Texas Trip

Last Christmas my Mom and Dad gave Dustin and I a trip to San Antonio, Texas as a gift to visit my brother, sister-in-law, and baby nephew. So we went the first week in May and had such a wonderful time. It's amazing that being away from family seems like such a long absence, but when you're actually in the same room together, it seems like yesterday. So here's some pics from things we kept busy with.

The Alamo: Historical stop
"Would you wanna see Dustin Hoffman save the Alamo?" (great line from 'While You Were Sleeping')
The Cavern:
We went down about 400 feet into this amazing cavern which was extremely humid. One of my favorite parts of this stop was the group touring in front of our group was a men's chorus and they would stop and sing. It was so gorgeous in the first place because who doesn't love a men's chorus? and also because the acoustics of the cavern completely illuminated the sound and it was beautiful!
Next, dinner at 'Mamacitas' - very much like Los Hermanos. Because it was almost CB's birthday, Dustin told the waiter and out came the sombraro. We all had to take a turn wearing it, of course.
The Riverwalk:
