National Lampoon's Texas Vacation . . .

Feel like a kid again when each summer - dad and mom took vacation - and my sisters and I climbed into bed and laid awake with excitement all night or until 4 a.m. when mom and dad would load us up and off to the mountains we would head!  Family Vacation!!   Mom, Dad, and 3 kids in the back of a station wagon!  It's that time of the year . . .

Tomorrow hubs and I will pick up our daughter and son-in-law, granddaughter, and drive 12 hours to Wally World . . . no I mean San Antonio!    The Alamo, The River Walk, Six Flags Fiesta, motel, food, fun and family!   We are meeting our son and his wife and two more granddaughters there for a fun filled four day stay.  

Our hearts are staying behind a little with the other (4) members of our family  - - Ben and Angie will stay close to home as baby Grayson is due soon and Kristi will stay home to help out with the family pet and to prepare for being a new aunt!    We will be checking in with them often!!

I couldn't help but think of one of my favorite movies - National Lampoon's Vacation - If you remember Clark has big plans to take his family cross country to a huge, spectacular amusement park - Wally World - in Florida!  Always a lot of planning can go into orchestrating a family vacation - and yes we've done some planning - rooms are reserved and tickets purchased for a day at Six Flags and White Water Bay Water Park.  But hopefully that is where the resemblance stops - - - we don't plan on dragging any dogs behind our vehicle or strapping anyone to the top of the car . . . 

Join me for the next four days as I share our fun!

Clark:  Why aren't we flying?  Because getting there is half the fun.  You know that.
