Weekend Fun | Rangers Game + Wildflower Festival

Last weekend was packed with activities, including a "Front Yard Friday" party hosted by our neighbors and Ava's weekly swimming class on Saturday morning. 

But the fun really began with a trip to see the Rangers on Saturday night. Luckily, Ava took a great nap after swimming, so we weren't concerned about her staying up (way) past her bedtime. 

The weather could not have been more perfect, our seats were great, and despite the Rangers' loss, it was such a wonderful night at the ballpark. 

Ava loved helping open Daddy's peanuts (but didn't want to eat any). 

But the helmet ice cream was clearly her favorite part of the game. 

 After a relaxing Sunday morning, we met up with the Lockwoods at the Wildflower Festival in Richardson. It was our first time to attend the festival, so we didn't quite know what to expect, but it turned out to be such a fun outing. 

The bands were better on Friday and Saturday, but we chose to attend on Sunday due to the half-price adult tickets and free entry for kids under 12. We spent most of the time in the "Kids Korner" section of the festival, which had all kinds of fun activities, including…

A petting zoo. 

Ballon animals and face/body painting.


A karaoke station, with "Happy" and "Let It Go" on repeat throughout the evening, that the kids loved dancing/running around to.

And a butterfly tent, which was clearly Kate's favorite part. 

We also enjoyed all the classic, and extremely unhealthy, festival food (but corny dogs two nights in a row was probably a bad idea for this pregnant lady…talk about heartburn!). The weather was fabulous, and the kids had such a great time. We will definitely be back!

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. I think that about sums it up.
