San Antonio 2010

Posted: August 14, 2010 in Being Silly with Mom and Dad, Summer Time, Vacation, Weekend Activities

We wanted to get in one more mini vacation before school started so we all headed to San Antonio for a long weekend (August 6-8, 2010). Hubby took off work on a Friday so we drove to San Antonio and went to Sea World and played in the Lost Lagoon for the afternoon and then caught a couple shows in the evening. We had a great time playing in the water and since we were wet from the water park, we decided to sit in the ‘splash zone’ at the new Shamu Rocks Show. We sat in the 5th row from the tank and when I say we got soaked, that is an understatement! We were drowned in water. Salty cold water!!!! I am glad we did it once, now we will never have to do it again. I don’t think it was what any of us expected… was much worse! 
We went back to Sea World on Saturday to play at the water park some more and we truly had a blast. We walked around in our bathing suits and just got wet everywhere we could. We played in Shamu’s Happy Harbour and even stood on the bridge near Journey to Atlantis. Again, not what we expected….we got drenched! But it was so hot outside, it was perfect! We stayed on the bridge for about 10 rides to hose us. Z loved every minute of it! After a full day of water slides and fun, we went back to the hotel and got showered and went to dinner. We had a great day! 
On Sunday, we went to IHOP for a nice breakfast and then went to the Children’s Museum in San Antonio. We have season passes so we wanted to go while we were already in San Antonio. We always have a nice time at that museum and this time Z got to dig for gems at the Diamond Dell exhibit. He loved that part! After a full day at the museum, we stopped at Texas Roadhouse on the way home for some nice steaks. What a great family weekend!
