Our San Antonio Trip!

Hey friends! It's been a while!  We got back from San Antonio a couple of weeks ago and it's been a whirlwind since.....Many of our friends have asked for recommendations for their upcoming trip--- so here it is!

Day One:  River Walk
We arrived in San Antonio after 4pm.  Checked into our hotel and headed over to the River Walk.  Our first stop was at a little restaurant, Cafe Ole.. We sat along the river and enjoyed Happy Hour with chips & queso and margaritas!  Afterwards, we walked along the river until we got tired and then hopped on a Rio Cruise River Boat.  The tour was very enjoyable and the perfect duration for a 3 year old's attention span-- (about 30 minutes.)  Stopped for fro-yo before heading back to the hotel.  

I can't say enough good things about this place... this was the highlight of our trip!  We showed up around 10am and drove through the ranch twice!  They give you one bag of food at the gate, but we decided to purchase one more just in case.  Glad we did!  Make sure to have enough storage on your phone to record your kiddos feeding the Emus... hilarious!!

The rest of our day was spent visiting family in Austin.  Never realized how close the two cities were!

Day Three:  The Alamo & Kiddie Park & Carriage Ride
Toured the grounds for a little over an hour.. Unfortunately, we did not get to participate in the audio tour because little Evie wanted to run through the place!  We couldn't get her away from the beautiful fountain in the courtyard.

Next, was the Kiddie Park.  It's an amusement park where toddlers can ride everything.  You pay $13 for a bracelet and the kiddos just hop from ride-to-ride.  Adults can ride the carousel for free.  Great pre-nap activity!  

After naps, we took a Carriage ride tour around the downtown area.  Of course Miss Evangelene picked the Cinderella themed carriage!

San Antonio is a wonderful city and we can't wait for our next trip! We stayed at the Crockett Hotel which is only steps away from the Alamo. Perfect location, very friendly staff and their free breakfast is hard to beat.  

We were so excited to use the waffle maker every morning!

What's the saying? If travel were free, you'd never see me again!  That's exactly how we feel.  :)

Interior Design Book Roundup!

One of my favorite presents to give and receive is an interior design book.  They are great accessories for coffee tables/shelves but more importantly, helpful sources of inspiration when you are needing to tszuj up a room!  Here are my picks...I cannot wait to get my paws on the newest Domino book!
