We did so much fun stuff last year. We went on a vacation in the summer and attended kids’ activity parties during the Holidays. It was indeed another wonderful year and my family and I were very grateful for everything.
We went back to San Antonio last summer with our darling daughter. It was 6 years since we were there. We stayed in La Quinta Inns & Suites-Riverwalk. I don’t know but my daughter likes La Quinta. Though it was a very busy vacation, we had so much fun because we went to Sea World San Antonio. It was my darling daughter’s first experience at Sea World. She got to see the Shamu Show, Clyde and Seymour High Show, and got on some rides including the thrilling Journey to Atlantis. That was her favorite ride she said. Gladly it was mostly cloudy the day we went to Sea World. The weather was just perfect for lots of walking in the park. Still, we brought our sunscreen, towels, and three bottled water for us to drink.
The day before Sea World fun, we strolled by the Riverwalk and had dinner at Guadalajara Grill. My favorite meal there was the Molcajete. Then after a fun day at Sea World, we just enjoyed sightseeing by the Riverwalk around lunch time. We got on a boat that tours around. Interesting history and facts while boating. Then we explored the Market Square in the afternoon. My darling daughter got the chance to ride the mechanical bull. She had so much fun. We saw a lot of colorful clothing, souvenir items, home decor, and entertainment (singing) in the square. At check out day, we went up to the Tower of the Americas located at the HemisFair Park. It was very interesting and amazing experience to go up to the tower and read some stuff about Texas history. DD and dear husband looked through telescope a few times and walked around while I was reading stuff.
Three days and two nights in San Antonio, Texas were worth it. Leaving San Antonio, we were headed to New Braunfels for some swim and splash at #Schlitterbahn. It’ll be in my next post. 🙂

Going up to The Tower of the Americas
My dear husband and I were glad that our darling daughter had wonderful time on our vacation in San Antonio. We took our little one to Sea World, strolled on the Riverwalk, and went up to the Tower of the Americas.
My husband didn’t have a plan on going up to the tower but since we’re already in San Antonio, I thought why not give it a try. And I would like to go up there. 🙂 It was worth the trip. While my loves were busy looking over the town thru a telescope on the Observation Deck, I enjoyed reading the history of San Antonio and the State of Texas itself from the photo exhibits and historical information display on the deck including the story behind the Six Flags Over Texas.
Looking thru the telescope requires 25 cents or a quarter. It was a great experience for me because it was my first time way up high.
Tower of the Americas in San Antonio, Texas
The Tower of the Americas is located at the HemisFair Park in San Antonio, Texas. If you are heading South of Texas, visit San Antonio. Don’t forget to go up to the Tower of the Americas. It’s one of the best things to do in San Antonio.
Hello everyone! Hello, month of July. 🙂 Me and family got very busy the last week. We went to Seaworld San Antonio and Schlitterbahn New Braunfels. It’s been five years since the last time my husband and I had a trip to San Antonio. That was before baby. This time, we have K with us. We wanted her to see the Shamu Show and Clyde and Seymore, the sea lions. With her fascination with sea creatures, our darling daughter had a wonderful time at Seaworld. Her favorite attractions at Seaworld were the Shamu Show, Clyde and Seymore – Sea Lion High, and the Journey To Atlantis Ride. We got soaking wet at the Shamu Show because we were sitting in the splash zone, really close to the tank. That was really fun.
At the Shamu Show – Seaworld San Antonio
After the Shamu Show, we walked towards the Flamingo spot. Here K met a new friend and they fed the flamingos and the ducks together. My daughter is a social butterfly.
K met a new friend at the Flamingo area.
When she finished feeding the Flamingos, my hubby let me and K ride the Shamu rollercoaster for kids. Boy, she wanted to ride that again and again. But we got very hungry so we had a late lunch. Full from lunch, we walked to the next attractin – Clyde and Seymore Sea Lion High. It was a comedy show. We had so much fun laughing and of course, got splashed again.

Journey To Atlantis Ride
Last but not the least attraction we experienced was the Journey To Atlantis. At first, K didn’t want to go try to ride. She just wanted to get wet in the huge splash of water as the carriage went down. That was so much fun, too.

Oh summer is here again! My darling daughter and I couldn’t wait for our summer family vacation next month. Actually, our upcoming vacation is in about two weeks. We are going to Galveston Island, Texas. ‘Haven’t been back there in three years. That was when I was pregnant with darling daughter. I am excited for her that she will see the beach and the sand. The beach there isn’t that great but still I love to be at the beach. 🙂
We have to buy new water shoes. And I think my dear husband’s swimming shorts were kind of worn out so I am going to buy a new pair for him sometime next week.
My younger sister said that closing of classes for the School Year 2012-2013 is in two days. So my niece and nephews will be off school soon. They cannot wait for the summer vacation. Of course, because they love to play and have fun.
Because the kids’ clearance form will not be signed by the respective subject teachers if they don’t meet the final requirements, my sister asked me for a small assistance. She hadn’t paid the balance for the school tuition fees yet because she doesn’t have the money. So I sent her some that will cover the tuition fees and small expenses at school.
The process of the School Clearance signing is easy if the students respond to the school requirements immediately such as:
1. Fully paid tuition fees and miscellaneous fees
2. Textbooks returned on time without any damage
3. Class and school projects on every subject matter was accomplished
4. Fines paid
5. Borrowed books are returned to the library
6. …and others.
If there are students who had issues that lead them to the Guidance Counselor’s office, it’s recommended to resolve the issues before closing of classes. I was in that situation when I was in high school. But thanks God the issue between me and my Math teacher was resolved. I will tell you the story in my next post.
And so, the above mentioned school requirements are based on our public school back home. Some schools especially the private schools have broader function so the requirements list is much longer. 🙂
Hopefully my niece and nephews had good grades this year.
