We did the necessary San Antonio things on Monday.
Alamo (where the kids had fun with the "can you find?" paper from the front desk):
Gabe used his $15 souvenir money on this:
Shockingly, Jane was accidentally bleeding from that super safe souvenir within the hour. (nothing violent, just dumb)
I highly recommend the boat tour through San Antonio's famous riverwalk:
On Tuesday, people who had barfed in the night (Emma and Gabe) stayed home with Ryan and had their first brush with Monty Python and the Holy Grail, while the rest of us went to a virtually empty children's museum:
On Wednesday, we hit the awesomest outdoor African safari park, where the inmates got VERY close:
Super, super fun!
We also hit the famous Rudy's BBQ, where it was super fancy. Note the "plates":
It was delicious and Matt sent us home with a bottle of their yummy sauce, so we can have a little Texas all year long.
When I download my regular camera shots, I'll have more pictures of my brother Sam and his fun wife Stephanie, who hung out with us in both Dallas and San Antonio.
Watching cousins play together, long talks at night with adults, and an accidental 6.8 mile run with Matt were other highlights.
Why, oh why, does 60% of my siblings live on the other side of the country??
