We spent the morning at the San Antonio zoo. We had heard great things about this zoo. It was really pretty and the animals were really close. It wasn't too crowded, which made it much more enjoyable.
They also had a farm area where the kids could pet and brush the pigs and goats
After our morning at the zoo we took a little train over to another recommendation- Kiddie Park
Kiddie Park is America's oldest children's amusement park. It was built in 1925 and renovated in 2009 (although I'm not sure where or how!) We bought the boys a wrist band for them to have unlimited rides and then let them pick where they wanted to go. It was so nice to be at an amusement park that had no height restrictions!
One of my favorites!!
Oh, Brother, we made it down safely!!
Just a little view of how small and old this place was
The boys had a great time and now we can say we've been there!
We went to dinner at an authentic Mexican restuarant that is top on the tourist's list. We ordered out-of-this-world sopapillas for dessert (so disappointed the picture is blurry)
and paid these guys to sing "La Bamba" to us!!
Grayson enjoyed the song! The restaurant is decorated for Christmas all year long and had a large bakery in the front. On our way out, we stopped to buy some more treats
After a very long day, we ended it with a dip in the pool.
Our pool was on the roof of the hotel, so there was always a nice breeze. Tonight, especially, there was breeze! So much that there were waves in the pool and the water was cold. When we got back to our room (with blue, frozen lips) and turned on the TV, we saw that there were tornadoes in Dallas. The wind was blowing in TX tonight!!
Gotta get little ones in bed early tonight. Sea World tomorrow!!
