San Antonio

We made another trip to San Antonio. It's funny, we never seem to go unless we have a good excuse, but we always have a fun time. This time the good excuse was my best friend from high school. She was in town for work, so we all had dinner Friday night at La Margarita in El Mercado. She was staying up the street from the Alamo, but hadn't walked over to see it yet so we made the trip together. After the tourist photos at the Alamo we had drinks at the bar in the Menger Hotel. The bar is very traditional with dark wood walls and is more of a liqueur and cigar bar. We walked through the hotel to check out the museum like cases of Teddy Roosevelt photos and Rough Rider gear. Ryno and I hadn't seen C since the summer of our weddings, four years ago, when we were both each other's bridesmaids. It was so fun to see her, and I hope we persuaded her to come visit us now that we are settled in Austin!
