Vacation Recap: Part 1

Hey Everyone! I am so happy to be back blogging. Thanks to all my wonderful guest bloggers for holding down the fort last week for me. It's safe to say that this last week in San Antonio has been by far the best vacation we have ever taken! It was just packed but we also got the chance to just relax and enjoy time together. I'm going to split this up into 3 posts so it's not so much at once.

Monday: We got up bright and early, dropped Emma and Fishy off at the vet, and hit the road. We got into SA at around 5pm, checked into our hotel, had dinner,  and went to the pool for some relaxation.

Tuesday: This was our first full day in SA and we headed off to Six Flags. We had a blast, so many fun roller coasters and water rides. We definitely will be going back, we even played some fun carnival games and left with some ridiculously funny prizes (including Superman capes haha).


After our fun filled day here we headed back to the room and thanks to some not so fun findings we ended up switching hotels and ended up at a gorgeous one! 

Wednesday: We spent the day at a water park called Schlitterbahn! Wow this place was incredible. If you have never heard of it go look it up now. This is the only water park that it's primary water source comes from the river that runs along side it (some of the rides even go into the river). There are no chemicals in the water, it's only filtered. There is a West and East portion of the park and both are equally fun. The East portion is new and has the faster water rides while the west is older but we thought it was more fun and less crowded.


After we finished up at the water park, we headed back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. We headed off to Cheesecake Factory and had a great night. 

Look for another recap tomorrow!

Have a great day!

  13. I'm glad y'all had fun! SA is such a cool place. I went to the Schlitterbahn but it was years ago. (I'm talking the '90's here.) I think I'm overdue for another visit! I can't wait to hear what else y'all were up to!

  14. I am not sure I want to know what you discovered at the hotel. I am so afraid of bed bugs when I stay at one. In San Antonio I have been staying at the air force bases.

    I am so disappointed we skipped Schlitterbahn. I still have a month left in Texas so I guess I have time. It was my fault I didn't make it to ITT before they closed to buy the discount tickets.
