Anderson Adventure...Day 1

Well, we are off on our family vacation to San Antonio. The kids woke up bright and early this morning and we hit the road around 8:00 A.M. We have a DVD player in our van so the trip goes by quicker for the kids. We had a picnic lunch and then around 1:00...a blow out on the van. So we spent some time this afternoon in Temple, Texas getting a flat fixed. While Chris was putting on the spare on the side of a bridge in alot of traffic Kaibryn asked what Daddy was doing. I told her that Daddy was putting on the extra tire. She so sweetly said, "Oh Mommy, did you pack a tire too." Pretty funny.

The Lord really took care of us (1) the blow out was in a city instead of the middle of nowhere, (2) we found a tire store OPEN and with the type of tire we needed...the last time we bought a new tire it was over $200 because it was a "special make" because our car was a newer model...now they make the one we need and we don't have to go to a dealer & (3) the salesman gave us two tires for the price of one. It was a good lesson for the kids to learn to "Give thanks in ALL things."

After that we headed to San Antonio (again). We got here and the kids wanted to swim. We ate and came back & the water was FREEZING!!!!! They did not seem to mind they just got in and swam (for a very short time). It's really not that late but we are so tired. We have a big day ahead of us tomorrow at Sea World.

Please pray for our safety the rest of the trip and that the weather will stay nice. Check back tomorrow for more "adventure" stories & hopefully pictures. I can't get them to upload.
