San Antonio trip

This year Jim's summer regional meeting was in San Antonio at the Hyatt Hill Country resort. We had a great  five days there and spent lots of time at the pool and lazy river. We also had several Edward Jones dinners to go to with lots of fun activities for the kids. 

First night dinner with the Giles boys.

First day at the pool. 

It rained every evening so they had to move the s'mores and movies indoors. The kids didn't seem phased and loved making their s'mores.  

While Jim was at one of his meetings, I took the kids to the play ground that was on property.  

We found this cute little swing as we were exploring the grounds. 

Now that's a squirrel feeder!

Friday night was a western theme. Jones provided the hats, bandannas and water guns for the all the kiddos.  And boy did they have fun acting the part. And surprisingly they kept it all on all night!

They had face painters there. Although we opted for the painting to be done on the arms. 

The boys chose dragons and Sarah chose a bracelet and ring. 

They had a mechanical bull and Jacob had a blast trying it out.  They also had a live country band and Sarah had fun dancing all around. 

While Jim was at another meeting, we found this other swing that faced the golf course. A kind golfer stopped and asked if  I wanted him to take our picture.  Sure thing! 

The resort has many different activities planned for the kids throughout the day. Jacob loved participating in the water balloon toss each day. 

Saturday after Jim's meeting we went down to the riverwalk and enjoyed Mexican food for lunch. Jim saw this poster and just had to have his picture taken in front of it! :-) 

While walking along the river Luke spotted this sign with his name on it.  Cheese! We wanted to go over to the Alamo and ride the river boat but we just ran out of time. 

Time for the awards banquet. 

Sunday morning we found a Catholic church in downtown San Antonio and attended Mass before we drove home. Come to find out this church is the oldest cathedral in the US and it was absolutely beautiful inside! We also found out that several of the Alamo heroes are buried under the church.
