Top Ten

We went to San Antonio last week with Brice, Kristin, and Emma Kate! These are my top ten favorite things about our trip:

1. Sea World! The kids loved it, but I think the adults loved it just as much. We went to all of the shows, visited most of the sea friends, the boys rode a couple of rides, I rode a water ride with them, and then we played in the kiddie splash park before leaving.





2. The Riverwalk! I hadn't been to San Antonio since I was a kid so I didn't remember much about the Riverwalk, but I thought it was great. I love how there is so much going on in some parts and then it is quiet and pretty in other parts.

3. The Food! We ate some really good food mostly on the Riverwalk. My favorite was Saltgrass, but we ate at an Italian place on the Riverwalk called Paesanos that was really good too.

4. The Hotel! We stayed at the Hyatt Regency right on the Riverwalk and the best part is that I used priceline.com to bid for our rooms and got them for only $70/night! I loved that we didn't have to load up the car everytime we went to eat...we just walked right out onto the Riverwalk and there was plenty to do.

5. The Boat Ride! Will was obsessed with watching the boats go by and he really thought it was cool when we got to actually ride one. We had a funny boat captain that also made it a lot of fun.


6. Church! When we first got on our boat, we turned a corner and there was church going on right there on the river on a Friday night. I thought it was so cool. On one side there was a stage with a worship band sing "Mighty to Save" and on the other side all the people were on these steps worshipping. And all the boats were going right through it! After we got off of the boat, we walked over to the church and stayed for a few songs.



7. Ben & Jerry's! I looove Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream and they had a shop right across the street from our hotel. I ate it two nights in a row...oops!

8. Shopping! Kristin and I went to San Marcos one day to shop at the outlet malls. Shopping is always fun for me even when I don't buy anything...but I think I bought a little too much this time! :)

9. Family Time! Of course I always love hanging out with my boys.


10. Friend Time! We had a really fun time with the Fosters. I'm sure we'll do it again soon...but we'll need more than one car next time. And no, I'm not hinting that I'm pregnant...but Kristin is!


So if you can't tell, I thought this was a FABULOUS family vacation and I can't wait to go back. I'm thinking I could take Will every year...or maybe twice a year. :) Chris and I both said that we wish we had stayed longer. I highly recommend it!
