Our "Get-away" pictures...

Thought that I would share a few vacation pictures(only about a third of them)... On the long journey to Texas, we stopped in Missouri to visit Lambert's, "The Home of the Thrown Rolls". Such delicious "southern" food...the rolls were to die for! San Antonio was such a beautiful, fun city (a bit warm ~just "97" degrees a couple of days). It almost felt like we were in another country! Our hotel was located on the lovely Riverwalk. We enjoyed taking long walks and dining at some of the great restaurants there almost every evening(we ate some FABULOUS Mexican food!). We took a riverboat tour one evening at sunset...that might have been romantic! ha! We saw "Remember the Alamo" at IMAX prior to visiting "The Alamo"...I think this made it more meaningful. We visited Market Square one day and enjoyed walking through shops that had a beautiful Mexican flair. We enjoyed a day at Six Flags Fiesta Texas ~ we were able to walk right on the rides without a wait...very cool! Cassie and I visited a beautiful doll shop and picked out all the dolls we wanted. We all played at a neat park one afternoon. Corey saw many lizards and even brought one home to add to his collection. We ended our trip by coming through Louisiana and visiting family. We had a lovely day there...the kids were able to ride 4-wheelers, fish, etc. Scott and Suzanne fixed steaks with all the trimmings for us...thanks,guys, we love you! Monday AM brought us back to reality (there's no place like home!). We thank God for family, friends, fun, summer, and "get-aways"! Hope that you are enjoying your summer!
