Our first family vacation was a 24 hour whirlwind to San Antonio to catch a Spurs game, go out to eat for dinner, stay overnight, eat breakfast, go to the ZOO!, and then head back home.
Clearly the terms of vacation change when you bring the kids...our fine dining highlight in San Antonio was the Hard Rock Cafe. I'm not knocking it, though, because I was able to have a fabulous virgin colada in a huge glass.
Emma had a great time. HER highlights include seeing the horse and buggy on the street, the coyote mascot at the basketball game, sleeping in the pack and play in a bathroom, and seeing the butterflies in the butterfly house in the zoo. She was also pretty excited about the Grizzly bears, asking us if she could touch them.
A few of my favorite Emma things these days:
There is nothing better than going to a wedding where the bride and groom are truly in love. What a party!! The ceremony just barely finished before a huge storm swept in (hence the damp hair- well, somebody had to save the cheese table). It made it all that more fun.
You see our wine glasses are quite full in this picture- that is how the Iron Horse champagne was being poured. We have warm, fuzzy memories from our trip last summer to Sonoma where Marla, Chris, Tom, Luke & Laura, and I all spent an August morning trying through every Iron Horse wine the vineyard was willing to open.
We spent our 5th anniversary in much the style that I think we would like to spend every day worth celebrating: tasting some big, red wines. Although our trip was brief, our consumption was not. In true Team Thor style, we visited entirely too many wineries and found some that we may love forever. Good way to spend the anniversary.
