family trip : Austin & San Antonio Riverwalk.

 photo photo-42edit.jpg

We are back from our trip, sigh. Can we go back? Freeze time? I am sooo grateful for this time we had together, it was honestly perfection. The kids were in heaven, I was in heaven, Chris was in heaven…I mean, it was just wonderful all around. I have so many pictures to sort through and so I am going to split them up a bit. Here are a few from the beginning of our trip. We started off by going to Austin and staying at the Lost Pines. My parent’s gave us this for Christmas last year and honestly I can’t imagine a better gift for our family. They have horseback riding (Aiden & Ainsleigh did this) , a lazy river, soccer, playground, water slide, splash pad…the list goes on! We even got to make s’mores every night! My grateful heart was just singing! 

After staying there for 4 days, we packed up the car and headed to San Antonio! The first day we did the Alamo and that evening on the riverwalk! 

Here are a few pics from this portion of our time!

    Oh this makes me miss Texas so so much! I lived in San Antonio during and after my time in the Air Force and I want to move back so badly, but my husband's job here in Phoenix is providing us with more than double what we would make anywhere else, so we're stuck here for now. I used to work on the Riverwalk…practically LIVED on the Riverwalk. So many memories…

    I remember going to The Alamo (11 years ago) and being disappointed by it having a roof and being built up. I had wanted it to be out in the open and raw like I pictured it. Still so cool though!

  11. Marta Vodrey says:

  24. Nirupama says:

    We go to the Hill Country resort outside of San Antonio every few months and just love it too. It is kind of like a twin of Lost Pines. We actually live closer to Lost Pines, but that place has become our own. The smell of woodsmoke there just settles my soul.
