The Alamo and a serious case of the icks

29 Oct


I spent the beginning of the week in San Antonio for work- nice city but no direct flight from Washington, DC- so I spent part of Monday getting there and most of Wednesday getting home. The trip down was extended by an hour due to bad storms and most of the trip was really, really bouncy. The trip home was a lot less eventful and it was nice to be back home. Business travel really does not allow for sightseeing (you know- that work thing gets in the way every time) but since the Alamo was a two block walk from the hotel- I did squeeze in a short visit after a long work day. I obviously did no research before my trip because I did not know the Alamo was right in downtown San Antonio. I guess I pictured it being a little bit removed from the city but it is literally surrounded by restaurants, shops, hotels and offices. It was free to visit and I got a small history tour. Definitely worth visiting if you are in San Antonio!


Otherwise, the trip was all work but we did get to enjoy two dinners on the Riverwalk.

Kerry did an excellent job of taking care of Hadley while I was gone but I did get greeted last night with a runny nose, a slight cough and some stomach issues. No fever equals no flu but she definitely has a serious case of the icks. Her ickiness has not impacted her movement and we both have a feeling that we will be showing you crawling video very soon. She now gets her legs in the right position and does this lunging movement forward. She is so close! While I was gone- she mastered sitting and her new favorite thing is to dump all the toys out around her.


Or to get under anything that seems interesting.


Hope everyone is having a great week!
