We went on a little family get away the weekend before she started her radiation treatments (I am just now getting to it, I have a lot of pictures I want to put up, its just hard to find time). We wanted Jaylie to have a blast and wanted to create fun and happy memories that she would hopefully remember for a long time. A huge thank you to Jess, Bryan, and Chris for helping us do this. Ya’ll are awesome and we will forever be grateful.
We had a blast! It was so nice to just feel like a normal family and put all of this out of our minds for a couple days. The kids had so much fun and so did we. We went to Sea World on our first day. The kids had not been in 2 years, so they were super excited. It was so great to see their faces light up during the shows and when they would see the animals. I love Sea World, always have. It was awesome. It was hot but there was a breeze so it wasn't too bad and it was not crowded at all! After Sea World, we headed to our hotel. We stayed at the JW Marriott resort in San Antonio. It is amazing! I highly recommend it. Jaylie said on our last day that she wished it was our home and that she could live there forever. They have an awesome pool with a huge lazy river and water slides. They always had different fun activities going on, like balloon artists, animal shows, magic shows, movies by the pool at night, smores at night, crafts for the kids, they had a rubber duck race in the lazy river, and lots more. Once we got to the hotel, we did not leave-it was too fun and there was too much going on! We saw a couple of our friends while we were there. The Woods visited us at the resort for a couple hours and then we stopped at The Wheelus’s house on the way back to Austin. It was so fun to see them. On monday, Memorial Day, we went to Cheesecake Factory. Jaylie had been asking to go there for a while now, so we ended her special weekend with that.
It was hot, you can tell it in his cheek color :) By the way, this kid is a little angel, I'm so in love with him!
Watching the dolphin and whale show
Love this face
Feeding the dolphins. We had never done this before so it was really exciting. Jaylie was a little bit scared :)
Every time I tried to take a picture of Breklyn, she would do this face and kind of turn away. Shes going through a stage right now that unless it is her idea she doesn't want her picture taken. Shes so funny.
Showing the camera her penny from the penguin exhibit.
Hiding from the camera again
Crew laughing during a show
The kids loved the show
They had a rubber duck race at the resort. All the kids decorated their rubber duck with colored sharpies and then they put them in the lazy river to race.
Breklyn and Jaylie with Calvin and Tillie (our friends kids)
Loved this picture of them laughing together
The kids loved this butterfly, it was so big!
Jaylie and Breklyn watching the animal show. They had some neat animals that you don't see very much.
Crew sleeping during the animal show. Most of the pictures I have of him, he is asleep in the stroller. He is such a good baby.
Swimming in the pool with Dad
Asleep at the pool
Jaylie having fun in the pool
The girls with their balloons the balloon artist made them. Jaylie got a unicorn and Breklyn a flower. They loved them.
Crew sleeping at dinner. Crew slept in the stroller a lot this trip. We were never in a room to let him nap in a crib. He was a trooper.
There were a few different restaurants at the resort. One of them does the dinner outside on tables. We went and it was really fun. It was good barbeque. They had a country music band playing and had this longhorn there for people to get on and take pictures. The girls had fun dancing to the music and seeing the longhorn. Breklyn was so scared, she would not even get near it.
Pictures from our dinner at Cheese cake factory
She kept wanting me to take a ton of pictures of her like this!
