A fun filled Labor Day weekend!

The Rose gang traveled to San Antonio this weekend....all 14 of us!
We went to the River Center Mall and enjoyed a riverboat ride!
Our boat was FULL!!!
The river tour was beautiful!
The guys hanging out!
I'm just noticing Peyton giving bunny ears...ha!
Saturday we all went to Sea World!
We had a super duper time minus the Labor Day crowd!
Grammy was a trooper!
We pushed her around in the wheel chair all day and she never complained!
Peyton gets to pet a baby alligator...yikes!
The shows were amazing!
It's been several years since I've been to Seaworld and I almost forgot how magical the shows are! Very exciting!
There is just something crazy about my 5 yr. old and roller coasters!!!
He has no fear!
We met Shamu!!!!
There was too much excitement for this little guy!
Right before we headed to The Lost Lagoon for the evening a little rain scared the crowds away! Our kiddos had a ball on all of the water slides.....all by themselves!!!!
No crowd!
No lines!
It was great!!!!
Saturday night we went to The Magic Time Machine!
Have you ever been there???
It was our first time and boy was it a treat!!!
Jack Sparrow, Harry Potter and Ace Ventura were our waiters for the night!!!
Our evening was full of entertainment!!!
Harry Potter really liked giving Garet a hard time!
He gave him a facial and "shaved" him clean!!!
Picked his boogers and know, boy stuff!!! the dinner table!!!
Carnell got a little too personal with Jack Sparrow and the grapes!
We all got "secret potion" punch!!!
Our drinks were SMOKIN!!!
Have you ever eaten somewhere where they throw food at you and you have to catch?
Not just rolls.....they were throwing corn on the cob, ribs, chicken.....
My boys were in heaven!
I'm a germaphobe and I was a little freaked out...just a little!!!!
Yes, this is my oldest on a table!!!!
Jack Sparrow prepared him to be the pig for our feast! This incident ended with a wedgy fight!
Ace Ventura!!!
Thanks James and Angela for introducing us to such a fun place!
I love historical sites and I love breakfast!
If you ever have the chance to visit San Antoniio, you must have breakfast or brunch at The Guenther House!
The Guenther's were the founding family of Pioneer flour!
This historical home is beautiful and they have delicious food!!!
I love to bake so this was a treat for ME!!!!
The home has a great gift shop!
Look....FALL GOODIES!!!!
My little domestic goddess in training!!!!
Look at those biscuits folks!!!
We couldn't go visit San Antonio without visiting The Alamo!!!
The grounds at The Alamo are GORGEOUS!!!
Makes me want to work in the yard!!!
I loved our tour!
It was a great weekend!
Fast....furious....lots of fun!!!!
Hope you are having a great LONG weekend!!!
I'm now unloading, unpacking, doing loads of laundry and baking!!!
So glad for a short week ahead!!
