It was a very pleasant day driving today. We are here on Padre Island in Corpus Christi, TX. It is our small family’s summer vacation this year. Darling daughter is very happy because she’s been wanting to go to Schlitterbahn Waterparks and Resorts. So we had to try going to the one here in Corpus Christi. If I was not mistaken, were were in two Schlitterbahn Waterparks four years ago. We went to one in Galveston Island and the other one in New Braunfels. We all liked the two locations. Schlitterbhan in Galveston Island was indoors. Though the Schlitterbahn New Braunfels wasn’t, there were lots of shady areas because of big trees within the resort. We’ll see if this one in Corpus Christi is nice.
The targeted time to leave the house didn’t go through. We were supposed to be on the road at 9:00 A.M. today, but we had to leave around 11:00 A.M. instead. It was an 8-hour drive overall from Lavon (TX). We arrived at our destination around 7:00 P.M. and headed towards the front desk to check in and everything. After that, we drove to the beach and relaxed a bit. Then we ate dinner at La Palma Mexican Restaurant off S. Padre Island Drive and Whitecap Boulevard.

My dear husband and our darling daughter attended the school’s Father-Daughter Dance 2017 this evening. It was their very first Father and Daughter Dance event. My husband didn’t know what to do at the Dance so I went with them and helped him with the registration process. He thought I’d be able to go with them inside the dance hall but I can’t. Only fathers and daughters can. He didn’t bring his cellphone so they didn’t have any pictures together at the dance.
K accessorized for the dance. 🙂
When we were getting ready and while I was dressing K, she grabbed the peacock Christmas ornament and asked me to pin it on her shoulder facing forward. This kid has a big imagination on accessorizing. 🙂 She was walking carefully not to let the blue peacock fall off her shoulder.
Instead of going home after dropping of my loves, I decided to go to my cousin’s house and had a visit while waiting for the time to pick up my loves. My cousin baked some chocolate cupcakes and they were delicious.
I picked dear husband and K at 8:30 P.M.. K said she had a great time at the dance.
at the cinema
My family and I enjoy watching movies on weekends. Also, if there is an interesting animated movie for kids, we watch it together on Saturdays. Like this afternoon, we watched the movie Sing. My darling daughter wanted to watch The Space Between Us. But it is not appropriate for her age so I convinced her to watch something else. Luckily, Sing is still playing in the cinema in Wylie.
I thought the movie would be one of those lame animated movies. But, because it’s a musical and had a good song list (soundtrack), K and I enjoyed it. Sing was an entertaining movie with good humor in it. The animal characters sang their songs with full emotion. The story line was good.
K had a great time. She loves watching movies.
Baby girl and I went to the cinemas and watch the Trolls movie. I thought it was just one of those exaggerated animated movies for kids that I don’t like. We found it musically entertaining, fun, cheerful, and cute. It has a bit of a fairy tale story in it. I thought Poppy would be K’s favorite. But it was Branch that she likes because he became a happy troll at the end of the movie.
So guess what she received on her 6th birthday from Mom and Dad? Trolls plush toy and Poppy’s pink wig. My baby girl was very happy. 🙂
