First it was two years. Then it’s two months. Now it’s two days. Wow! It’s almost time for our vacation.
It takes about two years for us to plan and save for a long family vacation. Yes it does because in this life, you never know what will come up and what priorities will be. Sometimes you have to set aside the travel plans because there is much more important thing to deal with in terms of expenses. And so there will be a great timing to save money for travels again. Once you have decided and agreed about where to go and what to do, better stick to it so your plans won’t get ruined.
So the vacation plans were finalized. My daughter and I are going on a vacation to the Philippines. In this occasion, we’ll be traveling with a dear friend. Two months go before our flight and I’m like “oh it’s getting closer”. I’m getting excited for our trip.
Oh dear, two more days and we’re on vacation. Wow! How time flies so fast. It’s getting near. My family back home are very excited. My parents and siblings will meet us at the domestic airport in Leyte next week. Happy times!!!
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. 🙂

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.

These are my sisters. They are Milly and Dylen. The youngest is Dylen, the one in the front. Milly is married and a mom to two teenage girl and boy. We are four in the family and I am the eldest. Our only brother is next to Milly. He is also married now with two children.
Dylen just graduated college a couple of months ago. Now she is preparing to go to the nursing board examination review in Cebu next month. She and few of her classmates who are in the 3rd batch of reviewers will head to Cebu and stay there for a few weeks. Dylen told me that they have to pay the review tuition in full this month so they don’t have to think about it during the review. In addition to the tuition, they have to pay lodging. We sent Dylen some travel money so she has a budget during her stay in Cebu.
I miss my siblings very much. I miss our talks and hanging out together. We are looking forward to a long vacation again. And we are planning to go to the beach. Hopefully we will be able to do it. It’s a long wait but we have a long time to save money for it. 🙂
