Remember the Alamo...and such...

So we all know by now that I'm not a Texan. Granted, I've been here long enough that most people would consider me one but this girl still has Louisiana roots. And always will. But I have also learned through the years that all good Texans MUST visit the Alamo when in San Antonio. It does not matter that it looks the same every single time or even - as Taylor pointed out - that "y'all lost that battle anyway." 

It's still a MUST.

Also, I guess Taylor doesn't find being born in this state reason enough to put herself into that group. It causes Tonto great angst, I can assure you.

But, all those things aside, there were Alamo pics...


...and river walk pics...


...and some Alamo selfies...


...and more riverwalk pics...


...and then we finally realized the sky was turning dark - like pitch black - all around us. Which we only realized when it started raining and we looked up. After two days at theme parks we were clearly fried. :)


So, instead of a morning spend perusing shops for random souvenirs (which is kind of a special kind of hell for me, personally), the girls grabbed cute t-shirts from Joe's Crab Shack and we headed home. In a downpour. Also, the interstate in San Antonio DOES NOT drain, y'all. We drove through standing water for a looooong time. 

But the rain didn't change anything about our weekend being super fun. And these two - along with the  tiny one not pictured - gave us some amazing kickoff to summer memories. :-)
