Vacation Part 3

After our quick dash to San Antonio, we headed back to Grandma and Grandpa's to get one last day in and a visit to the Fort Worth Stockyards. Temperatures had cooled a bit, preventing Allison and Eric from swimming, so after the Stockyards, we went to my favorite restaurant, Anamia's. The rest of the afternoon was spent resting, reading and for one in particular, playing DS. The next day, we arrived home -- allergies back in full force!

Vacation Part 2 -- San Antonio

Scott and I have been talking about getting back to San Antonio for years. We decided that this was the year to do it! We knew it would have to be short, but we really wanted Allison to get a taste of a different city this time around.

While our visit was short, we managed to get in a visit to the Market Square, Mi Tierra (a yummy Tex Mex restaurant), and the Alamo -- oh, and a few shops (who can forget the shopping?). Of course, no visit to San Antonio would be complete without going to the Riverwalk and taking a boat cruise.

Vacation Part 1

I know that I haven't done anything with this in a while, but summer is here and we are already back from our main vacation! I have lots of pics to share from the past few months and some pretty fun memories too!

We headed out early Friday evening, spent the night in Arkansas and then made our first planned stop in Canton, TX. They have a HUGE flea market that goes on one weekend a month. We got lucky and was able to hit that weekend! I hadn't been able to do this event in about four years, so I was pretty happy. We found things for everyone (even Allison's friend, Holly) except me. But I was just happy to get to go!

We then headed west to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. We had a great time visiting Grandma and Grandpa and their new apartment in Texas! We swam and went to the new observation area at the airport (which is very cool) and had an early celebration for Scott's birthday.
