It is Summer Break my dear friends! I know each one of you is excited to go on vacation and family visits. But with this COVID-19 pandemic still going on, how can we do that? Though some states in the country are starting to re-open slowly, we still need to observe social distancing and wear face masks. Going out for some outdoor fun in groups is not quite safe, staying home is still recommended.
Summer vacation is one of my favorite times of the year. This is when I don’t have to wake up very early in the morning on weekdays. 😀 I get to sleep late in the mornings and I like it a lot. My darling daughter does the same. We wake up at around 10:00 o’clock in the morning (the latest) when the school is out. Workshops and summer camp schedule is in the afternoon so our day is not in a rush. We just start slow and enjoy the day.
Besides outdoor games and my daughter’s summer camp, my family and I play video games at home. This is one of the fun games my daughter and I do on weekends. Sometimes my dear husband joins us to play, too. Three years ago he bought a Super Mario Kart 8 video game for his daughter three as a Christmas present. We have been enjoying the game on the Wii U from then on.
There are lots of interesting age-appropriate video games. And if you are shopping for games for the family, Rakuten store has gaming consoles and games for all ages and game system types. I am thinking of getting the Animal Crossing game sometime soon. With its good reviews online, I think my darling daughter will like it. It looks fun.
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 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.
