Yesterday I shared Part 1 about this trip. Today I’ll pick up with our adventures just after we left the Alamo:
We didn’t go into the Guinness World Records museum, but we were able to see a few things from the doorway. That’s one tall dude: On our way to find a Rivercruise. Tired before we ever boarded the boat! He fell asleep during the cruise and spent the rest of the evening on my back. Love the Ergo!
San Fernando Cathedral, which is the oldest cathedral in the US. And here’s where the surprise happened. When we finished with San Antonio, instead of checking into a hotel we drove back toward home. We got Mom, Dad, and my boys checked into a hotel just a few minutes from Jessica’s house. Then I left them there and headed for Jessica’s. We sat and chatted for several hours before we just couldn’t stay awake any longer. I woke up to this: She had purchased coffee for me and had it all ready for me to heat up in the morning.
We took her boys over to the hotel and let them all swim for an hour or so.
Then we headed to the man-store of the century: Cabela’s. It is huge! There’s an aquarium inside! And a shooting range! After a couple of hours looking around and playing we ate lunch at Cracker Barrel. I love meatloaf but my family doesn’t, so I took the opportunity to enjoy that meal!! Great trip to San Antonio and we will certainly go back again. (We actually go back later this month for a marriage retreat! I’m thinking Matt needs to try Mi Tierra!)
