San Antonio Weekend

Standard

We drove down to San Antonio a couple of weekends ago and met up with my parents.  We had a fun weekend of swimming, Sea World, and visiting the Witte Museum where our good friend Liz works.

We drove down on a Friday afternoon.  We arrived in time to check in and grab an early dinner with Nana and Granddad.

They had 3 seats with different numbers of pulleys and ropes.  The goal was to sit in a seat and try to pull your own weight upwards and see how the number of pulleys made a difference. Baby Boy was getting some help from Liz while Mommy and Daddy competed to see who could pull themselves the highest.
