We started off the weekend by catching some local fireworks on Friday night! It was a great display!
The next day we headed down to S.A. to see my Dad, Myrtle, Taylor and Randi. We had a great trip down (no big tantrums in the car, by Lauren. Actually got a little bit of a nap!) We headed down to the riverwalk that evening. Yes, it was about 105 degrees, but we suffered through with a little mexican food and margaritas from Casa Rio and then a nice little river tour. We hadn't done that in a hundred years, so it was fun to take the girls on it! We brushed up on our S.A. river facts, so it was a success!
The next day, we took Sarah to Sea World. A big thank you to "Opa" and Myrtle for watching Lauren. She would have been miserable in the sweltering heat out there. Sarah had a blast! Her favorite part was getting splashed by the Shamu's (there were 3 of them) and I must admit that was my favorite part, too! Took me back to my childhood when we came to the park. That was always the highlight! That night we had a nice little birthday dinner for your's truly! My dad cooked steaks and Myrtle made these fantastic pies. It was a nice little trip and I am glad we got to visit with everyone! Sarah and Lauren had a blast with Opa and staying in a hotel was a highlight for them. Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!
