Trip to San Antonio

We made our first trip back to San Antonio since moving to California. We had a great time catching up with family, friends, past co-workers, and our former neighbors!

We had a fabulous lunch at The Granary 'Cue & Brew at The Pearl. If you live in or visit the San Antonio area, then you need to try this restaurant! You cannot go wrong with barbecue and beer (or root beer in my case), and all of the food and beverages here are very high quality with distinctive flavors. After lunch we had a nice walk on the Museum Reach section of the Riverwalk, including watching the Lock and Dam in action.

One of our former neighbors moved closer to Downtown and is raising 3 chickens in his back yard. Alex enjoyed meeting the chickens and holding Shiloh.

I had planned to make a trip back to San Antonio sooner, but at least I did not forget how to get to my friends' houses. The boys had fun playing and I was so happy to meet sweet Baby B. Alex conquered the smaller pole at the playground:

Overall, our travels went smoothly. The better deal was to fly from San Francisco to Austin. Alex wrote his name with some coaching while we waited to board our plane. In the middle of our trip back to Cali, he got in a good nap.

It was a great vacation and now we are back to our work and school routines.
