I wish we would have had events like this when we were kids. My parents always had to work so we never really went anywhere. One spring break I went with my grandparents, aunt and uncle and my cousins to San Antonio. We got to go to Sea World, and I fell in love and have been back many times. We also went to Fiesta Texas. That was really the only spring break trip I ever took. I always just used the week to sleep late and do nothing.
