My family took a little road trip this past weekend.
I had business in Corpus Christi on Saturday and took the whole gang with me.
We packed up…made Bucee’s our first stop for Coke’s, Funyuns, and Twizzlers…all the things you would only eat on a 3 hour car ride.
And off we went.
We visited the USS Lexington and I took this:
It was overwhelming being on a vessel where so many people had lived…worked…protected and died for our country.
My daughter was scared at first but then she was in awe of the history on board.
And Little Man only cared about the “BIG OLE AIRPLANES MOM!”
Then I had my presentation to take care of while my husband and children rested at the hotel.
Afterwards, we went to the Texas State Aquarium.
It was so much fun and this is my most favorite memory of 2011, thus far:
My family. My precious children. My amazing husband.
My hope for this year is to take more ‘little road trips’ to spend time together, play Skip-Bo, watch movies and eat Funyuns and Twizzlers.
All four of us slept in the king bed at the hotel that Friday night.
It might have been one of the best night sleeps I have ever had.
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. Psalms 136:1
