Adventures of a Family Vacation
A Road trip to San Antonio
We Got Married!!! So naturally we decide that we want to take sometime off from reality and as a family go on a nice little vacation.
After going back and forward we decide on a few days in San Antonio. San Antonio has something for the entire family.
Michael, my HUSBAND, wanted to make the most out of our trip so he thought it would be a good idea to leave Thursday night after we got off. That way we can drive down(5hrs) check in that night and have the next full day.
On the other side of this decision is me. Just smiling, nodding and thinking it all sounds simple and easy to accomplish.
We all know better than that, including me currently as I am nodding and smiling.
Michael makes it home by 630.
By the time we pack the car and we’re on our way it’s 845.
We’re still an hour out because Decatur (our fur baby!) has to be taken 45minutes out of the way to his “aunts” house.
At 930 we drop Decatur off, settle him in, and we are on our way.
This is where our fun begins y’all.
Michael decides that it would be quicker to take the highway instead of the major freeway that leads straight there. At this point I’m no longer on the other side of these decisions just nodding and smiling.
I’m side eyeing hardcore.
Michael volunteers to drive the first part of the way while I get a little rest. All I have to do is just drive the 2nd part while he does the same.
Well, there I am sleeping my worries away when I hear a loud bang as if someone took a bat to the car. Simultaneously I hear Michael dropping “F” bombs everywhere.
I jolt out of my sleep in “kick ass” mode.
I look around and Michael is still driving like the past few seconds haven’t happened.
So in my calmest adrenaline spiked voice I ask “What the fuck happened?”
He replies “oh, a deer hit the side of the car” like it’s a normal everyday occurrence!
Of course I have questions “why did the deer hit the car?” “Is he still alive” “why is this such a normalcy to you!?”.
His reply to all of these questions is “that deer was an asshole”.
We legit have dents in the side of our car and later decide to take the main highway since we kept seeing deer.
Here is to marriage and happily ever after.
