The kids and I went to San Antonio last weekend to meet up with my friend Trish and her son Austin. Trish & I became close over the last few years when our husbands were diagnosed with the same rare type of cancer, chondrosarcoma. In September I flew up to Minnosota to visit her and to climb her state high point. It was at that time we planned for her to come and visit me in Texas in February.
We toured many of the typical San Antonio tourist hot spots...we went to the Riverwalk, we stopped by the Alamo, we went to the Ripley's Museum, we had ice cream at Marble Slab, we drove to the Natural Bridge Caverns Nature Reserve, ate some yummy Texas BBQ and we played outdoors so that she and Austin could soak in the the warm Texas weather (a big change from temps in the teens where Trish is from...Burr!)
