Vacay Day 1 Part 2

Part 1 is here

…..We also got to see

Spidey::
And Batman::
Jax got to ride in the Bat mobile::
My two action figure lovers::
They had a great toy room where nothing was off limits…. they even had all kinds of superhero costumes! Thank you to whomever had this idea…. 30 minutes of seeing REALLY cool stuff and not touching a thing is not cool for a 4 year old, so this was a blast for him!
The playroom::
Us::
After leaving the museum, we had about 6 hours to go still! We hit major traffic a few times, it was nice to have the GPS (affectionately known as “Tommy”) to let us know our estimated time of arrival… it was also a little irritating to see that we only moved .8 miles in 30 minutes!
We made a pit stop in Alvarado, TX. There was a large gas station with a sonic semi/attached and a smokehouse inside. We really just stopped for the restroom and a drink, but the smell of the BBQ lured us in for dinner! – If you live in that area you really should try it!
After a quick bite we were “On the Road Again“… I might have sung a few lines of Willie! We still had about 3 hours to go! It wasn’t long until we were BACK in traffic. Actually we were completely stopped on the highway! About 40 minutes later we were forced to exit the highway::
Once we were back on the highway, it was smooth and then FINALLY… We had reached our destination (9:45pm)::
San Marcos, TX – here’s the hotel we stayed in::
We were pleased with our hotel choice. It just opened in March, so everything was still nice and clean! Also, working for a huge corporate bank helped us score some pretty nice discounts… yes even for leisure! (there are SOME perks… ha)

It was time to get unpacked and settled in! But first, there was one little boy who had been VERY good all day in hopes of a surprise at the hotel!

Joey quickly hid it under the pillows on the bed. Jax was searching for it and randomly he saw the tag on the chair and the roo
m
and said “I found a clue”! ha! It didn’t take long for him to find it! It was like Christmas in July for him! So fun!
Then we HAD to jump and play on the bed… it’s a must do in hotels for us!::
We went for a quick swim in the pool… then back to the room for showers. And what’s a hotel party with out…. Pizza?::
Needless to say we were exhausted and ready for bed!
Day 2 coming soon!
