A Visit to San Antonio, Texas
Mom and I had planned a trip to San Antonio a few months ago and the day finally arrived last week. We packed up a couple of bags and left Thursday afternoon and drove down to Temple, Texas and stopped for the night. We enjoyed a wonderful steak dinner and then went back to the hotel to get some rest. Early Friday morning we continued on our trip to San Antonio....we were off to see a cousin that we both adore!
Sharron Ann here in the center and her hubby Rene' were perfect host and showed us around San Antonio. We went to the famous riverwalk and went on the boat ride. We were treated to Mexican food (our favorite) and Rene' also grilled out and Sharron made some awesome Pico and coleslaw.
Sharron and Mom share a passion when it comes to cooking so they enjoyed talking about recipes. Sharron is in the process of making a cookbook that really applies to diabetics as diabetes has a tendency to run in our family.
Sharron and Rene' preparing a wonderful meal for us.
I just love pico and this was fantastic! I admit I had more than one helping.
Before you know it the weekend had come to an end and it was time for Mom and I to pack up and head back to Oklahoma. Sharron and Rene' showed us a wonderful time and we look forward to having them come up next month for the family reunion.
While on the trip home we took Hwy 281 instead of I-35 and we found lots of wonderful places along the way to stop. Queen B is run by 2 women both principals of schools in Hamiliton, Texas. Oh if only I had a trailer with me what treasures I would have brought home!
We also found a lot of Mom and Pop plant nurseries along the way and stopped at a few.
Looks like we both will be busy planting for the next few days. Well I had a most wonderful Mother's day with my Mom. We made lots of new memories. Danny had a few surprises for me when I returned home and so did my kiddo's. Loved each and every one of them....I am truly blessed.
