Texas Vacation - San Antonio

We stayed in San Antonio for three nights and spent one day at Schlitterbahn. It was blistering hot, but we all had a good time.

We also went to the Alamo and spent some time on the Riverwalk. One of the interesting things about being in Texas is the huge amount of Texas history taught in school. Almost a greater amount than US history.

The Riverwalk was beautiful, but hot. One of the neat things about the Riverwalk is that you can go down many different channels and have a different experience each time.

Our last day we went to the San Antonio Zoo. Surprisingly the animals were mostly active, especially our four!

One of the highlights for us when we go to zoos is to see all of the Australian animals. Here is a Cassowary. Seriously ugly birds, but really cool as well!

Our drive home felt long. Jenny always likes this church, but because of the flow of traffic never really gets to take a picture, luckily this trip she got to take many. (Did I mention how long the trip was? Traffic was a beast!)

This was Jared's expression for the greater part of the trip home. We must not have been giving him enough to eat!!!

The river walk was probably similar to the one we experienced with you at the Gaylord, right?

Love you guys!!!
