I am taking a road trip to Corpus Christi, TX to visit my husband grand parents whom he had not seen in a couple of years. In our small car was our family which consists of two adults and two young children. Our first challenge was packing all that we needed in our car. My husband being a good packer got it all in.
We had originally intended to leave at 7 am, but being the procrastinators that we are we didn’t leave till about 9 am.
Our first night we stayed in Temple TX. The second day we drove to San Antonio TX, where we stayed two nights. We went to Sea World for one day and enjoyed the day very much. My lil guy had a blast and the baby did very well.
From there we drove to Corpus Christi and stayed for two nights at a family members home. This was good because it saved us on hotel room. While in CC we visited my husbands grand parents on his fathers side who are 90 and live in a really nice retirement home. I had never met them, so it was nice to be able to talk to them and spend some time there visiting.
Our second night there we went to have pizza with my mother in laws family. I had not met any of them in person either. It was quite an experience too I might add. None of them came to my wedding they were all too busy for that event.
The next day we started our drive back home. We stopped at a hotel in Salado TX and were planning on staying one night and keep going home but that is not what happened at all. We were all so tired of driving, especially the kids we all decided to stay on additional night. Ah only a small snag in that only one room was available crud. Well we stayed in the same room for just one night thank goodness.
The next morning we drove home, a long drive mind you but we arrived.
