San Antonio

So San Antonio.
We went almost 2 weekends ago, and how did we get there?
We flew!!
"why is that so exciting, Chelsea?"
Because it was my first flight. ever. and it. was. amazing.
I think my favorite part was the landing.
Anyways, so with San Antonio, there was an automatic love for the place..
There were so many amazing colors and trees! oh the trees..
We stayed somewhere in the historic district..
We went the first day and ate at a little restaurant called Mad Hatters.
It was simple, delicious, sooo good.
One day we went to Sea World, amazing.
Another day we went to the Alamo (I almost forgot that)
and from there we walked to the Market Square which was probably one of my favorite parts.
Everything was just loaded and SO full of culture, oh my gosh it was phenomenal!
In Market Square, there was this place called Mi Tierra's.
It was "authentic mexican"
It was amazing, I mean, very similar to the mexican we have here at home,
but what made that place really amazing was the building, the decorations, the massive wall mural, the lights, the music, the people.
It was pretty crazy how close we were to Jordan, but couldn't see him..
San Antonio, I love you.
And guess what!
We get to go back September 23rd (which happens to be Miss River's 1st birthday!)
for Jordan's actual basic training graduation!
Oh I'm so excited to get to see him...
he writes us pretty often, and it's always entertaining to read what he says.
Anyways, so if you ever have the chance to visit San Antonio, jump on it!

So we were having a little fun on the River Walk :)

This is the sweet little stray kitten we named Vanilla.
