SATURDAY.......Day out......

As usual, squashing pennies for souveniers.

Kati is enjoying her new haircut...thanks to mum and walwart.

William and chocolate ice cream at Baskin Robins.

Then it was off to the shoe store to buy school shoes.

William is a size 4

Kati is a ladies size 10.

A small drink to quench his thirst. A 64 ounce Texas sized Mug.

I spy with my little eye...

Something begining with K

woke the kids up early and told them we would be running errands,and doing some school shopping... We stopped and had lunch at MAD DOGS, a pub like restaurant on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. I had a coupon for $25 off, why not use it. The food was delicious, and we brought home as much, if not more than we ate.

After lunch we decided to go see the American Tower. A tourist attraction here.

It was actually quite interesting, and they showed a cute movie in 4D, wind, water, movement effects etc.

Then we rode the elevator to the top and walked around the observation deck a few times.I didn't realise San Antonio was so flat...

I was so glad we spent a great day together, I have 2 great kids.

Seaworld on Wednesday.

William and I headed out to Seaworld today. It's only a 45 minute drive and we have season passes,so why not....

Kati had other plans. and Folau, bless him, was working. So off we went, we met a friend of mine there too.

We first went to see the penguins and puffins. I could have spent a lot more time in there just observing, but William was anxious to move on.

The weather still very hot, up to 105 degrees, so where better to spend time than in the water park.

I love the lazy river, in fact anything with the word lazy in it.(lazy susan, lazy boy etc etc) I think we sat and circled the lazy river for almost 2 hours, then we made our way over to the wave pool. After an hour or so of that William and I did a few tube rides....then back to the Lazy river.

As we were getting ready to leave the park, the clouds moved in. We haven't seen a decent amount of rain for so long so we were well pleased. It was nice to walk in the rain too, It wasn't cold. We stopped at the bakery so William could have his usual chocolate chip muffin.

He fell asleep at around 7 pm in the car. The traffic was horrendous because of the rain and by the time we got home I was hammered. William fell straight into bed and I hit the hay at 8:30 pm and didn't move until 9:30 the next morning.

Must have been all that hard work at the water park.

Fun in the afternoon.

Today Folau got off work early, so we headed out to Canyon Lake. Kati had other plans, so It was just William, Folau and myself and the dogs.
Folau set up camp , enough shade for one.

I was relaxing on my floaty until I was used as a life raft by Maya and Zorro.
William and Maya.

The water was fabulous, clear and warm.
Here is a picture of me watching the clouds. I must have been out there for almost one hour,
I see a rabbit in this one.

William is a little fish, couldn't get him out of the water.
Poor Zorro doesn't like being in the water too much.

Maya on the other hand just loves it.

Folau did a bit of fishing too.
I think we are going to have to be spontaneous more often. What a great afternoon.
