23 GLORIOUS flavors!!!

Today, we went on a day trip to the Dr Pepper Museum in Waco with some friends. It was a special event where everything was free and there were games for the kids to play. It was a ton of fun, but very exhausting! Below are our pictures from the day!

We're on our way!


We're here!

If everyone knew my love for Dr Pepper......this was a sight to behold! :-)

First stop: Donut walk. Grayson chose a number real quick!

Dad decided to join in

I got a donut!

So did Dad!

Grayson and Jacob and their donuts

Griffin was having fun soaking it all in

Oh how we love the ChickfilA cow! He gave us coupons for free items and we took him up on his offer later! ;-)

Next stop: Fill up the bowl with ice using only your feet. Needless to say, the four year old didn't last long on this one!

Griffin still watching's a little bit of history: Grayson is sitting on the actual first counter that the first Dr Pepper was served from.

Here's some animatronic guy talking about Dr Pepper.

Look! Dr Pepper!

My favorite "old school" Dr Pepper can

This pic is blurry...but it's still cute of Grayson posing

Griffin LOVES Dr Pepper

Dave and the kids watching old Dr Pepper commercials

I think this is supposed to be an outstanding delivery man called "Foots". Weird name!

It may be a weird name, but I started loving "Foots" when I found out he went to The University of Alabama! ROLL TIDE!

Well, we learned a lot of interesting things today about Dr Pepper. First of all, there isn't a period after the Dr in Dr Pepper. Second, there is NOT prune juice in Dr Pepper. That's a myth. And finally, this place is one of the most visited places in Waco. Anyone want to guess what else people come to Waco for? Not to see the Baylor bears, my friends, but to go see where the Branch Davidians lived. NICE....

Griffin's first haircut and a Graysonism to close out the day

Today, I took Griffin to get his first haircut EVER!!! It was a big step for me. With the helmet, he had the cutest curls that came out of the side of it, but I figured since he didn't have the helmet anymore that he should get a little cut. So, today was the day, and I specifically took him to one of those special kids cutting places because I knew that he would be a squirmy worm and probably cry through it. Well, did he ever make a liar out of me! That little guy sat there so still and quiet. He loved every minute of it! He also got to sit in a fire engine and watch The Wiggles while it was happening, so that probably helped. Below are some pics of before, during, and after. AND......stay tuned to the Graysonism that we closed our day out with at the end of this post.

Now for today's Graysonism.....

After dinner tonight, we were in mine and Dave's bedroom just hanging out. Grayson wanted so badly to play tic-tac-toe with Dave on Dave's phone. Grayson takes the phone, and the conversation goes something like this:

Grayson: This is so fun. I am so blessed with all of y'all!
Dave: Awww....that's nice. Grayson, what does it mean to say that you are blessed?
Grayson: It means you're not gonna get arrested.

??????????? who knows
