Texas Day 3

On April 14, 2014 - we fit in a few different things.

First we went to a museum (again, being that was a LONG time ago....I can't remember what it was but it was a type of science museum...I think):

We also did a tour of the Riverwalk by boat - wish I could give you details about these pictures....but just ooh and ahh over them:

We also went to the Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum - which Makenna seemed to really like - she still brings up different things she saw here as topics of conversation.

The Alamo

The next day (April 13, 2014,) we went sight seeing in downtown San Antonio, we went along the Riverwalk, and to the Alamo.  I wish I could tell you about some of the sites but since I'm over a year behind in posting this - you'll just have to ooh and ahh over the scenery.

The Alamo

Part of the Riverwalk - It's very long!

This was one of my favorite moments - my nephew Eli was kneeling (squatting) in front of a crucified Christ hanging inside a church.  I noticed this and snapped a picture.  He then came up to his mom and said, "Mom, the dead Jesus told me to be good."  - it was an awesome comment~!

Ended our time together (and day,) by taking a trip up to the temple - couldn't go in as it was a Sunday but at least I got to see it (somewhat)


(Okay - I'm out of excuses of why I'm not diligently updating - slothfulness, laziness, and life are my reasons).

Back in April of 2014 (yes 2014~!)  We went to Texas for "Spring Break" and to visit my brother Jared, sister-in-law Jessica and my niece and nephew (Abbie & Eli).  They moved down there in 2013 for Jared's job.  So Chris, loving San Antonio, decided we'd go down for a visit to see the sites, and since Jared and family only live about an hour or so from there, they came down to see the sites with us.

First up was Natural Bridge Caverns (photo's taken on 4/12/14):

Then we moved on to the San Antonio Zoo

Clouded Leopard

Black-handed Spider Monkey

 The kids had a good laugh about this hippo.  As it was swimming buy it "relieved" itself and there was poop, and hay, and grass floating all around it after - which the kids thought was the funniest thing at the zoo

The kids got to feed these birds with little cups of food
