I know you are one of the parents who are excited and couldn’t wait for the Spring Break to come. Yes it is getting hear. Actually, in our district, Spring Break is next week starts on March 11th. Hopefully the weather next week is ideal for outdoor activities so we can enjoy going to the parks or any attractions in and around Dallas-Fort Worth.
My darling daughter wants to go to the zoo and the botanical gardens next week. Like I said, I hope the weather would be fine next week because I am pretty sure the zoo will be crowded as usual. Like last year’s Spring Break, we are just going to do stay-cation this year. We went to the zoo and botanical gardens and looks like we are going do that again.
Do you have any travel plans on Spring Break this year? Where are you going? Thanks for sharing.

It’s Spring Break 2018. What’s your plans? Do you have some activities in mind for your children to keep them occupied this week? There are Spring Break Camps or programs offered by recreation centers and sport centers but I decided to just keep my child’s schedule open for local travels. In fact, my darling daughter already planned how to spend her Spring Break. Haha!
She has two fun places in mind that she wants to visit this week.
- Sea Life Aquarium (Grapevine, TX)
- Fort Worth Zoo (Fort Worth, TX)
Although she has been to SeaLife Aquarium before, DD enjoyed the sea creatures. She likes watching them and she is interested in learning more about each one of them-especially the sharks. 😀
This will be DD’s second trip to Fort Worth Zoo, too. She was two years old when we first went. Two-year-olds don’t remember a thing. DD went to the zoo in Dallas with Uncle J and Aunt D but she did not want to go back there. So we figured she wanted to visit Fort Worth Zoo.
As I was finalizing our Spring Break 2018 schedule I thought, it’s all good. These places are educational as well as fun. And they are not very far. Yes we are having a staycation this week. Our goal is to not spend too much in our travels because we are looking forward to a big vacation early next year.
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.

Swimming lessons at YMCA.
This week is my darling daughter’s second level of swimming lessons. The class is introduced to water movements. The first level swimming class was about water acclimation where the students were taught to feel confident in the water so they won’t be scared whatsoever. Level 2 is about water movement. Students are taught about recommended and proper water movement in swimming. Also, breathing techniques are introduced as well as proper floating and to get off the water by themselves.
K was joined with my friend’s daughter Ari because my cousins’ are on vacation. The instructor teaches the students in the 5-feet deep water then takes them to the 8-feet deep water for the jumps.
Hello! My mom and I are having breakfast at 10:30 A.M. My dad said that we will be back to being night owls because school is out. He is funny. 🙂
It’s the first weekend of summer break. My mom and I are going to visit her best friends in Fort Worth today. One of them, Tita N (tita is Tagalog word for aunt), is holding a birthday party for three of the lady friends at her house. We are spending the night at her house also. It would be fun because I really really would like to see the cats, Bambi and Brutus. It is going to be fun!
Okay, this is all for now. My mom said we are going to Dollar General to buy some drinks to bring to the party.
