Lunch at the Lone Star Cafe. This is what the OnlyChild ordered (chicken fried chicken - we were curious):
And this is what I ordered (and it was delicious):
Cathedral of San Fernando:
At La Villita:
The conference wrap-up party was held at Sunset Station:
There was a DJ inside and a country band outside in the Pavilion
Here's my Ruffled Skirt:
The next day we went to the Alamo. Very cool.
On Monday we headed up to Quarry Market to go cowboy boot shopping. We also spent some time at the University Co-op Store. The OnlyChild bought herself a monkey.
He wholeheartedly approved of these boots at Lucchese:
On Tuesday, we went to the Texas Buckhorn Museum. I already posted a few pictures from my cellphone so these are photos the OnlyChild took. Her camera battery died just as we got in the door so she also had to use her phone.
We left on Wednesday...after going to mass at St. Joseph's Church, doing a little shoe shopping (I bought some yellow shoes that were on sale!), and seeing the Alamo movie at the IMAX (which we really should have seen before going to the Alamo).
And then we headed to the airport...and you know the rest of that long and painful story.
So, there you have it. Our San Antonio adventure in a nutshell. It was fun. It was hot. It feels like it was months ago but I've only been home for three days. Crazy.
