Wanted to show the boys downtown Austin, so we walked around a little and stopped in at Voodoo Doughnuts.
Shugie got an apple fritter, and they had just come out from the kitchen, still hot. I had a bite, and amazzzzinggggg.
Drove around a little…
Visited Uncommon Objects
Supper was Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood — it wasn’t quite as good as last time, but that just gives us an excuse to try other places this summer when we’ll be in town again. We didn’t get to go back to Franklin this time, either, as they were on holiday break.
Made it to San Antonio and got nice pics of the Alamo…
My genius idea was that since we were there in late December, it would be so much cooler weather than when we’re in SA during summers, and hopefully not so much of a wait for the riverwalk boats.

Well, I mean, I was right about the weather being great.
Y’all. People were lined up in an hour+ wait *for tickets* (though you can buy them online) and then to board was maybe double that. That was a big nope so we just walked the riverwalk for a long time, which was great, and I don’t think we even really missed riding so much.
Here’s the super fab part — we got upgraded at the St Anthony to a suite and it was fantastic. Beyond, even.
Two robes, so the boys each got one, and see that dark gray rectangle in the bathroom mirror?
The boys could watch ESPN while taking their showers.
The lobby was so pretty that we spent a fair amount of time just lounging around
Previously, we’ve stayed a couple of times at the Marriott Plaza (we love their pool and grounds, namely) but the St Anthony is going to be our new place, I think. There are some other really fun hotels there to think about, though — Hotel Emma, the Mokara, or maybe if the boys want to stay further from downtown and spend more time in the water, the JW Marriott SA Hill Country Resort & Spa looks very nice and um, we might not ever leave their lazy river, actually.
