I finally carved out a few minutes to blog our family trip to San Antonio! I kept putting it off because I took way too many pictures and wanted to take my time editing but in the end, life just kept going to fast and I really just wanted to share!
I’ll keep this more picture-y than word-y. Isla was actually pretty good for the plane ride part (the part I was scared about). It turns out she’s much more of a lunatic in Mexican restaurants which Texas has plenty ofThe good news is they sell several varieties of margaritas (Coronaritas and “the swirl” were our favorites!) which takes care of most of the embarrassment.
As I was Blogstomping these images I realized 75% of them were taken in Mi Tierra. We ate there twice and it was AMAZING both times! We also ate at a bunch of other places I forgot… mostly I remember drinking a lot of Swirls (frozen margarita & sangria mixture) 😀 and… yeah just that pretty much!
Plus this was like a month ago so I wouldn’t remember anymore, Swirls or no Swirls.
Off to a rough start but hopeful…
‘Maybe if I buy her a fuzzy, pink cat neck pillow she’ll be entertained for 2 hrs and 50 min…’ says Daddy to himself
Hey it’s Mommy just way skinnier!
Her iPad was packed so she just stole this lady’s.
Hotel bed bouncin’
I was counting on beautiful hotel window light. It might be the main reason I tagged along on this business trip. I figured if Isla and I were gonna be trapped in a hotel room for 5-6 hrs a day I would be happy taking portraits with giant windows in a room other than the ones in our house… unfortunately all the beautiful light was blocked by the indoor/outdoor pool! Isla enjoyed the view though
The first Tex Mex restaurant of many… can’t remember the name!
First Swirl of like 28.
7th tantrum of 138.
Please don’t throw my phone across the street…… 😛
Lots of downtime in the hotel. Isla watched Disney Channel (not Jr) – so grown!
Starbucks Banana Walnut Bread. Yum!
She found treasures…
Pictures by Daddy <3
Maybe a nap before dinner will reduce the chance of a meltdown!
Nap didn’t really do the trick… she wanted down and to run wild!
She wins. She always wins 😉
Mariachi paparazzi style…
Ahhhh my swirls!!!!!
They were playing for $8 but this gentlemen gave us a freebie 😉 Who can resist my little señorita??
Well she obviously had to get up and dance to the music!
I was trying to take a picture of the chandelier but I think that lady thought I was taking a picture of her hat. And I was only kind of doing that.
Another day, another photo shoot 😉
Swirls and Coronaritas….
Let’s but on a cute little Mexican dress on her and maybe she’ll calm down or at least blend in.
No pictures inside the Alamo!
A steakhouse that I’ve forgotten the name of but it was awesome! Also, the swirls were good. Sorry it has to be said.
Sprite lover… so scared I’ll take it away!
Back to Mi Tierra!
The boat ride started out pretty good… until she completely lost it at the very end and I was forced to nurse her to keep the other passengers from murdering me. It wasn’t quite dark enough to justify it without so much as a cardigan to cover myself with. But it was an emergency!!!
A new day! A trip to the park before our trip back home!
Getting all her energy out before the plane ride
She seems in a good enough mood…. ;-/
She actually did awesome on the plane! It was the 3 hr wait at baggage claim because of lightening that kind of did us in. All in all though, she really was such a trooper 😀
Home late but in time to enjoy the beautiful sunset from the bridge <3
