And We're Back!

It's been a fun weekend. Six Flags Fiesta Texas was a whole lot of fun for the whole family. We went ahead and bought the Flash Passes - completely worth the investment. Rather than waiting 50 minutes for one adult to take 1-2 of the children on a ride, they got to go on a ride immediately while the smallest one or two and the other adult got to go on a more child-size ride. We ended up getting about 20 rides plus at least 90 minutes in the water park - we would have gotten far less had we not done that, if only because of the lines.

For breakfast yesterday, we met up with one of my coworkers who is now distance working from San Antonio. We ate at Las Palapas, which was an outstanding breakfast (really good food and a terrific price - 9 people for under $50). We then went and played for a good 7 hours before finding our way to IHOP for dinner.

This morning, we met Red Hot Mamma and Photog and Mrs. Photog at Mi Tierra for another Mexican Breakfast. Another outstanding meal with terrific company. We left tired but happy.

On the way back was the inevitable stop at Buc-ee's for jerky and fudge. If you've not had Buc-ee's fudge, then you're missing out.

Other than that, it was a rather nondescript ride home, the kids didn't drive me insane, and the wife didn't get mad at my faux road rage.
