Texas Vacation

We returned from our first family vacation yesterday. We decided to take a trip to San Antonio since we hadn't been in years. It was far enough that we felt like we were getting away, but not too far in case Steven wouldn't sleep in the car or in the hotel. He did very well (in both), though, so those three hours in the car went by pretty quickly. Although, Steven was very happy to get out of his car seat when we got to the hotel. We stayed for 3 nights and this is what we did.
Playing after a "long" drive Steven's a real Texan now...he's been to the Alamo.

We spent a lot of time walking on the Riverwalk.
Steven got his first taste of ice cream: Haagen Dazs Vanilla (Daddy's favorite). He initially wanted some, as you can see in the first picture, but I guess was disappointed (too cold, maybe?) by the look on his face. We decided that was a good thing and that he'll like it soon enough. Plus, that leaves more for us.
We visited San Antonio's Botanical Gardens.
Steven 's souvenir from our trip is his first cowboy hat. There's a new sheriff in town! We had a great time!

I love the ice cream pic.
Steven looks tan, must be from Charlton. ;)
Looks like y'all had a good time. Next time y'all take a trip you need to come visit good ole Funroe. We would love to meet Steven in person.

What are those colored looking things that Steven is standing/sitting in? Almost looks like those silk flowers they sell at the stores here up in snowy MN :) We are jealous of the warm weather!!!
