It had been SO long since our last trip to San Antonio. Lyla has never been the greatest traveler and so that was our excuse. Finally we decided to break down and go. We chose to fly over driving because a 9 hour car trip with Lyla would have been a disaster! Flying was ok the first leg, but the second resulted in a major meltdown during take off and there wasn't much I could do because I had to stay in my seat. Lyla prefers to be held standing up, but that just wasn't an option. She screamed for about 10 minutes and then we were able to turn baby einstein on and she was fine. Tessa did great and can't wait to fly again in July!
We did so many fun things in San Antonio. We got to spend a lot of quality time with Noni and Poppa and Mimi and Pa Pa. The girls loved getting to spend so much time with them :) We spent Memorial Day at the pool which was fun to get see a lot of family friends. We also went to Kiddie park which I used to go to when I was little. Tessa had a blast riding all of the rides. Lyla only got to ride the carousel, but had fun digging in the dirt... she was filthy when we left! Josh and I got to go on a yummy date to Paesano's and shopping at La Cantera and Tessa got to go to her second cousin Abby's birthday party.
Aside from seeing family, our favorite was probably Sea World...we totally loved it! Lyla spent the day with Mimi and so just the three of us went. They have an awesome new sesame street kid's area with lots of neat rides and a great big splash park/playground. All of the shows were really fun too! One of our favorite parts was petting the dolphins. They came really close to us and one even spit water in Tessa's face! The sea lions were really funny to watch too and Tessa loved watching Daddy feed the birds! Sea World was a lot of fun and we can't wait to go back!
We had such a fun family trip home and we can't wait for our next trip home!!
