Sea World

It's been a while since we checked in. Sorry about that, but just in case you didn't know, we have been blessed with a second child, and no extra seconds, if you get my drift. This branch of the Eickenhorst tree has been quite busy, lately. Fishin trips, Confirmations, Easter egg hunts, and a journey to Sea World have filled our calendar recently. Coming soon: Astros games, concerts, birthday parties, and baptisms...all in May alone. Somewhere in there we have to fit work, food, a hot shower, and sleep. We're loving life and staying occupied in many ways.

This past week, we took our first vacation as a foursome. I had the opportunity to take off from work for a couple of days, and Melissa had mentioned taking Nate to Sea World, so we decided to go for it. I called my cousin Sandy, and she hooked us up with a sweet hotel room. We borrowed my parents suburban that has a sun roof and a DVD player, (we like to travel in style). My plan was to leave at 2:00 PM. We pulled out of the driveway at 2:41. Not too shabby.
We stopped several times due to the fact that we are in the middle of potty training Nate. But, we made the trip in about 3 1/2 hours. We had a blast. Nate was beside himself with joy. Sea World San Antonio wore him out! Take a look at the pictures below.
