A few weeks ago, we decided to plan a last minute family vacation. Since our summer schedule was already so busy, we had to piggy back this little vaca onto one that had already been planned, my annual family reunion. Since we would be driving down 35 anyway to New Braunfels for the reunion, we decided to take a little detour and go to San Antonio first to spend a couple of days at Sea World!
We had SO much fun. While it was really a short trip, just two days, it was jam packed with smiles and making wonderful memories as a family. I can't wait for all the other vacations we will take together as a family in the future. The kids did so well and were very flexible with their schedules. Cory and I were so tickled with them when we first arrived at our hotel around 10:00 Monday night. Just like you would expect a 4 year old to be, Christopher was wide awake and filled with excitement and energy at the thought of being in the hotel. Miss Lucy was right there with him, as they bounced around on the bed and giggled late into the night - so cute!
Our time at Sea World was wonderful. We fed and pet the dolphins, rode the Log Ride (all 4 of us), played in the water, and of course saw Shamu. Christopher loved everything we did. Lucy did too, except for the fake Shamu and fake Dolphin characters that were walking around the front gate, they brought on tears of terror. Unlike the real dolphins, that she actively tried to reach out and pet several times.
Our friends, the Braatens, were down there too staying in our same hotel. We met up with them at Sea World the first day, and enjoyed great pool time, dinner, and s'mores by the fire that night.
It was a wonderful start to our week filled with family fun!
