A Visit to San Antonio, Texas 

Traveling makes me happy.  This past week we were fortunate to get away for a little while on a small trip. 

For our summer vacation, my husband and kiddos took a little trip down to San Antonio from our home in the Dallas area. It’s not a terribly long drive (about 5 hours without traffic or stops), but it is remarkable how it feels quite different from the part of Texas where we live. It’s no secret that Texas is a big state, full of diverse places and people and culture, so it shouldn’t surprise me when I get a chance to explore to see how different a new area can be from our own. 

We have enjoyed exploring Texas with the kids now and hope to venture further out as the kids get a little bigger. But even if we stay in Texas for awhile, it’s cool to realize how much there is still to explore. 🙂

For my post this week I thought I would share some pictures so you can take a little trip as well. Enjoy! And have a great week! ~CJS

I love all the bridges to cross from one side of Riverwalk to the other side. I also enjoyed the flowers. 🙂

Lots of rock walls like this, with the plants growing all along them. Very pretty.

  1. Awesome pictures – so refreshing. We have to be open to what is possible and look for the beauty around us and take time to appreciate it.
