Meme and Grandpa take good care of us, and we are so thankful for this time with them, and together as a family. One of my favorite quotes is this; "The most beautiful things in life are not things. They're people, and places, and memories and pictures. They're feelings and moments and smiles and laughter." I believe this, I believe that life is a collection of places and faces and memories, and pictures and stories and time spent with ones we love the most. We did this, and you all know I like to take lots of pictures! Part of the beauty of this trip is that we did lots of things that Hal did with his grandparents. He is repeating the story of what was important to him as a child, and it's now become important to my children. I notice and really appreciate that. My kids do too.
We stayed at the Menger Hotel, ate great meals, went on the River Walk cruise, to the Alamo and Jim Bowie exhibit (first thing!), SeaWorld and more.... basically if it was in the San Antonio tourist book for things to see in 2 days, we did it!
It was really fun to be together and get away from it all for a while, Isaac is sick to his stomach now so we are hoping that passes quickly and as painlessly as possible. It isn't a vacation until a Bass kid gets sick, but we are working on that ! ;)
