***The Lone Star State***

Howdy! (sorry I couldn't help it) We're now in San Antonio, Texas! It is SO hot here! Yesterday morning we got up earlier than we wanted (we were exhausted from blogging that night:) had breakfast and left. It took 2 hours to get to San Antonio where we're staying in an awesome Texas-style hotel. When we got to the hotel, we unpacked everything, and set out ONCE AGAIN on a bus for a late lunch around 3:00 in Market Square. It was so much fun! We got snow cones. There were a few bands playing, and lots of cool Mexican stuff to buy. Plus funnel cakes and giant turkey legs. We went on a riverboat ride through the River Walk. It was really pretty. There were waterfalls, flowers, bright green trees, statues, lots of stuff. People on both sides of us would wave to us. After the ride, we started the long, tiring walk back to the hotel. We didn't know it, but we arrived just in time for the last few days of Fiesta. Fiesta is San Antonio's version of Marti Gras. We're going to try to go to a huge parade today to see all the costumes and stuff. But it's always EXTREMELY busy and psychotic we're told. It should be fun. =D

Mamasita here. I just wanted to let everyone know that we are having a great adventure! And never fear, there is still some homeschool going down. We have our history and science books with us and we're trying to squeeze in math when we can. As we pass through each state, we are reading about its history and putting passport stamps in our USA Passport. Tony still has to keep up with his online class as well. I am so glad that we have lds homeschool conference to look forward to at the end of this trip. I will need to be recharged at that point.

This was actually mom's idea^


  1. How fun to visit San Antonio! It is probably my favorite city in Texas. I'm glad you guys are having fun. We miss you Madison.

  2. Hey, I've been to San Antonio (briefly on the way to Mexico and on the way back from Mexico.) Sounds like you're still having lots of fun.
