Enchanted Rock

May 25, 2011


Happy Hump Day! We welcome you to another stop along our Farewell to Texas tour.  As previously mentioned, we’ve been making the rounds to all of our favorite places in and around the San Antonio area before we move (in just over two weeks!). We first discovered Enchanted Rock a few years ago after a co-worker of mine […]

San Antonio River Walk: Part One

May 18, 2011


According to Gus, the River Walk is the best place in the entire city to spend a weekend morning. We agree!  As we’ve mentioned in several previous posts, we head down to the River Walk every weekend to walk Gus and go for a run.  As a family, the River Walk is our absolute favorite […]

The Alamo

May 9, 2011


Woot woot!  We crossed another item off our Farewell to Texas list this weekend…The Alamo! I hate to admit this, but the first time we visited The Alamo back in 2004, all I could think about was Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.  What!  There’s no basement?! Although Mitch and I are downtown every weekend, we rarely […]

Fredericksburg, TX

May 4, 2011


There’s no turning back.

To continue […]

Welcome to another stop along our “Farewell to Texas” tour! As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, we compiled a list of all our favorite places in Texas we wanted to visit one last time before we move.  The Japanese Tea Garden was high on our list and we are so glad we made time last Friday […]

Hardberger Dog Park

April 13, 2011


Happy Wednesday, Friends! Today we’re highlighting yet another fabulous park in San Antonio.  Hardberger Dog Park opened in 2010 and quickly became a favorite among the local dog-lover crowd.  The City of San Antonio did an excellent job creating this park and we hope our photos illustrate the fabulous mix of function and design. And without further ado…Hardberger Dog Park! […]

Stone Oak Park

March 28, 2011


What?!  It’s Monday already?!  Say it ain’t so. Our weekend buzzed by and we didn’t come close to crossing off all the items on our to-do list.  Sigh…there’s always next weekend.  In our defense, it’s hard to stay indoors when the weather is beautiful and there are a plethora of parks to choose from.  So, […]
