Category Archive:summer vacation
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 darling daughter and I had a great time at my friend’s home last night. She and her husband hosted a birthday party for three of our friends, and it was our second sleep-over their house. There were dancing and lots of fun games. K enjoyed the dancing part. There were lots of food, drinks, and dessert. Though it was grownups’ birthday party, the young ones were given the time to have fun dancing and play kids’ games at the party. When it was time for bed, we got ready and tucked ourselves to bed at around 11:00 P.M.
We thought we were able to swim at my friend’s pool this morning but it rained very hard with thunder and lightning. So we will just come over next time to swim. 🙂
