Remember the Alamo and more!

Well Spring Break has come and gone. We were blessed to have beautiful weather here in Central Texas. We spent Friday and Saturday in San Antonio with what felt like the rest of the Texas Tourists! I have never seen San Antonio so busy. We actually waited 50 minutes in line to get into the Alamo...and no they were not checking bags! But daughter #1 had just had a Texas History lesson and she just had to see the Alamo, 1st hand! Once inside the walls (built in 1744) we were happy we waited! There is so much to see, lots of artifacts and "History Buffs" recreating the story.  You just don't see such old architecture in the southern states!
As for my stitching, it suffered. Not much time to stitch when one is entertaining 2 kiddos with a week off from school. I did get a little done at night but not as much as I would have liked. I need to light a fire under myself as the baby is just weeks away! Enjoy your week. Here's wishing you blue skies, rain at night and sprouts in your garden! And of course and extra hour here and there to stitch!

I love The Alamo and San Antonio.

We are planning to go to the re-enactment at San Jacinto next month. We aren't far from the Monument.

Have a wonderful day.
