Today I went with some friends to experience some fun in this city of ours (for another 1 1/2 weeks). First, we went to Lulu's for the 3 pound cinnamon roll. That's right, 3 pounds. The thing is huge, I'm still in shock.
Next we ventured out to the San Antonio Missions. These are Franciscan missions that were created in the 1700's. There are about 5 in the area, we saw about 3 today. They are so beautiful, I loved it.

This past Saturday we went with some friends to explore the El Mercado in downtown San Antonio. It's a Mexican market with cute shops of all kinds. After walking around for a while we went to dinner at Mi Tierra. We ate on the patio and had the privilege of listening to the live entertainment in the market. The singing was seriously so bad that it was comical. We could barely talk to each other it was so loud and when one of the singers started, we couldn't help but laugh. I wish I had a recording, it was bad! It all added to the ambiance though and definitely contributed to the authentic experience of the night.
This is my new friend Cati, she is so cute and she makes me laugh all the time.
A few weekends ago Peter and I went to the temple here in San Antonio. It was gorgeous and we loved the community it is in. It's amazing how it felt so comfortable and peaceful to be there when our lives are currently a little transient. Hopefully we'll get to go back.

We've been here just over two weeks now and we are really enjoying our time here. We have a small little hotel room with living space that suites us just fine. It is hot, hot, hot though. I've been really impressed by the size of the bugs here, they are huge! Peter spends most of his time at the hospital learning doctor stuff, but we have managed to have some fun while we are here.
On the night of the 4th we headed out to see a few of the local fireworks. It was in a pretty funny part of town, but it was still really nice to see the fireworks and be with Peter. There was a gorgeous, old church right by where we were too, it makes a beautiful set for the fireworks.
This last weekend we headed out with the Hawks to experience the Alamo and the famous San Antonio Riverwalk. We had a great time, San Antonio is really charming. One of the best parts, the parking was free! The Riverwalk is gorgeous with lights, restaurants, people, and music everywhere. We had a great dinner and walked around a little bit. I can't wait to go back.
Since being here in San Antonio, we have gotten a lot of Carolyn play time. It's one of Peter's favorite things to do after work, go play with Carolyn. She is one of the first things he asks about on the way home. I think she has a mutual love for him as well. Needless to say, we are loving our time with her, how could we not?!
After my work week in Utah, Peter and I got to spend some time with my family. The night we got up there my cute little brother came home with this really cute girl and she had a ring on her finger. That's right, my brother is engaged. We are so excited for him and Karee, they make a great match.
Then we got to celebrate my Dad's birthday with a fancy seafood buffet, YUM!!
One night we even had Peter's family up for some games, jacuzzing, and some smores.
It was really nice to see everyone. The weather was absolutely amazing, every time I'm there I wonder why I don't visit more often.
