Ella In San Antonio

Last weekend, Heath, Ella, myself, and my parents spent the weekend in San Antonio which is where my sister and her husband live.

We had a great time.

On Saturday we headed to the River Walk. We decided we wanted to walk the "new addition" of the River Walk. Well, little did we know, it was about a 2 mile walk. A 2 mile walk in 103 degree heat = not a good idea. Despite having very funny memories of our MISERY, it was awful.

At one point, I was so delirious from the amount of walking and the heat that I literally got the giggles and could not stop laughing. So then I just looked crazy to my family.

Half way through our walk, our goal was just to make it to Le Margarita, which is a restaurant we always go to when we visit San Antonio. After 1 1/2 hours of walking, we finally made it there.

Resting from our long walk.

Ella finally gave in to the exhaustion and the heat.

Dada bought his sweet girl a puppet at Market Place.

Sunday, we forgo another 103 degree/2 mile trek and decided to spend the entire day in the my sister's pool! Ahhhh...amazing!

The point of this trip was to leave Ella with my sister for the week. My sister has been wanting to do this for a very long time, and we finally thought Ella was ready. Boy, did she have a good week. My sister bought her a season pass to Sea World so they could go for a few hours everyday. And they swam everyday. And did all kinds of other fun things.

So while Mama and Dada were at home so sad missing our sweet girl...Ella was having the time of her life. Thanks Aunt Michelle!

That walk is hard. We stayed in a hotel at the far end & made that walk every day when we were there last year. Still looks like a fun trip!
