Day 1 & 2: San Antonio

Every other year for Christmas we get to go on a trip with Naggy, Pappy, Uncle Kevin and Aunt Megan.  This is our third trip.  The first trip we had was to New York when I was pregnant with Carli.  Two years ago we went to the Gaylord Texan and it was beautiful!  I was very much looking forward to our trip this year to San Antonio b/c the girls were going to be old enough to enjoy everything and sleep all night!  :) 
We left for San Antonio on Thursday morning.  We made a few stops along the way and got there in time for dinner with Naggy and Pappy.  We stayed at La Cantera and it was beautiful!  It had amazing views!

After we had dinner and got settled in we all went to bed.  The girls insisted on sleeping in Naggy and Pappy's room.  I didn't argue.  :)  I slept wonderfully!  God bless Naggy and Pappy!  We had an awesome breakfast the next morning at the hotel restaurant and then spent the morning exploring the hotel grounds.

Making faces with Pappy.

The girls favorite part of the hotel was the Kid's Zone.  It was a special room set up for the kids to come play and do little activities.  The whole family had a blast in there.  We visited at least twice a day! 

This place is probably crazy crowded during the summer months.  It is across the street from Fiesta Texas and they had some amazing, kid friendly pools.  Since it was 80 degrees one afternoon we let the girls talk us into a quick swim...in December, outside.  Yes, we are awesome parents!

The water slide was pretty awesome!  Keith and Ava went down the slide first.  Ava was not a fan!  :)  But she was a good sport.  Her sister wouldn't even try it!

The cool thing about these pools is that they weren't very deep and they all had a sloping walkway into the pool.  The girls LOVED it!

We swam for less than twenty minutes.  It was enough to make the girls happy and enough to make us all cold.  :)

Later that night after Uncle Kevin and Aunt Megan arrived we headed down to the river walk.  We ate some very yummy Mexican food and then took a boat tour of the river walk.  We had visited the river walk back in early May when we went to see Uncle Tone.  I prefer the boat tour over walking!  It was really neat, plus doing it at night with all the Christmas lights was pretty cool too! 

I had a hard time getting a picture at night with the new camera.  I have a lot to learn yet.  But this one picture I got pretty much sums up Carli's whole day:  Pure Awe! 

More to come...
