This year for spring break we decided to take a little mini vacation to San Antonio. I had to post our trip in 3 different blog posts. Ever since Abigail saw the movie Dolphin Tale, she has been obsessed with dolphins & whales. She's also seen all the Free Willy movies. So to Abigail all whales are named Willy, not Shamu. James & I thought it would be fun to take her to Sea World while it's not 100 degrees outside. Abigail had also been talking about going to Sea World for a few months now, so she was so excited!

We spent one day just relaxing & enjoying the beautiful weather. We went to a park in San Antonio right by the zoo where they had a train. We walked around the park for a little bit & road the train. The weather could not have been more perfect. Then, we enjoyed the pool & lazy river at our hotel. The pools were heated for spring break.

On our way home from San Antonio, we stopped at the Wildlife Ranch. It's a drive through African Safari in the Texas hill country. We were able to buy some food to feed the animals along the way. I have been wanting to go for a few years now, but we just never had the time & it was always the opposite direction from where we were going. So, this time we decided to make a little detour to check it out. It was worth the time & money. We got to see lots of cool animals up really close & the hill country view was amazing.

We took the kids to the Livestock Show & Rodeo a little over a week ago! We'v always just gone to the Livestock show, but I thought Abigail would really enjoy the Rodeo part. So, I bought tickets to a Sunday show because they start at 3:45. I knew the tickets weren't close, but didn't realize how bad they were until we got there. Thankfully, I had borrowed my sister's double stroller otherwise James would have been carrying Abigail most of the time. However, pushing a double stroller up the ramp back & forth all the way up Reliant Stadium was not fun at all! We had tickets in the nose bleed section! Abigail did enjoy watching the rodeo, but she got pretty bored after a while. Abigail liked watching the calf scramble & the barrel racing. The group singing was some teeny bopper group I had never heard of before. We let Abigail listen to 2 songs & we left to go to the Livestock show. Abigail rode the ponies & a few other rides before it started getting dark. By time we got inside, the Livestock show was winding down for the day, so there wasn't much to see. We had a good time, but definitely learned our lesson that our kids are not old enough for the whole Livestock show & Rodeo. So, next year we'll just stick with taking them to the Livestock Show only! I did figure out where the horse shows our located, so we'll have to check that out too next year!
