On Vacation!!

I am now coming to you live from our hotel room with glorious free wireless internet! (glorious, because it’s the first time I’ve been able to get online since Friday morning due to our internet going down at home.) Yes, it’s vacation time and we have headed south to sunny San Antonio, Texas for a week of fun and family bonding. The gang’s all here – all 11 of us – including our oldest son, Robert, who has come along for all the thrills.

We left home this afternoon, 3 hours later than we had planned (no surprise there), but were pleasantly surprised that it didn’t take as long as we thought to get here. We have now settled into our really neat hotel room and ordered 4 pizzas (which have just arrived!). Our room is really neat because it’s one big “family” room – with 1 king bed, 2 full beds, a fold out couch and a roll-away. It’s really going to be fun all staying in the same room together. We have brought along a new game to play in our spare time – Indiana Jones LIFE boardgame – maybe after the littles get to sleep.

This should be a fun trip for all. We used to come here many years back when our older children were small, so they are looking forward to revisiting the old spots. Our younger children have never been, so are looking forward to doing all of the fun things they’ve heard about.

While we are off on vacation, the little darlings at home (pets) are being cared for by my most capable brother, who is housesitting while we’re gone. Thanks Mike!!!

That’s all for now. It’s good to be back online, and it’s good to be on vacation! Until later . . .
