Family beach vacation was granted. It was an awesome beach holiday. Darling daughter was very happy that we were able to go to the beach this summer and had a great trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama. We left Texas Saturday morning, stopped in Slidell, Louisiana to spend the night, then headed to Gulf Shores the next day. It was a very long drive but it was worth it. We enjoyed our beach time and exploring during the five days stay.
It was a very nice vacation spent in Arkansas. Lots of driving (me the whole time) but it was a great experience. We went to visit caves in Eureka Springs and drove through the Ozark National Forest on our way to Russellville and spent the night there before heading home the next day. DD got a “motion sickness” for a bit while we were driving through the Ozark mountain’s winding roads. We were in the forest for a while. 😀
Fall Breaks falls on the same time when The Great State Fair of Texas is happening. We get free tickets to the State Fair but we’re not able to go because the family has other plans since my DD started school. So we had to give the free tickets away to friends or family who needs them.
We surely enjoyed this year’s Spring Break. My darling daughter was satisfied with all our adventures we had this week. One of her favorites was our hotel room accommodation in Fort Worth. We did not go back to the hotel where we stayed last year because the room smelled like fried fish. She even called it “fried fish hotel”. Lol
Anyway, we stayed at Hyatt Place Cityview Fort Worth this time. The room rate was $3 higher than the “fried fish hotel”. I grabbed it anyway since we wanted to try to stay in a new hotel this year.
It was a good decision because the room was nice. The living area is big and they gave us two double beds and one sofa bed room. The downside was, the room has a small closet and small bathroom. The front office seems kinda ‘cold’ but we enjoyed staying at Hyatt Place. 🙂
DD even told me she wanted to buy one of the rooms so she can live there. I said hopefully when she finished college and get a high paying job or high earning business in the future. 🙂
