This morning I shared the following picture on our Facebook page and within a few hours it had received over 2 thousand likes! I mean sure, he’s a cute kid, but over 2 thousand likes for a picture of a kid eating a waffle?!?

This weekend we went to one of our favorite hotels for a little rest and relaxation, the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country. It doesn’t matter if you have a child with special needs, or a typical child, this hotel has you covered!
