We decided we'd only go out for three nights this time around, since we've never really done more than 1 or 2 at a time to this point... and that was a good call. Three nights was just right.
We ate out for every meal.
We did a lot of walking.
We took boat ride tours and cave tours and even an accidental hotel tour (due to getting turned around and a little lost in the huge hotel where we stayed).
It was a good time, my Littles were better than we could have hoped, the food was all excellent, the weather held out, and the drive down and back wasn't too bad.
First Spring Break Road Trip = A+
|Our first day in SA was St. Patrick's Day|
|The view from the balcony the first day|
|It rained almost the entire afternoon|
|At this restaurant, all they had on the table was margarine, so we asked our server for some|
real butter... and what we got was a chunk from the kitchen that they cooked with
(featured there in the center of the table on the dark blue plate)
|Our second days' excursion was the Natural Bridge Caverns, worthy of their own post, so|
check back later for pics from the underground tour!
|We moved to a new room the second day due to the insane amount of noise off the river, |
and Audrey had the first nap in the big bed.
|Our hotel also featured a "heated" pool, and these goofballs swam until their lips were blue|
and they were shivering... two days in a row.
|One of the kids' favorite parts of our trip: the boat tour the second night|
|Of course, we visited the Alamo, though the line was so incredibly long to get inside that we|
kept to the outside grounds
|We visited a decrepit children's museum that was moving locations at the end of the month|
and had thus fallen into disrepair... but there was still some cool art to be seen...
|...and this... so it wasn't a total bummer.|
|And you know this Mama was thrilled to find her girl like this!|
|Our last afternoon on the river and... baby ducklings!|
|The morning before we hit the road, the kids had their breakfast in our private little courtyard|
I think our place missed us... it was quite a Welcome Home.
