About Me & My Family

I am a mom of 3 wonderful little boys (one with special needs), a beautiful baby girl, and am married to the man of my dreams. I am very interested in incorporating learning into activities that we do, so a trip to the beach turns into a school field trip. Recently, we moved back to California after a brief move to Texas and feel blessed to be able to be involved in all facets of Christian Camping. Because my husband and I serve in full time ministry, we're lucky to be able to spend a lot of time around each other and our family, having exciting adventures and just living life, day by day. :)
Our Family's Travel Personality
adventurous, curious, structured, relaxed, independent, energetic, spontaneous, easy_going, scheduled, artsy
We Just Got Back From
Japan, Lake Tahoe, Camp! (Not on the same trip though) :)
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
Anywhere new where discoveries can be made! We're pretty frugal, so budget traveling is definitely the way we go. However, occationally, we do love to splurge too! :)
A Place We'd Love To Visit
Austrailia to scuba dive the barrier reef, a zero-gravity flight to experience weightlessness, ziplining and exploring a rainforest, exploring the vast glaciers in Alaska, just to name a few!
Favorite Vacation Memory
It's completely simple, but watching our 6 year old get selected to be a Jedi Knight at Disneyland. It's his "lifelong" dream and still today when someone asks him what he's going to be someday, he proudly answers, "A Star Wars Guy!"
Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Right after checking into our hotel, my 4 year old threw up in the middle of the floor on the carpet, all over his jammies, his lovey, and on his little brother. Thankfully, the hotel we were staying in had a laundromat that was open late, so a few hours later, and after some carpet scrubbing, everything was cleaned up and like new.

Starting the day after Thanksgiving, the River Walk is transformed into a magical world of Christmas lights and decorations galore.

Every year for the past 53 years, Windcrest has light up the streets in a decorating contest to obtain coveted titles like, "Joyful", "Creative Lighting," etc... A map is handed out at city hall (the address listed above) and residents and visitors can judge for themselves which homes deserve what prizes. The contest date is December 12th, but most homes keep their lights on in the evenings throughout the season.

Join the critters of Sea World for their enchanting Christmas Celebration! Guests can enjoy special live shows, animal encounters, a journey on the Polar Express, hot cocoa, and Christmas lights. Check their website for dates and prices.



8320 Agora Pkwy
San Antonio, Texas

Comment:
The best Christmas light displays aren't actually at The Forum, but on the streets behind it! Head down Olympia behind the center and see for yourself. A fun way to spend an evening would be to shop and have dinner at the forum, and then go for a drive on the streets behind it for some Christmas cheer.
