Texas!

We were supposed to fly out to San Antonio on Wednesday. Unfortunately there was a delay and Delta put us in a hotel for the night. We were a little bummed, but made the best of it. We ordered chinese, cheesecake, chocolate cake, and watched American Idol! I am so loving quirky little Paul McDonald!

On Thursday we flew to Atlanta {I was keeping my eyes open for HOUSEWIVES} and then on to San Antonio.

We walked from our hotel to the Riverwalk. So much neat stuff to see.

Our hotel is in the top left corner and the Tower of the Americas is in the right corner.

I love a Marriott...almost as good as a Hilton. But not quite.

The Riverwalk is gorgeous. All the greenery and COLOR!

You could hear mariachi bands performing in the restaurants. And because it was St. Patrick's Day you could hear bag pipes mixed in.

Dr. hubby said, "Why are you taking pictures of ducks. There are ducks at home." These are special riverwalk ducks worthy of my picture taking time...trust me. lol


I was so excited to meet up with one of my Scraps Studio Sisters. Her family is so nice. We had never realized we both kids ages 15, 6, and 5. Cool. It felt like we had known each other forever. I love meeting internet friends.

We stopped by RiverCenter Mall on our way back to the hotel. Dr. Hubby couldn't wait to get inside Boot Hill. He came out emptyhanded. I think he is saving his $$$ for the Montblanc store.

The view from the sundeck at our hotel.
We ended the day watching the movie 127 hours from our cozy bed. Not a great movie for relaxation! No wonder James Franco was so exhausted at the Academy Awards. He had just got out of a hole!

I've heard San Antonio is one of the best places to visit. I'm really jealous. I love American Idol this year. The judging is sooo much better and the talent is amazing. Keep taking those pictures. Them's Texas ducks, y'all. Save the Alamo ducks...snap away.

How fun! I love San Antonio - We stayed in the Hilton on the Riverwalk a few years ago - it was soooo much fun. We were there at Christmastime and it was all lit up with lots of Christmas lights. I love the atmosphere down there.
I hope you get to visit The Alamo!

Happy Walking!!

How fun! Love the photo of the Riverwalk with all of the colorful umbrellas...so pretty and spring-like! Cute duck too! =) We have missed so much of American Idol this season. Have several to watch on the DVR, but life has been crazy and work is keeping me hopping the for the next few weeks...ugh!

Have a great time in Texas and enjoy all the sights, sounds and shopping! =)

Love what the doc said about the duck! And I know that movie will stress me out. Glad you're having fun, even if it started out with a delay!
