I never imagined that going on vacation could be so stressful! About a week before we were supposed to leave my car broke down and required way more work than I even want to get into here (or know how to explain). AJ finally got finished fixing it on Sunday just a few hours before we wanted to leave, so we packed up and headed out. Everything seemed fine until we pulled into a Wendy’s for dinner and the car died the moment we got into the parking lot. AJ looked at it and tried to get it started again abut after a few hours we realized that it wasn’t going to happen. We ended up calling a tow truck to tow the car up to Round Rock and had my brother go get our other car to meet us on the way there. Unfortunately the tow truck was a three seater and we had Annaleigh in the car seat so lucky AJ got to have me sit in his lap for an hour (remember that I’m pregnant – I thought his legs might fall off). Chris met up with us quickly, we moved our stuff into the Jeep and got back on the road while Chris rode the rest of the way to our house in the tow truck. We ended up getting to Port Aransas after midnight, with a very sleepy kid.
After exciting start, our vacation got a lot better! We had a great time at the beach, jet skiing and just relaxing. Annaleigh was awesome the whole time! She loved the ocean and especially playing in the sand, and had no problem sleeping in a strange place.
We also went to the aquarium while we were in Port Aransas. We got to see one of the aquarioum employees feed a sting ray by hand, and got to touch some ourselves. Annaleigh loved all of the fish, and especially the otters!
