trip to San Antonio

We had a quick 2 day trip to San Antonio in early June.  photo Picture12_zpsi7klnvld.png

We headed to the park where we walked around, visited the Japanese Gardens, rode the train to the Children's Museum and back to the park again.

That evening we checked out the Alamo and walked the Riverwalk. The next morning we took a picture at the Alamo as we were walking by, played cards at a coffee shop while waiting for the stores at La Villita to open, and then shopped at El Mercado.

IJ lost his first top tooth after a very long time in housing a very loose tooth that he was quite proud to turn 360 degrees around. We are unsure exactly how the tooth was lost.

ZJ spilled her popcorn and she cleaned up like this, because that's how a butterfly would do it.

IJ finished his 4th and likely final soccer season at the Y. We are moving on to a more structured, serious program. That also means he won't be on a team full of his classmates any longer and it will be the first season neither NJ or I will be coaching.
