San Antonio

We just got home from three amazing days in San Antonio, TX (in case you were wondering where SA is). Home of the Alamo, SeaWorld, Fiesta Texas, the Spurs, etc. It was a trip just for fun and relaxation...which we haven't done in two or three years. We stayed in a hotel on the infamous riverwalk in downtown San Antonio and never got our car out until we left! I LOVE public transportation in SA!

We walked a good bit, took the VIA trolley and the SA bus to where ever we were going. I always forget that most of the places I want to visit in SA are all in one little area. We visited Market Square and Mi Tierra, walked by the Alamo...too many tourists(Ha), La Villita and took in a movie at the Rivercenter Mall. Just basically did whatever we wanted. Siestas were in order every day, and our last night there we didn't even leave the pizza delivery men!

On the way home we stopped in San Marcos to do a little shopping is not my bag really, but I endured and got through it. Whew!

Now I must begin in earnest to clean house before the oldest son and his family get here for the Fourth...but he is bringing the youngest grandson, so that will make it fun. We are going to celebrate the oldest grandson's birthday a few days early along with allowing said grandson and his dad to "blow stuff up" with fireworks. Since we live out in the county, it is legal for them to do this here!

It should be fun,I'm looking forward to making birthday cupcakes that will, if they turn out even close to the pictures I've seen, resemble small servings of spaghetti and meatballs...more about this later, and maybe even pictures if I can get someone to show me how to upload them. Anyway, I should begin the cleaning, so the fun can begin.

One of my best girlfriends lives in SA and I'm a major fan of Mi Tierra's. I'm with you all the way... Staying on the Riverwalk transports you to another world. I love it. I always drive down so that I can run over to Austin to give our son a peck on the forehead and load the car with Central Market goodies (which we don't have here) & the Older Austin location has the best of the best.

So I usually buy meats, fish, pork & lamb to last 3-4 months. Then, head back to SA w/ lots of dry ice in the coolers; spend the night, then hit my favorite Mexican Imports place in Boerne, Tx that's just off I-10, on my way home.

I did it for so many years for soccer tournaments, I can almost do it blindfolded now.

Anyway, I'm so glad to hear that you had a wonderful little quickie trip to the Alamo City.
