So back to our weekend. It was wonderful. We made the very best of our weekend alone. We stayed right on the Riverwalk. We ate lots of Tex-Mex and had delicious margaritas. We rode the water taxis around the area, mainly because of my foot. The weather was incredible. We did some shopping. We watched a movie in our hotel room. We slept a glorious number of hours each night. And we just had a great time being responsible for no one other than ourselves. It was a much needed weekend in a city that we love to visit. We did miss the race that I had been anticipating for many months. But I have no complaints about our trip. It was just what we needed.
dinner outside, right on the river
it is so beautiful all lit up at night!
Holden is obsessed with Nutcrackers, so I had to snap this picture for him. It was right outside our hotel.
More time on the Riverwalk. In the picture above you can barely see a guy vomiting in the river. (Not that any of you really wanted me to bring that to your attention.) Oh young boys....having too much fun.
15 years later, I still have a crush on this guy.
Mi Tierra is known for it's massive baked goods to choose from. But I think it is the largest restaurant I have ever been in. It is massive. And they never close. Not ever. Not at night. Not on Christmas Day. Never. And the decor in the picture above is not specifically for Christmas. It is like this all year long! It's loud. And I'm not talking about the noise level...just look at it. Loud!
This was the best picture I could get of the baked goods. And that was only about 1/3 of it.
Key lime pie to go please. This creepy picture was taken for my friend that shares my love for all things key lime.
Like I said, it was a great great weekend with my guy. Just a few days to rest and recharge. Now I want to go back. :)
