, 2 new teeth and at least 2 days of questioning why we'd ever booked the trip to begin with.  ;)

We started out in Fort Worth, TX to celebrate Auntie Kate graduating from TCU with her nursing degree!  The long weekend in TX was jam packed with celebrations and ceremonies.  Lyla's description of it sounds something like this: "it was all hurry up and go here and hurry up and rest and hurry up for dinner!  There was LITERALLY only ONE day for relaxing!!!"

They really did have to put up with a lot of grown up events, and they did pretty darn well all things considered.  The last day we got to spend a really fun, low key day at the Stock Yards before heading to the airport and Denver.  The girls loved it, and Lyla was even considering becoming a Horned Frog herself!  :)

To our Auntie Kate - we know how hard you worked over the last 4 (1/2) years and we're so proud of you!!  You deserve every bit of your success, and you're going to be the best nurse out there!  So glad we could be there to celebrate with you.  XO

Here are some pics!

Had to take them to their first In-N-Out!

The first night was the grad party for Kate and her nursing besties.

Prepping for the pinning ceremony!  If this isn't the most handsome thing you've ever seen, I don't know what is.

This is my most favorite candid of all times.  Sis was not handling her skipped nap well, and Ryan and I were clearly not amused.  Look at that snarl on Ryan's lips.  Ha!

Post pinning ceremony / pre dinner nap time.  Teething had this guy not wanting to sleep anywhere but in my arms.  Which I kind of loved.

Loving on Great Grandma at dinner!

Bouncing our babies.  :)

The whole fam!

Sleeping on Grammy during the entire graduation ceremony.  So rude.  ;)

The graduate!!

Watching the cattle drive in the Stock Yards.

Had to stop for some real BBQ.  It did not disappoint!

Future Horned Frog right there!  :)

Evie couldn't stop singing Jingle Bells and Santa Clause is Coming to Town and Mrs. Clause was smitten.  She lead us to this Texan Santa and they had to get a pic.  :)
