SA Working Vaca: Part II

Today was fun and full of exploring! The alarm went off at 6:30 this morning and we started our day! My morning consisted of follicles and fruit loops--I had a doctors appointment this morning in big ole SA and Cody had to take out the babies and get breakfast! Dr. Karges wanted a follow up ultrasound on one of my growing follicles so I found a NaPro doctor out here and they fit me right in this morning! After the appointment, I came back and the crew was cleaning up the breakfast all that was left was this:
Kid at heart... So it was good! (And sugary) :p

Some kid pushed all the elevator buttons when Cody got on... He looked at the kid and said, "REALLY!!???" When it got to the very next floor the kid took off running! Ha Ha Ha! That's what he would have done as a kid too! I just know it!!

Then I explored the city and got a mani and pedi 
It's really HOT pink but doesn't look like it from the pic! Both definitely needed! 
Cody was home when I returned (2:30 woohoo) so we got ready and headed out to the other four missions in San Antonio- we saw The Alamo the first day but wanted to see the others! We started at San José and it was gorgeous! 

Simply. Breathtaking! Loved this one! We spent about an hour at this mission.

Then we headed to Mission Conceptìon. It was a lot smaller but still beautiful:

It's so refreshing to be in a city and surrounded by your faith! We not only visited, we prayed and spent some time in quiet adoration!

We had to make 1 more mission before the close of day (5:00) so we sped over to Missiom San Juan- it seemed permanently closed but had some neat features, none the less!

Stations in the limestone 

And we ended our visit with a local favorite (per trip advisor) Big Bib BBQ- yum! 
They gave us 3 samples since we were newbies! Loaded potato casserole, sweet potato casserole, and chili beans! 

If you are ever a prisoner- I highly suggest getting the sweet potato casserole as your last meal- to DIE for (no pun intended lol)!!! I ordered it as a side to my brisket sandwhich and couldn't even finish my plate! So delish!!
Never quite looks as good as it tastes! 
It was a good thing we were in the hood- Cody loves kool-aid- made with an entire 5 lb bag of sugar- he had his choice of "red or purple" flavors lol 
(Red or purple is what the people at mcdonalds would call the flavored drinks when Cody worked there- it was always an inside joke between us)!!

Well that's all folks! Chao for now from San An! 


SA Working Vaca

So hubby and I wanted to take a little vacation to San Antonio- it's so special there...but we didn't have the money this month. Lo and behold he was asked last week to go to San Antonio this week! Since I'm off for the summer I decided to tag along- that way when he gets off work we can explore the city! 

Duke and Ruby were excited to go bye bye yesterday- by had no clue it would be for 3.5 hrs- 
He was NOT happy with me when we arrived! 

We met Cody later in the afternoon after he got off of work and we headed to Rosario's Mexican restaurant. It came highly reccomended by his team member from here and BOY was is yummy 
I went balls to the wall like I do every vaca and had a sangria and fajitas! (Speaking of going over board I did it again tonight!-sheesh!) but this place had cool girly decor and I will def revisit 
This morning me and the babes slept in and it was nice to not have to take calls or meet appointments - no type of vaca!

After we woke up and decided to get presentable I suprised the dogs....well I OWED the dogs a trip to petco from that horrible car ride yesterday- and we had fun 
Of course he wore yoda ears the ENTIRE time we were there and they ended up picking out the treats they wanted 
Ruby had a good time riding along
Then we got them some new harnesses- duke always had a collar but he chokes himself with excitement so I wanted to try it for him and he's doing pretty good 
He was MUCH happier after this bye bye 
And so was miss priss 
Cody walked in early today so we left to go to the river walk about 3:30 and had fun by making our first stop the Rocky Mountain Chocolate factory! Chips, Kiwi, apricot, and pineapple are good dipped in chocolate 
Next we had to kick off our trip to the river with a tour of The Alamo
And had to (of course) ride the river boat tour 
And we ended dinner by going all out AGAIN - but this time at a river walk restaurant called:Boudro's. Heavenly and expensive... But worth it 

Over all the doggies are enjoying their stay
And so are we! Bye bye for now from San Antonio!
