To Six Flags We Go!

Unfortunately the cold weather rolled in right at Christmas and stayed through our time in San Antonio, which left us a little more confined to what we wanted to do. Thursday morning Mike and I were able to go do a session at the temple with Brittany and his mom and the kids got a special lunch trip to McDonalds with Papa. We hung out that afternoon, ate the spot-on Cafe Rio pork salads we love, and then Mike and I took an impromptu mini-vacation and left the kiddos with Meema and Papa that night. All the late nighters leading up to Christmas with kids who continued getting up early was catching up to us and it was so nice to sleep in and relax into the late morning. After some brunch at Egg and I we returned to our crazies, who were just getting back from an outdoor adventure walk with Papa. Friday was by far going to be the warmest day of our stay, so even though the rest of the bunch was in the midst of projects, our family decided to head over to Six Flags for one last time in 2012. Unfortunately, everyone else in San Antonio had our same brilliant idea so it was more crowded than we prefer. We also missed the "snow" somehow, BUT we still had a great time and went on lots of kid rides. We left just as it was getting freezing and were happy to get back to the warmth of Meema and Papa's (and Brittany's house where we stayed...right across the street)!

The girls were excited to go on this roller coaster with Mike, but we had just waited in line an hour for the Scooby Doo ride and they ended up coming back because of another long line here. The tea-cups though....no line!
