Our weekend jaunt to San Antonio

My father in law came down to visit for hubby's birthday (Mr. Life Crafts and Whatever is the big 2-8 today). We packed up the heathens and drove down to San Antonio for the weekend. 

Miss Avers did pretty good on the 5 hour drive. Not bad for an 8 month old. Here she is, just chillaxing.

Here is a pic of hubby and myself in front of the Alamo. Not too shabby for a self portrait, huh?

And a pic of my older girls.

I didn't notice it until I got home and was looking at the pic, but hubby and his dad matched their clothes unintentionally. Just flip flopped.

We did a LOT of walking around. Sucks that my pedometer wasn't working right so I wasn't able to see how many steps I took. Lamesauce.

We took the girls to the RainForest Cafe. Pretty cool. Food was whatever, but you definitely pay for the atmosphere.

We hit up Ripley's Believe it or Not and the wax museum....

where I totally tried to make out with Johnny Depp....

and I tried to avoid getting run over by the Beverly Hillbillies.

How fun! I haven't been to a Ripley's museum in years. Probably, when I was your girls ages.

Was it super crazy hot?? When we used to go we always went shopping at some outdoor place... a farmers market, maybe? It was huge. I remember coming home with all kinds of random stuff, including a chess set and a giant plaster giraffe lawn ornament.

Ava looks more and more like her papa!

So, I'm working on actually posting on blogs that I totally stalk-

I'm curious, are you goin' to tell us what tattoo you got last Sunday??

if not, that's cool too...

Looks like you guys had a great time! I love San An....because they are so close to the outlets at San Marcus which is like heaven for me :) little Ava is such a good baby, she always is so chill in every picture! Such a cutie!! I could eat those plump baby cheeks!

The artist was sick, so we rescheduled for I think May 9th. Bummed, but what can you do.

Man...I wanna make out with shark eyed Depp. He looks sexy-scary. Lois like you had a blast girl!

That totally sucks! I'm sorry! Well, at least you got in "relatively" quickly?

Great photos - I love the fuzzy edges you have around them. Must learn to be more creative with my photos!
