San Antonio TRip...

Back to the JW Marriott Hill Country we went....always a lot of fun for the whole family...especially the kids..they have a blast...and the big kids grandparents. 
We got there wednesday night...the rest of the fam had been there since tuesday...but we were able to get there in time for a couple hours of swimming before the rain started...
The weather called for rain (flooding) the whole time we were there...but, although it rained everyday, it was just for a bit...and we got lots of sunshine in! some mornings it was still cloudy and overcast and made it a little chilly...but it didn't phase the kids, they braved the cold...nothing a towel, few shivers and a hot tub couldn't fix. haha! 
they had the best time in the water and going down the slides...well, all except for Claire. Our little adventerous one who thinks she can do whatever anyone else is doing, was pretty shy and timid...not acting like herself at all! Trav and I knew she would LOVE the slides and kinda pushed her...but didn't want to scare her... but she wasn't having it. she just wanted to go down with mommy....so, of course when she said that...me and jake took one for the team. we thought, if we could get her down once she would want to keep doing it...with daddy. ha! but, she wasn't interested in a repeat..so, we didn't ask again. She would tell us, "I don't want to go down the slide, I just want to watch."haha..so, we did! 
(and of course, when we get home and she gets in the pool for swim lessons, she is back to her water loving self and jumping off the diving board)...haha! 

Hanna had a blast on the slides and Ty LOVED the new big slides. he got to just go on the slides by himself...and we would catch up with him later. he was all about the need for speed. 

Since the last time we went (about 3 years ago, i think..I was pregnant with Claire) they added a whole new addition..which included 2 big water slides for older kids and adults...haha...I am not sure who had more fun...Travis or Ty! lol. 

We had a lot of fun water time and cousin time...but, by the end of the trip they were beat. 
The last day, saturday, they had all kinds of activities...so that's where you could find Ty...agility training, (girls got in towards the end), bracelet making, animal show (zoo animals were brought in), dinosaur exhibit (all kinds of dinosaur bones)...claire and I joined that too...she was so interested she feel asleep in my lap...lol....and he had multiple games of soccer ..and that night, after he scarfed his bbq sandwhich, he went back for more agility training. He had a very busy day and barely touched the water..haha! 

That same night, they had a live singer (who was very good) and a bouncy house inside b/c of rain....and the kids danced and jumped all around. Once the rain died off Hanna found her some older gymnastics friends who helped her with her back handsprings....and of course, claire had to join in as well....they were in heaven...but especially, hanna! Those girls were so sweet to them. 


Before we left on sunday, we had to participate in the lazy river duck race...that is always a highlight of the trip...they always remember that! 
This year, claire's duck got 2nd place...haha..and she got a bag of lovely treasures..haha! Ty's chewbacca's was in the front of the pack too..

such a fun few days and on the way home they all took a little rest..even Ty! 

This pic makes me laugh...looks like they are at Gamy's swim school..haha.





Ty's scuba dive...



she's a cracking..



water slide time...



ty going down...such a big kid this trip...




hanna's first time down...they did the little slide to warm up on...and she was a sliding queen after that...









The first time Ty did the tube slide he kinda sat up and put his arms out to slow him down...but after that initial ride..he was in perfect position...laid back with arms crossed on chest..haha.








There was a couple, in normal clothes, standing beside the slide watching..and when travis came down, they got drenched...lol! 

























claire's one and only trip down the slide...




Family pic time...


for some reason, the funny face pics always turn out the best..haha.


after dinner, it was so beautiful outside, the kids just played around...ty found a group of boys he played football with, and the girls though the putting green was their gymnastics floor...they were having a blast. 
With the beautiful backdrop, I asked ashley if she could take our pic...and I am so glad we did this impromptu pic...can't wait to add one more!!! 


agility training...







claire would go and go..until we got back to the room and would crash..




zoo show...ty touched it too..but no pic of that..:(


dinosaur exhibit...


my lover of laying out...catching some rays..



back for more agility training that night...


and gymnastics...





travis finally got Claire to ride the lazy river with him...we knew she would love it. 


we left on Sunday, but not before the lazy river duck race...that is always a favorite...the kids have always remembered that! 

and Claire's got 2nd place....haha..and ty's chewbacca was in the front of the pack too...











such a fun trip...always a great time...lots of sunshine and tan lines!!
