I was not a good photographer this weekend. So, I apologize in advance.
Jason and I had to go pick the kids up from their aunt and uncle's house this weekend. Jason and I had talked about wanting to stay the night in San Antonio, but decided we probably just couldn't afford it. We had put the idea off, until Friday. I was just convinced I wanted to go and at least get one night's vacation, since it was probably the only one we were going to get this summer. Well, my sister pulled through for us and got us a hotel room for free in Live Oak, which is north San Antonio! We were so excited.
We really wanted to take the kids to the Riverwalk, but I was told that the Cowboys had their training camp there this week and the Riverwalk would more than likely be very packed. Since this was the only "vacation" Jason and I would have, we opted to take the path of least resistance and decided to go out to eat and bowling instead. I did spring for a new dress (Target - just went all out. Ha ha). So, we went and ate at this seafood restaurant - it was awesome!
We weren't really sure about it when we walked in, you ordered at the counter and picked up your own food and we wanted a sit down place. But shortly after we arrived and were looking at the menu, at 5:45 pm, the line started forming out the door and quickly decided there must be something to this place. Boy, were we glad we stayed. Not only was it inexpensive, but the portions were very large and it was delicious!! Then, we decided to take the kids bowling.
(By the way, we were stopped at the light in this picture!!)
I have to say, something happened to Jordan on this trip because he came back a brand new kid. He was all grown up!! He got the food at the restaurant without being asked, helped pack and unpack the car, he even unhooked his sister from her carseat. Such a big kid. He was an absolute pleasure!!!
We hadn't really planned on bowling when we got dressed, so Soph and I were both wearing dresses with no socks. I had to buy some socks and all they had were adults. Sophia looked pretty cute in her too-big socks, bowling shoes, and a bright green bowling ball!
Avery is such a people person. She did GREAT the whole trip. We took her bowling for the first time, and she just sat in her stroller for a while, just looking at us and the people around us. We took her out and she played. That girl is a joy. She didn't cry, not ONCE the whole trip down there and the whole trip back. Just amazing.
The next morning, we woke up and ate a hotel breakfast. I love hotel breakfasts. There is just something about staying in a hotel that I LOVE. It made me really want to plan a real weekend vacation for Jason and I.
Have a great week everyone! T-Minus one week until I start my new job!
