After two trips I think the kids might have become airport professionals. They have it down. Pull your own suitcase, stay behind Mommy and in front of Daddy, get through security, get on the plane and then go pee all the time. They have been awesome. I couldn't be more proud of the way the kids have handled themselves at the airports and on the planes.
We just recently got back from another trip to San Antonio visiting my parents and the kids Nanny and Paw Paw. The trip there didn't start off that great after boarding and sitting on the plane for an extra 45 minutes due to overbooking. Why overbook a damn flight? Really!
Once in San Antonio, we had lots of fun. We saw the local Christmas parade and that was nice. They even had an animal parade. We went down to the Childrens Museum again and the RiverWalk. I love the RiverWalk. Ate some really great Mexican food down there. T did a little shopping in the local town and picked up some nice things.
The kids had a blast playing on my parents property which spans 13 acres. Just about most of it is still rough area so the kids love to go exploring. They call themselves Indiana Jones. Climbing trees, hiding in the bushes. We built a rope swing for them, used a wood plank for the seat. Only C4 fell off and that was better odds than T gave me..lol Maybe when we go back we will have a used tire by then for a tire swing. They also got a kick out of building houses and towns out of the scrap wood my dad has left over.
It was nice to see my Aunt Toni and Uncle Buzz again too. The kids also like seeing them. We all went and ate with my Grandma Barbara for her birthday, that was nice and I think she enjoyed it. Shes not doing great...Not too too bad, but not great. I think that dinner made her day.
My parents had the house all decked out for Christmas. Everything was out and the kids loved looking around and finding stuff to play with. My mom used to collect beanie bears and the kids love to go around and find new ones and play with them the entire time. Antique trains and cars get played with and the moved around..We laugh cause its like my mom and dad get to decorate all over again after we leave. My dad had an extra tree that went outside by the pool and the kids decorated that one. They loved doing that.
My parents are getting Peacocks so I helped my dad finish the Peacock Cage that they will stay in for a bit. We also fed the deer daily and waited to see them and the huge jack rabbits. That is always cool to see.
I think one of the cutest things was the whole time we were there, C4 made it a point to follow my mom and dad around (mostly my dad) and ask him a million and one questions. It was so funny. Question after question.
We did so much more from building a Gingerbread House and Train to playing Uno and just relaxing and watching some shows with my parents. It was a good time and it was nice to see them before Christmas this year. I know the kids had a blast and T and I had fun too.
Thanks for a great trip Mom and Dad and Nanny and Paw Paw.
