BMT Graduation: Saturday

Michael had "town pass" again on Saturday, and since no events were scheduled, we had almost the entire day to do as we pleased. We spent the morning hanging out in the hotel room again, but in the afternoon we went to the Riverwalk and the Alamo.

The Riverwalk was amazing!  It is one of the biggest attractions for tourists in San Antonio, and I can see why.  Basically, the banks of the river on both sides are lined not only with beautiful trees, but with restaurants and shops as well.  Since this was the weekend before St. Patrick's Day,  they dyed the river green!  Pictures do the beauty of the Riverwalk justice far better than words.

By the time we got to the Riverwalk, we were all starving so we looked for a place to eat.  This restaurant wasn't as packed as the others, and it had a cute little bistro area outside so we decided to check it out.  It was fantastic!  The pasta I ordered was one of the best things I have eaten in my entire life.  Whenever we visit the area in the future, we are definitely going there again.  Looks like Michael enjoyed it, too.

After the Riverwalk, we walked over to the Alamo which was also really cool.  I have a thing for old architecture so the nerd in me was really excited!

Evie had fun skipping pennies in the small fountain at the Alamo.  How is it that a two year old can do that, and I can't?

After the Riverwalk and Alamo, we were all pretty tired of walking around so we went back to the hotel and hung out for the rest of the day. Michael's mom and sister were flying out early Sunday morning so we did a little photo session before they said their goodbye's.
