My oldest child is in 8th grade and after his regular football season ended, he played on a team with kids from all over Massachusetts. Through a series of games, they won their way into the final four out of 64 teams from all over the country. This past weekend, we decided the house renovations can wait. Instead of purchasing a new front door, or having plans drawn up for our portico, we all flew down to San Antonio, Texas for the championship games.
Dang, we need a new front door. But an opportunity to make some fun memories as a family, give my kids a new experience, take them someplace they've never been (nor I!) and open up their eyes to the world? For that I will happily trade the next big house project in the queue.
The US Army All American Bowl at the Alamodome
The Riverwalk in downtown San Antonio….so pretty!
"Dad…..Mom's taking pictures of weird stuff again."
The front door project? It'll get done sometime this year. In the meantime….how about a little of this?
