San Antonio Trip!

We had the great opportunity to go to San Antonio, TX for a whole week! It was so much fun! We got to go visit my sister and her family. We flew there and it was Mayli's and Madilyn's 1st flight. The kids did pretty good on the flights. It was snowing in Denver (where our connection was) and we had to wait an hour for them to de-ice the plane....it took forever! But we were glad that they were making sure everything was ok to fly safely. Here are a few pictures of the flights to Texas.

Mom, Maddie, and Kate

The 4 girls got to sleep in the same room! They were so excited!

Monday the 20th of April we went to this fun place called Minitown. They have so many fun things for the kids to do. There was a beauty shop, a movie theater, a 'grocery store', a bank, a house, a disco dancing room, and so many other fun things. All of the places were perfect for kids to play with. They even had little dress-ups for the girls to put on in the beauty shop. Here are some more pictures.

There was a park and play place to play on...Madilyn loved to ride the horse

It was so warm there and the girls go to swim! They had so much fun with each other!

On Thursday April 23rd we got to go to Sea World. We had so much fun! I was amazed at what they could teach the animals to do! I loved it! The girls had lots of fun too! Here are some more pictures!

The family with Shamu

The Believe show with Shamu was my favorite show! It was so cool to see these amazing animals do such amazing things. I thought the show was inspiring and so much fun!

This is the part where the killer whales splash everyone...you get soaked if you are in the 'splash zone'.

This is a video of part of the Shamu show.

All 5 of us at the Believe show...Mike's always got a great face! :)

My favorite part was feeding the dolphins. It was so cool! We got to feed them and pet them! They feel so cool! I had so much fun! These animals are amazing! :)

We had a great time! We did lots more fun things. The best was just relaxing and talking with each other. We got to play lots of games and just spend time with one another. It was so much fun! :)
