Anniversary Trip

It just so happens that the 2nd week of Kyle's block leave this summer falls on our 5th wedding anniversary. He will be in a class the 1st week so going anywhere for the whole time is out. We finally came to a decision as to where we want to go for at least a few days. We are going to San Antonio! We have plans to go to these 2 places while we are there:

Thanks to the Hero's Salute we were able to get 2 free tickets.




Sclitterbahn is an awesome water park in New Braunfels, which is about 30 minutes from San Antonio.


I'm excited to get away for a few days, it is much needed for both of us. It will be fun to explore the area and see other parts of Texas. I am taking advantage of our time together because he will be knee deep in training after block leave gearing up for the dreaded "D". 

Do you all have plans for the summer?! 

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I went to the SeaWorld in Ohio when I was really little. It closed down now but I loved it.

    I don't like swimming so a water park would be out for me. LOL.

    Hopefully, by the time his deployment rolls around it'll get canceled!

  8. I live in San Antonio right now (I'm actually only a mile from Sea World). If you are looking for any good places to eat, visit, etc., let me know! There are so many fun things to do here!

  10. No definite plans, we're still thinking over here.

    I've never been to Sea World. I know you'll have fun, and hurrah on exploring more of the state. :)

  11. That'll be so fun! I love going to water parks. No real plans for this summer but we're still going to try to get away from the city for a weekend at least. We might go to D's unit's Strong Bonds marriage retreat if we're allowed to bring a two month old.

  12. I love San Antonio! I went to Schlitterbahn years ago and loved it. The water was cold though! Sounds like a fantastic way to spend block leave before the impending deployment.

  15. That's exciting! We did SeaWorld Orlando a couple years ago and last night we gave our son the option of having a pirate pool party or going to SeaWorld in San Antonio (small world!) with a friend of his choice (so long as said friend's parents approve)and he, naturally picked SeaWorld so we'll be there the end-ish of June

  17. I loved the German food in New Braunfels. Sure it wasn't like when I was in Germany but it is much better than most I've had here in the State. Have fun on your trip.

  20. San Antonio is a fun city. I have been a few times since it is a few hours away. Sea World was great. There are a lot of great places to eat there as well.

    I have always wanted to go to Schlitterbahn, but haven't made it there yet.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Definitely post pictures. I love Sea World! We've already done our big trips this year, but we might squeeze in a trip to Nashville and Portland for the hubster's Birthday.

  22. This would be so much fun! Going to a water park with my husband was such a blast. I didn't know if I would like it when I wasn't a kid, but I totally did!

  23. O no! I didnt realize Kyle was deploying :( Glad you are taking advantage of the time until then!

  24. I hope you have fun during your trip! I'm personally not a big fan on San Antonio, but there are definitely nice spots. Try to check out the natural caverns there, and maybe the gift shops at Greene, or go rafting! Enjoy yourselves (and don't eat at the food court at the Mercado, if you want to spend your vacation anywhere else than the bathroom!!)

  25. Have I mentioned that I'm jealous about you going to Schlitterbahn!? ;-) I think it's awesome that Sea World offers free tickets too! I'm going to have to utilize it!

  29. I have wanted to go to that water park for so long! We love water parks, so I am officially jealous. One piece of warning: both of you should leave your rings at home when you go. We went to a water park on our honeymoon and my husband LOST his wedding band in the lazy river. ON OUR HONEYMOON.
