On Saturday, we realized that Handy had NEVER seen the ALAMO. How could this be?! What Houstonian hasn't seen the Alamo?! So we drove the 30 minutes farther south (after a pit stop at the MASSIVE Bass Pro Outdoor World store where we left with a new fishing rod and reel as if it was HIS birthday weekend ;) and WHAMO! There we were in front of THIS:
I didn't have my good camera with me, but the point and shoot did pretty good with this one, methinks.
We didn't go in. Handy doesn't have the patience for museums so we just looked around the grounds and watched a little of the reenactment that was happening out front (complete with CANONS).
The point and shoot did not do as well with this one....
Then we hung out at the River Walk and even rode the little boat thing (which was surprisingly cheap and informative--I had no idea that most of it is a real river).
Or this one...
We also hit up the big outlet mall in San Marcos, as per Birthday Weekend tradition, where I snagged me a new pair of Converse! RED!!! And now it's back to work! Revisions, photography, revisions, back to the office, revisions, work from home, revisions, redecorate, revisions, decoupage!, revisions revisions revisions.
