San Antonio Trip

How was my trip? Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

No, there is too much. There is so much to tell that I find myself unable to work up the energy to do it justice. And really, wouldn't you rather be overwhelmed with pictures than overwhelmed with words?

A few bullets for you:
  • The Drury hotel is awwwwwesome. We got it by luck of the draw, using up some Hotwire credits from an earlier poor experience. This experience more than compensated. Boy, is there a lotta free food at that hotel (BIG breakfast buffet, big happy hour reception, evening sodas and popcorn). One morning Sammy ate six pancakes, a scrambled egg, a full carton of yogurt and a very large banana for breakfast. And I didn't have to track it down or lug it in my bag anywhere. Free food makes traveling with kids easier. So do all the other ameneties there. Recommend.
  • The San Antonio Riverwalk was more lovely than I've ever seen it. I really enjoy the area, and it was better than ever. It was crowded, but in a happy way.
  • The San Antonio Zoo is very fun. The Tiny Tot Nature Spot is great for the little ones. It was quite hot though.
  • Sammy is very proud of his walking abilities.

  • Zack is officially a Museum Person. In the car on the way he asked, "Does this city have any museums? Any museums I've never been to? Are we going to any museums?" I asked if he wanted to go to a museum, to which he responded, "well, uh, yeah," as if I had asked the most ridiculous question ever. Although my husband is a Museum Person, I never have been. I might have to convert now, as I am clearly surrounded.
  • The Witte Museum is very hands-on and makes science fun. Recommend.
  • It takes four pulleys before I am strong enough to hoist my own weight six feet into the air.
  • Even if you know the cantilever will keep you from falling, riding a bicycle on a rope two stories above a river is a little nervewracking.

  • I really did feed Sammy a bowl of salsa with a spoon. He liked it. A prize will be sent to the commenter with the best redneck/Texas/Arizona/Tex-Mex/Mexican Food remark.

  1. This post made me smile. And not just because of the free food and salsa-eating little boy. (will try to come up with clever remark later)
