Vacation Day 3

We survived the night without any ghost sightings at the Menger, or as Trent keeps calling it the Manger!!!

We went downstairs to eat breakfast. Logan wanted to see the shop that had the little army men. They had a replica of the Alamo on display. It was very authentic with cannons and little soldiers and little puffs of cotton coming out of the cannons for smoke. When Logan saw a little soldier wounded on the ground he would point and say, "look mom he's hurt, bless his little heart". I love how sweet and kind he can be...sometimes.
The big boys finally woke up and we were off to SeaWorld. 
Mom and all her babies
Logan kept calling here little flamingos! 
My two handsome men. They should still be babies! 
I love my crazy Trent. He doesn't mind being silly with me.
We rode the Atlantis ride. It was like a log ride. Logan was scared but he did it. It was hot so we told the big boys to go ride rides and we took Logan to the splash pad. 

Karate kicking the water
Logan rode a Shamu roller coaster. He said it was awesome.
We all met to watch the show Azul. My whole world in one picture.
My family. I still look at pictures and get goosebumps at my beautiful babies and how blessed I am that their mine.
As we were waiting on the show to start the sky began to rain, then it got ugly...hurricane ugly y'all. The show was canceled and we were placed on code purple! I don't like code meant we could not leave the stadium because the wind and lightening were so bad. I felt completely safe in an open air, metal stadium with a huge pool of water in front of us and the rain blowing in on us and lightening striking sky to ground all around us!

We were finally given the green light to leave the stadium and the Foster's hightailed it to the front gate for a refund!
We came back to the hotel and got ready for dinner. Ryan and I walked down to the Menger Bar and had a drink before dinner. I love my sweet man. He has been my sweetheart for over 25 years.
This bar is where Teddy Roosevelt recruited his RoughRiders.

Logan was upset that the pool was closed because of the rain.
Braden introduced us to Torchy's Tacos. 

We loved it!
Logan loved the old timey phone booths. He said he was calling Meme.
The boys watched Logan and my honey and I had a little date time! 
This lady was a Prohibitionist who tried to stop the Menger Bar from serving liquor by slamming her ax into the bar!
They have restored the bar by cutting out the ax riddled wood. The v piece of wood is where they replaced her ax strike.
Corbin was a good big brother and went swimming with Logan when the pool finally opened.
Babe Ruth stayed at the Menger.
Logan loved this picture. He said he loved how that mama was holding baby Jesus. It made him happy to look at.
Ryan and I went ghost hunting but didn't find any ghosts. We were a little mischievous and changed a couple of do not disturb signs on doors to read please make up room now. They will be surprised in the morning and hopefully think it was the Menger ghosts just having fun. The Foster's have had fun today!
