San Antonio

We took a little family vacation to San Antonio a few weeks ago. We had a great time and enjoyed the get-away. I've been working like crazy lately so it was a much needed vacation for me.
Are we there yet?!?
Abigail did very well on the 6 hour ride there and back. She was a little fussy until we got to the Texas state line but then she napped most of the way there. We stopped at a Buckie's in Luling, TX and we could have just gone there for vactation and she would have been happy. She had so much fun in that convinence store. Its really just a HUGE gas station but they had a gift shop and Tommy was excited about the thousands of drink flavors they had. It really was an experience.

Being silly in the hotel room!
The first night there we just walked around the riverwalk and relaxed. The next morning we headed to SeaWorld! We had a two day pass so we were able to enjoy the park and the waterpark.

Wake up San Antonio! - 6:30 AM

Riding the carousel in the Bay of Play. She had so much on that carousel. She was waving and blowing kisses and clapping! So adorable.

Picture with Cookie Monster. I thought she may be scared but she was fearless. She gave him high five and was actually holding his hand in this picture

Waiting to ride the carousel again. So excited


Giving high fives to Bert and Ernie! Again, she was fearless. She walked right up to them and gave them kisses.

More high fives

Watching a 4D Seseame Street movie. Her glasses didn't last long!

Feeding the ducks!

Waiting for the Shamu show. She wanted to run around and play not sit and wait. But as soon as Shamu came out she calmed down.

I'm not sure what was more interesting...the girls hair or the whale.

In the Sesame Street portion of SeaWorld there was a little water park from toddlers. It was perfect for Abigail. They had little fountains and LOTS of sprinklers. She had a blast!

And lots of valve handles to turn. She had to go to each one and turn it.

"Follow me daddy! I'll show you. "

Running through the sprinklers with daddy! You can tell by the smile on her face that she was having a blast!

Almost nap time

Later that afternoon we went to Hemisfair park near the riverwalk. There was a cool little play ground that Abigail (and daddy) loved exploring.

That night we went to the Rainforest Cafe on the riverwalk. The food was actually better than I expected. We were going more for the experience but their burgers are pretty excellent.

This is probably my favorite picture from the entire trip. She was being a little ham and loving on daddy the whole night. She kept leaning over and giving him kisses. Such a little Daddy's girl!
The next day we went back to SeaWorld and Abigail got to feed the dolphins. She was pretty interested in them and liked THROWING the fish at them rather than in their mouths.
This is the best picture I was able to get. They all came out blurry for some reason. Watching all the fish and sharks swim around.

"Come see Mr. Fishy Fishy"

Riding the carousel with Daddy this time.

Then she had to ride one last time with mommy.
Our last day there we went to the zoo. It was HOT! There was very little breeze so went through the zoo quickly and then went back to the hotel to take a nap.

"Come see Mr. Chicken"

Waving bye-bye to the elephants.

That afternoon we headed to the Alamo and did a little sight seeing then relaxed the rest of the night and walked around the rivercenter mall. We had a great vacation and will definately have to go back once the kids are older so we can visit Schliterbahn!
