No trip to San Antonio would be complete without visiting the Alamo.
Funny story about this picture...I had to have it taken 2 times each by 2 different strangers. The first couple of takes were a bit windblown. My hair looked like the lead singer of the 80's band, A Flock of Seagulls. If you don't know what he looked like, you should google it. You'll totally understand my "do" on the first couple of takes and have a good giggle. I waited for the first "photographer" couple to leave, then asked more strangers to take another picture. This time, I wore my sunglasses on my head to hold my unruly hair back and thwart the efforts of the wind to ruin my family picture. Anyway, this was the best shot we got.
This is a gorgeous old hotel in downtown. The details on the building were incredible.
Monument in front of the Alamo remembering those who gave their lives in the battle at the Alamo.
Mosaic of San Antonio on the way to the River Walk by the Hyatt in downtown.
Gorgeous glass pumpkins at a glass shop on the River Walk. I wish I would have checked into buying one of these beauties, but I was afraid to ask the cost. So, I admired them from afar.
My little sweetie along the River Walk. We enjoyed a pizza dinner at one of the restaurants here as well. We enjoyed eating al fresco on the River Walk.
Finally, one of the highlights of the trip was getting to introduce my kiddos to their great aunt whom I hadn't seen in almost 12 years. We got to take her to lunch and spend some time catching up. It was a real treat for all of us. So, that's what we've been up to this week... what about you?
