San Antonio TEXAS!!!

The Faith Tabernacle Apostolic Church young people took a trip to the fabulous San Antonio, Texas this past weekend!  We had a blast!

Thursday the bus left at 7am and we arrived at the Riverwalk Mall at 12:30pm.  We saw the Alamo IMAX and then headed straight to the Alamo for some perspective.  It was not my first time for the IMAX or the Alamo, but every time is a reminder of how brave the men were who fought for our freedom.  Thank God for real men!

This was followed up with a boat trip around San Antonio's Riverwalk.  My two favorite buildings are the one with gargoyles (not sure why!) and the one that is built so that when you are in front of it, it looks like a wall with no sides to support it!  Loved the story about the 3 story hotel that was moved 6 blocks away to make room for a MUCH larger hotel.  It was a historical building, so it couldn't be torn down.  It had to be moved in 1 piece.  It took several days to move it!

We finished off the night with supper at Mi Tierra's.  It was delicious.  We checked into the KOA and unloaded the bus.

Friday morning dawned bright and early.  We loaded up on the bus and headed to FIESTA Six Flags!  We spent the ENTIRE day there.  The only rides I rode were the two water rides (remember Thunder River and the Bamboo Shoot at Astroworld?  Same thing!).  I am afraid of heights so most rides are NOT my thing.  But I love to people watch, so I was a happy camper.  The weather was perfect.  I had a brisket sandwich for lunch and a funnel cake for dinner!  :)  We had pizza delivered when we got back to the KOA that night.

Saturday morning meant re-loading the bus and heading of to La Cantera and The Rim for some shopping!  Kirstyn was able to find a couple of really cute outfits for her upcoming Engagement Shoot and Malissia found a jumper for the Spring PicNic!  Whew!  That's a lot less sewing for me!  :)

The trip home was relatively uneventful.  Everyone was tired, but kinda sad to see it end.  I'll try to get my hands on some pictures to share.  My only sad thought the entire weekend was that Ryan wasn't there with us.  I truly missed him.

Last of all, yesterday was the Christening for baby Zoey.  It was a really sweet service and I was glad to be there to support my little family!  Zoey was happy and quiet all service (she even napped on my shoulder for a bit).  Halen was his cheerful little self and teased Malissia who REALLY wanted to hold him.  :)  She'll win him over, yet!

It was a great weekend, but I am still tired.  The garage sale is this weekend, so I'll be really busy when I'm not in church or at work!  Maybe I'll get to rest next weekend!  Also, the Game On is going to begin Wednesday.  I'm ready to get back on the band wagon and lose some weight!  :)  Wish me luck!

K.  Bye, now.
