Memorial Day Trip to San Antonio
Over Memorial day weekend we drove to San Antonio to visit Daniel (Stan's brother who is in training there). We had such a wonderful trip! The girls were SO good. It is a 10 hour drive so we weren't sure how our littles (3 and 5 yrs) would do. We decided to go ahead and buy a portable dvd player for the car. Stan and I had both said in the past that we would NOT have a dvd player in the car because we wanted them to look out the windows and watch the landscape just like when we were kids. But, we found out that watching the scenery leads to throwing-up (at least for our kids) and so we ditched that and bought the player in hopes of making the trip smoother. SUCCESS!
We stayed on base in Temporary Housing (kind of like a hotel) and only paid $40.00 per night. Also, we were able to visit Sea World for FREE because of their nationwide "Here's to the Heros" promo that they extended through 2010. Normally tickets are nearly $60.00 for adults and $50.00 for children. We ate icecream, rode on rides, and watched Shamu of course!
What a fun Family Vacation
