Its been a while since I blogged...last time was about the idiot who hit me with his car in the parking lot....anyways....there are happier things to report so I thought I would come and share.
Madison was on Spring Break last week so we suprised her with a trip to San Antonio for a few days. She loves that place..I think its more of the hotel she loves than anything. That girl loves to stay in hotels. Anyways we left on Thursday and made the drive in. The kids did pretty good on the car ride since they had DVD's to watch. We just kinda stuck around the hotel that night..swam in the "heated" pool...it wasnt too heated, still pretty cold when we got out...ordered Texas Land and Cattle to go and ate in our rooms before turning in for the night. Friday was the big day...we got up and headed to Sea World...Madison really had no idea what Sea World was...but when we got there she was so excited and ready to run around! First thing we did was go feed the dolphins. We beat the crowd for this and got a pretty good spot along the tank. Danny got inline and got us some stinky fish to bring the dolphins close to us. Madison was terrified the dolphins were going to bite her hand off for that little fish so she was tossing the fish into the dolphins mouth and not even getting close enough to pet it...I tried to show her that he would not bite her..but she was just content with seeing one up close. Next we walked across the park and went to the shamu show...it was great...Ive always loved marine life...well except for Sharks! LOL After the show we had lunch, let Madison and Christopher play at the little Shamu place they had for kids...Madison and Danny rode a ride or two then we saw the penguins and then the last show for the day...it was pretty neat..more people diving around than animals...but still pretty cool. Once we got back to the hotel we all got ready to go eat on the Riverwalk. I wanted to eat at our usual place, Casa Rio...but by the time we got there it was a hour wait and they were not even taking names for the list anymore it was so long...so we walked and tried out a new place called Rio Rio....HORRIBLE! It took forever to get our food, the kids were hungry and tired and it was expensive!! We could of eaten at Casa Rio twice at the price of this place! So note to self, never eat at Rio Rio again! ;) We headed home Saturday, we were going to go to the zoo but we were suppose to have our new fridge delivered so we headed home since they wanted to deliver it "early".
So San Antonio was a good little trip for us. The kids had fun and thats really all that matters right?!
The week after Spring Break is always exhausting and stressful b/c you are always so tired from SB and trying to play catch up. For me its catching up on the laundry and cleaning...and no Im still not done!
I thought it really sucked that Easter was the weekend of Spring Break for us...but we had a pretty good easter...the kids loved what the easter bunny left them and loved hunting eggs even more...we ran a few errands but really stayed outside 90% of the day....unfortunately the kids allergies paid for it in a big way come the week. Christopher ended up with wheezing from it and needed breathing treatments all week, had a ear infection...and Madisons throat is so raw from the drainage its not even funny...no one is sleeping this week..its just a mess around here.
Anyways, I thought I would come update you guys on whats gone on with us....hope you enjoyed! ;)
Oh and dont worry, Im still learning this blogging thing and my next thing to learn is how to post pictures so be on the look out.
