Summer Highlights... NC Friends and San Antonio Fun!

This summer we got to spend a few days with the VonCanon Family in San Antonio! We had an absolute blast! It was such a treat to be with friends from NC! We stayed at the JWMarriott which is an all inclusive resort with a waterpark, spa, golf course and hiking trails and TONS of activities for the kids. Our kids participated in the rubber ducky race (below), laser tag, marshmallow roasting in the evenings and lots of time with Maggie and Morgan at the pools and slides.

We love you Fred, Anita, Maggie and Morgan!
Thank you for sharing your trip with us!

Anita and I enjoying an attempt at leisure pool time...with 6 kids splashing around us!

The resort had a rubber ducky race the first morning of our trip. Here the
kids are decorating their ducks!

Eli entered the race with a plain ducky. He wasn't interested in drawing on his duck!

Isn't this hilarious!? The ducks floated down the lazy river to the finish line...

Eli won....last place!!!! And Sarah came second to last. So we let them split the last place
prize, which was a stuffed longhorn, a backpack and a kite!

The Alamo
It was so much fun to visit the Alamo and to see 100 year old walls and cool artifacts found at the
battle - like guns and knives. We were all really amazed.

We ended the trip with a stroll down the Riverwalk. Although it was really hot in San
Antonio (105), the shaded bought us a little time to see some of the restaurants, stores and attractions.
