Grandma and Grandpa visit to San Antonio/ 4th of July

4th of July weekend was a blast this year, mostly because Grandma Iwalani and Grandpa Bruce were able to come down and share it with us. The boys LOVE spending time with their grandparents. And Chad and I love having visitors.

For the fourth we were originally going to go to six flags, but when we got there and so the full parking lot we changed our minds and went to the Helotes Market. If you live in Helotes or San Antonio for that matter, you need to check this out. It's in downtown Helotes every 1st Saturday of the month. Local vendors come in and set up tents with all sorts of fun things, and YUMMY food! There's also rides sometimes. This time they had a mechanical bull and Devan had his first Bull ride. He was pretty brave. I didn't know how he would take it for sure, but he loved it.

We also went to Sea World for the first time while they were down. I had been once when I was little, but none of us had been there in recent years. It was so much fun. They had a show with cute seals and a gigantic walrus, a dolphin show with land, air, and water acrobats, and last but certainly not least Shamu. Devan still talks about Shamu all the time and how he soaked us. He says, "Let's got to Sea World and get splashed by Shamu really bad!" They boys would crack up laughing everytime we got splashed. By the end of the show we were all soaked from head to toe.

Thanks for coming down Iwalani and Bruce, we had a blast.
