Father's Day weekend we took a short vacation with the Konesheck family to San Antonio. This summer, we stayed at the J.W. Marriott Resort. It is absolutely beautiful and relaxing. The hotel sits on a hill that overlooks the hill country. When you walk in the lobby, you actually walk into the 2nd level and you can look out a wall of windows to see the hill country. The pool area has a lazy river, kids pool and slides, adult slides and a beautiful pool lounge area.
The kids had a wonderful time floating in the "crazy river" as Cainan calls it, and showing off their swimming skills. The first day, most of us went to the pool while Eric, Michael and David (Katie's boyfriend) went to play golf. The hotel is home to a TPC golf course, so the boys were excited about getting to play there. After a long day at the pool, we all went to shower and relax, where I discovered that I was absolutely fried! I had not been that sunburned in as long as I can remember. I had put on sunscreen 4 times that day, but somehow got more burned that all the other pale skinned people in the family. =) That night we ate dinner at the hotel and hung out around the hotel.
On Sunday, we spent the day at the pool and lazy river again. Thankfully for my sunburn, we had a cabana rented for the day. I was able to stay in the shade for most of the day and catch up on some reading. Sunday was Father's Day, so we went out to dinner that night to celebrate Russell and Michael.
Eric and I had to leave San Antonio by 5am on Monday so he could be back in time for work. Even though it was a short weekend, we had a great time. It is always nice to get to spend time with the Konesheck's...it's always an adventure being part of their big family!
