Livin' Lost Lagoon

An advantage to living in San Antonio is the quick access we have to Sea World, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the Riverwalk and the outlet malls that we didn't have living in Lubbock. Fausto was off today so we ventured to the outlet malls near San Marcos this morning. We were only there a little over an hour but long enough for Kylar to rake in some new clothes. He seems to always be the only one to get new clothes - probably because I'd rather shop for him then myself.

After lunch, we tried taking a nap but Kylar had already had one before lunch so he wasn't sleepy. If Kylar's not sleeping, ain't nobody sleeping!!

We loaded up and headed to Sea World's water park Lost Lagoon. Kylar had a blast!! We splashed around in Lil' Gator Alley which consists of about 8 inches of water, an octopus slide, a turtle, a thing that water falls off the top (not sure what it's called or how to describe it) and a Shamu. Kylar went down the slide once - only because I put him on it and pushed him down gently as Fausto was at the other end. He did great, but we didn't make him do it again!

Next was the Lazy River. There weren't any tubes left so we just walked around as Kylar bobbed up and down with his lifejacket on. We did finally get a tube and tried not to wipe out too many people ahead of us. This was work for me and Fausto. We were tired after 2 times around!!! Time to try something else.

The wave pool. Let me just say, those were some powerful waves! We sat in the shallow end, and it was funny how people kept moving closer and closer to the bank with each wave. I was holding Kylar at first, and we both got pelted by the first wave. I had no idea what to expect! Kylar played in the water before the next round of waves started and we headed to dinner at our favorite spot...

Luby's!!! Fausto found out on Friday that he was being transferred to a new store here in SA beginning Monday. We knew it would happen, just not this soon.

I'm wondering if I could have dumped any more information on you at one time. I think I will be able to go back to sleep now. Fausto's off again tomorrow so he gets to go to church with us. He doesn't get to go but a couple of times every 2 months. Sweet dreams!

I'm glad that ya'll had a great time. I wish that Willie and I, Mom and Dad, and everyone else could have been there to experience Kylar's first trip to the water park. I was telling Mom yesterday that I really miss ya'll, and especially since Kylar is getting so big and starting to do the things that make him...him. I hope that ya'll are having fun with Fausto being home and I can't wait to see ya'll VERY SOON!!! Be safe and we miss and love ya'll very much!!!! Much love sister~

A water park sounds perfect when it is so hot outside!
