I LOVE San Antonio!

This weekend Caroline had her first meet of the season. We have seven more to follow. She did outstanding and placed in every event.. Way to go Caroline. The meet was in San Antonio. Of course, I used this as an excuse to take a family get away on the Riverwalk. It was GREAT! In fact, this short trip was the highlight of my summer.

I used Priceline and with much difficulty and frustration, finally got them to accept my price for a hotel actually on the Riverwalk. FYI.. when using Name Your Own Price on Priceline to stay on the Riverwalk on the weekend.. cheap rates are non existent.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Riverwalk and loved it.. well, everything except that the parking garage doesn't allow Excursions or other large SUVs in because they can't get out. BOO! But, besides that, I would highly recommend it. We creatively fit our family of six into a room meant for four,but for one night on the gorgeous San Antonio Riverwalk in a nice hotel, who can complain??
Clayton had his own little "bed" made up of two arm chairs and lots of blankets. He loved it and slept all night!

We were able to get some good Mexican food, do a little shopping, ride the Riverboats, see the Alamo, go to the IMAX and eat at the Rainforest Cafe. The kids behaved well and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time there. I'm already excited to go back! It's just so relaxing and beautiful and very romantic!

Looks like fun. Just about every family vacation of my childhood involves a tournament or meet of some kind and the vacation while we were already there. ALL of my memories are positive!! So keep doing what you're doing :)
Emily, my youngest sister, always got to sleep on the chairs in hotel rooms, too so we could all fit in one room! I loved that picture- brought back great memories of my fam!
