We just got back from our first family vacation and it was so much fun! We drove down to San Antonio, TX and spent several days there at Sea World, museums and the riverwalk. And of course, the hotel pools. :) Madison did great on the 8-9 hour drive and just played with her toys, watched DVD's and took naps. What a great girl! We stayed at the Hilton Country Spa hotel right across from Sea World. I would recommend this hotel to anyone...we will definitely stay there again! It was beautiful and kid friendly at the same time. We stayed in a suite so Madison could have her own room (we cannot sleep in the same room or Madison thinks it's playtime). I wish we had the video camera going when we walked into our hotel room (Madison's first hotel stay). She ran around touching the tub, sink, couch, bed, etc. saying "Wow" over and over. She was so excited. The hotel had three pools - one kiddie pool, one regular pool and a lap pool. Madison LOVED swimming in the kiddie pool every evening. We all had such a great time and we can't wait to go back in a couple of years!!
