San Antonio is just a few hours from our home so it is perfect for a weekend getaway. Initially the SeaWorld Texas media event where we went on a Penguin Tour and enjoyed the Christmas Celebration was our reason to visit, but we made a long weekend out of it and enjoyed other San Antonio attractions as well.
Being the theme park lovers that we are we headed to Fiesta Texas the next day, but the park didn’t open until 2:00 so we slept in a little and enjoyed the complimentary breakfast at Comfort Inn & Suites. I think this was our first stay at Comfort Inn & Suites and we loved it. After breakfast we had the entire indoor heated pool to ourselves. We had so much fun swimming!

The weather was perfect for a day at Six Flags. It was chilly, but not too cold. Most rides only had a short wait so even though the park opened at 2:00 the kids still felt like they rode lots of rides.
This little guy is the only one left not tall enough for the high thrill rides. He and I were pals. It was a great day at the park.
Two nights. That’s how long this road trip was. Surely this would be the trip we would make it home without someone throwing up right? NOPE! Me. It was me again. I woke up in the middle of the night sick. There I was in our nice Comfort Inn Suite sick as can be, and I found myself thinking, “I’m so thankful it’s me and not one of the kids who doesn’t have the sense to make it to the bathroom.” Did I just say I was thankful to be throwing up? It struck me kind of funny. I can now cross throwing up and laughing at the same time off my list. Did that! Ha ha.
To my own thoughts my prayer sounded very sanctimonious even though I didn’t mean it to be at all. I really was just trying to look on the bright side of a bad situation. The funny thing to me is that in the everyday things like packing for a trip, cleaning the house, or trying to get the kids to do their school work I can crab with the best of them. I get nervous, stressed out and go kind of crazy. Scary Mommy! I have no idea how my family lives with me. But in the worst of times I seem to do the right thing. Go figure. If only I could train myself to be thankful and look on the bright side in all the everyday stresses of life. That is the goal.
Anyway, I was able to go back to sleep and woke up in the morning feeling okay just extra tired. Still we were able to fit in one more fun destination before heading back home…
