San Antonio

One of my favorite places to visit in Texas is San Antonio.  Tyler and I were feeling a little overwhelmed with living out of a suitcase and sleeping on couches and decided we wanted to get away for a few days.  San Antonio is only a 5 hour drive from home so we decided to go there.  We planned on staying at a hotel on the Riverwalk but my uncle insisted that we stay at his apartment since he was going to be out of town.  We couldn’t resist a free place to stay so said yes.  The first night we got there we headed down to the Riverwalk for dinner and site seeing.  We ate at Dick’s Last Resort because Tyler had never been there and had a great time.  We then walked around a bit, took some pictures, and got candy apples and ice cream for a treat.  We walked over to the Alamo and took lots of pictures there and then headed back to my uncles.  The next morning we headed to Sea World.  They have a “Here’s to the Heroes” program and give military members and their dependents free admission for a day (I think once a year is all you can use the deal).  We didn’t take our camera but had a great time.  We arrived shortly before the Shamu show so we darted through the park to make it on time.  We watched the show and then went and rode a roller coaster.  We ate some ice cream, watched another show and then fed the dolphins!  What a neat experience!  We were pooped after the day was over so went home to take a nap before heading to my Aunt’s house for dinner.  We ended up staying the night at my aunt’s so we could spend time with her, my cousin, and my cousin’s daughter before heading back home.  I hated only having  a few days to spend in San Antonio but we had to get back home to spend time with everyone else!
