We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.

It's a SeaWorld after all!

This past weekend we went down to San Antonio and stayed with some friends (thanks Hamiltons!) We had a great time. We went to the Alamo...Danny is related to Davy Crockett
And then to the famous RiverWalk for some good Mexican food. The RiverWalk is a series of restaurants and shops lining a section of the Guadalupe River (I think that's the one!)

We also took a little boat ride along the river and learned a little about the history of the RiverWalk. It was very interesting. San Antonio is very beautiful.Then it was off to Sea World (yes, it was a very long day!) We had so much fun. We saw the dolphin and beluga whale show, the dog and cat (and pony, kangaroo, skunk, emu, duck and geese, etc.) show and the Shamu rocks Texas show. The kids (especially Jesse) loved to see the animal do all their tricks. We also saw the Penguins (Jesse's favorite) and some alligators and Jesse, Danny and Dylan enjoyed getting splashed by the Atlantis ride.

Schlitterbahn Fahrfegnugen!

After an uneventful 4th of July this year, (it rained and all the celebrations were "postponed" as if you can postpone the 4th!) we had a fabulous 7th of July (after all it is supposed to be a lucky day!) We went to Schlitterbahn water park in New Braunfels. If you have not heard of it, it is the #1 water park in the United States. It was so much fun. The kids had a blast and we did too.
It's been raining just about everyday for the past 4 weeks and today started out that way, but we decided to go anyway (we are running out of weekends and this was one thing that we really wanted to do.) Well, it turned out to be our lucky day. Just as we got to the park, it stopped raining and did not rain the rest of the day. The sun came out and it turned out to be a beautiful day. Here are some pics so you can see how much fun we had.

High above the city! Look at all those trees!

Don't I look pretty all wet!

Isn't he just the cutest little guy?!
