She was lost.
In the house.
I had never been in a home where a person could get lost. All our homes have been tiny. I mean, we're in base housing. Space isn't exactly something we get a lot of. Unless you're a high ranking officer. Which Tom is not.
Oh man. Was she going to jump out at me like in a horror film?
I followed her voice and found her in the massive shower.
"This is almost as big as my ROOM at home!" Natalie shrieked.
It's kind of true. Again. We're in base housing.
We were staying at La Casa Elegante San Antonio for our family reunion. We were the first ones to arrive so we checked out the entire house. Tommy didn't really admire the rooms. He was all, "What's the WiFi password?" As soon as he found it, he plopped down on a couch and was on his phone.
But Natalie and I? We were like that scene in Annie:
Only without all the servants. And obviously the house wasn't a mansion. But still, the house was beautiful. I fell in love with the formal living room and then marveled at the fact that there were TWO living rooms. Two!
We had fun with the formal living room with this short video:
(Sorry it's so large. I tried to make it small and then the entire thing went away. So I gave up.)
Another hit with the kids? The pool out back. There's a diving board, so the kids had a blast jumping off. Tommy even left the INTERNET to swim. For a teenager, this is a big deal.
You can even have a party by the pool in the tiki house.
If the giant shower frightens you, enjoy a bath and pretend this guy isn't staring at you while you do so:
So if you're looking for a place in San Antonio for a reunion, check out La Casa Elegante. (You can LIKE them on Facebook as well.)
(And no, this isn't a sponsored post. This middle class girl was just super impressed to know that some people live in homes where children can get lost. And have giant showers.)
