Christmas riverwalk

The new lights on the river walk, led and wrapped around the trunks

The traditional riverwalk lights, the old style lights and draped from the branches

Which do you like better?

Keith tried to catch me marveling at the ceiling in Schilo's German Deli, but instead ended up with a more snap to attention, "Hey I'm hungry!" serious look. And then he did his impression of it.

Which do you like better?

Schilos seemed to have one main rule...

I thought it was a good rule.

We enjoyed potato pancakes with apple sauce and our eggs over easy.
It rained all weekend which put a damper on our plan to ride the Mission trail this time.  At least our bikes were cleaned in 160 miles of rain. We did however spend a great deal of time in whole earth provisions, with the countless books, toys and camping gear one could spend hours playing with. We also spent a great (and long*) day with a ton of Willefords, including tiny baby Cameron (Keith's nephew) who I couldn't put down of course. Colin (Keith's other nephew)amused us with his direct ownership of the letter c, his dad and brother will now need to find replacements. Sorry no pictures of them, but you can take my word for it, they are cute.

We also built a pizza to envy for lunch and had sandwiches and tea in a cozy sandwich shop for dinner. Great margaritas and cake for desert, and a nice walk around historic San Antonio to end the night.

* Has the time change messed with you at all? I keep having to remind myself it is not as late as it seems....except on Saturday, where we did not realize how late it was until it was nearly midnight..sorry Mama and Papa W!

I love the way they lit up the cathedral in the main plaza.

Pretty Christmas tree that Yuliya would have loved also in the main plaza.

Remember the Alamo?

Hopefully, but if not here's a refresher.

And the considerable Christmas tree right in front of the Alamo.

And there you have it folks, another successful trip to S.A., this time with a little rain.
