Going south...yeah right.

So since my husband is a very driven individual especially when it come to his job, it is hard for me to get him to take "EXTRA" time off. What made it easy this time was that he has already made his goal for the year (YEP 7 MONTHS EARLY)! So we planned a trip to San Antonio for Spring Break. We were so looking forward to warmer weather...since it had snowed several inches the last week in Feb. So we (I) packed for three boys, a husband and myself and only managed to forget shaving cream, oh and WINTER CLOTHES. You would think that after being a resident of the great state of Texas for almost 7 years that I would know better than to rely on the weather forecast. Yep the day before we left the week looked perfect in the upper 70's lower 80's with overcast skies some days. With weather like that what is the sense in packing extra clothes that won't get used....mmmm

The boys did okay on the trip down there...with Luke napping a total of 1 1/2 hours on the 12 hour journey! YIKES....the last hour to two hours were HARD. Doing anything and everything to entertain.

Finally we made it all in one piece. The first three days of the trip were beautiful outside weather. We played at the park quite a bit, and did a lot of shopping outdoors.

The last two days of the week were very cold and we thanks to me froze our butts off. We had to break down and buy sweatshirts and pants. Man what a terrible mother I am. HA Anyway we had a great time and enjoyed visiting our church and old friends. We always feel like we are HOME when we go back to First Baptist Church San Antonio and so miss all the friendly faces. Can't wait to get back June!
