My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this past week and I wanted to do something special for her. Our plans were to go out of state to do some dreambuilding for retirement in Montana. Life and job got in the way of those plans so we decided to stay local. We took our 5 children to the Aerosmith concert to the Cynthia Woods Pavillion In The Woodlands Texas on Monday. Tuesday, The day of our anniversary7 we drove to New Braunfels to see what it was all about. Did not stay long and headed to the JW Marriott resort in San Antonio Hill Country. It was AA++ from there on. The staff was as remarkable as the property itself.. They upgraded us to a suite with a double balcony ovrelooking Hill Country. We relaxed by the pool, Hung out on our Patio, had an Awesome dinner at the The CLub House. We were sad to leave the next day but we had things to do.We had dinner on the waterway in San Antonio at Manhattan Mexico before driving back to the Woodlands. Thursday night after working all day, we drove to Stafford Texas to the RED Neck Country Club and saw Collective Soul perform. Friday, My wife checked into The Woodlands Marriott and They upgraded us to a suite overlooking The Woodlands and Pavilion for our anniversary. That evening we went to see REO Speedwagon and Chicago perform at The Pavilion. Saturday I had to work, so my wife shopped and looked around this vacation spot 10 minutes from our home! Sunday we hung out by the pool and went to see KISS/ DEF Leppard perform. It was great having a blast from the past. The Staff at the Woodlands Marriott are top notch and give me incentive of what to bring to my customer service level where I work. Awesome week without having to Travel
