15-27 June 2014
For those of you who have been asking, I am in fact, still in the Army and we were in San Antonio, TX for these two weeks due to work. But that doesn't mean I won't try to get all I can out of the trip
San Antonio has some special meaning to Curt and I since we got married there so it wouldn't be a right to come and not hit the Riverwalk and the Casa Rio. We ate there after we got married and this time we got to take Emma with us. She wasn't even bothered by the little baby ducks that walked all around our table.
And of course you can't go downtown without snapping a shot of the Alamo.
Another favorite of ours is tubing down the Guadalupe. I had a groupon to do it for next to nothing and we had a pretty nice little Saturday floating down the river for three hours. At first the weather didn't look promising but it cleared up enough for the turtles to come and tarzan too!
We had a great time catching up with some folks from various stages in our lives. We hit Aldaco's restaurant with Missy and Roland and met Diana Loffgren and her son, Ryan at the Magnolia House. I would have gone back again if they made dinner but instead I had to be satisfied with my red velvet waffle.
Curt and I also had Paesano's Italian restaurant and dinner at the Alamo Draft House theater while watching 22 Jump Street.
I even got another trip to the Majestic Theater to see the Broadway Across America show, Sister Act. To warm up for the show we had some San Antonio staples of chips and salsa with a mango margarita.
Our last night we had some wine, beer and cheese and the Boiler House after wandering around the Pearl Brewery area and then had dinner at Demo's Greek restaurant.
We are now 10 pounds heavier and ready to head home to El Paso.
