A Day in San Antonio

Yesterday we spent the day in San Antonio. It was a delightful day seeing the Alamo and walking along the River Walk.

The Alamo

The kids really wished they could climb this tree. It would have been so much fun!

We had lunch in a sandwich shop that had some fun things in it. Jonathan decided he wanted a picture that looked like he was being hit by a bull. Erin liked the sombrero.

We even took a tour boat on the River which was fun and we heard about some of the history of San Antonio.

In the evening we went to Wayne and Judy Clark's house. Wayne made us baby back ribs and oh, they were so good! Wayne and Judy were the pastor's at the church we went to in Vermont when I was a teenager. It was great to see them again. I am amazed at how God has lined us up with so many people across this nation that we could connect with. He is truly amazing.

Cory and Wayne. Cory was just a baby when we left Vermont. I was reminded that I had babysat the kids a few times. Just as I have aged, they are grown up now too. Cory and his wife are expecting their first baby in December.

Judy and Donice. Donice has three boys. It was great to meet them all.

Me and Judy. We didn't plan on wearing the same color pink, it just happened that way.

Donice brought a puppy she and the kids found. They are hoping to find the owner soon. Erin loved playing with him, his name is Tiger.

Today we are traveling on to Brownsville, Texas. We are not sure if we will cross the border today. Most likely it will be tomorrow or later. Our drive today will be 5-1/2 hours. We will definitely cross the border by the end of the week.
