The Alamo

We really had a great time in San Antonio!  Not too many touristy things, which is fine by me.  The one really touristy thing we did was visit the Alamo.  I don't know if I've just matured or if history is just starting to mean something to me, but I was very affected by it & found myself wanting to know more.  Even though I had been there before (about 12 years ago), I didn't realize that what we call the Alamo was just a building in the Alamo.  And a tiny one at that.  The Alamo was actually a compound.  We hung around & listened to a story teller explain some of the Alamo's history & we wandered around the grounds.  There were so many people there (being spring break & all) that I left feeling like I missed something.  A few days later we ended up watching the John Wayne version of the Alamo & I kinda pieced it together.  What a sad, sad event. 
We also walked along the River Walk.  That I do remember.  It's beautiful down there!  We ate at The County Line & I had the best pork ribs & black eyed peas ever. 
Kendall's favorite photo.  The girl who used to shy away from the camera kinda enjoys it now.  Nice change!

This post wouldn't be complete without a photo of our adorable new great nephew, Jaxson:
Not the best photo...I forgot how fast babies move...dang!  He's our niece Aimee's son.  We spent a lot of time with him this week.  Kendall says he adores her.  It's true, too!

Many more things to tell you about, but I have just a few hours left of my time off & well, I'm on to other things!  Have a beautiful day!
