We just returned home from vacation yesterday evening, so I am currently in editing and writing mode. I have over two hundred photos to go through and edit, but in the meantime to give you a little eye candy here is a brief synopsis of our trip to San Antonio, Texas for Spring Break:
We left early Thursday morning and drove down south with no real destination in mind. We packed our camping gear, but learned that all the camping spots (or at least the ones we could find) were full, so we drove around aimlessly some more looking for a hotel. After tweeting spots to find hotels in San Antonio, we finally settled on staying with my long lost aunt who I didn't even know existed two years ago and whom I had only met once in person.
Wait til I tell you the story of the long lost aunt.
We then got up the next morning and saw some historic sites in downtown San Antonio, before hiking at Eisenhower Park on the north side of town.
The weather was warm; the skies were sunny. Everything was perfect. Then I check my Droid for a weather update before we headed home the next day:
Gotta give the weather reporter this--at least he has a sense of humor.
We literally went from this in San Antonio:
To thunderstorms overnight to something eerily white at my home the next day:
When I awoke the next morning, this is what was awaiting me:
On the first and second days of spring no less.
Texas weather is like a box of chocolates...you never know what you're gonna get.
By the way, Tuesday it will be nearly 80 degrees F. Take that.
PS: I know it looks like I copied Ree Drummond's, the Pioneer Woman's, Like a Box of Chocolates post, but weirdly enough we were just on the same wave length Saturday. I promise. I was just as surprised. I even tweeted her on twitter and she gave me her stamp of approval for making it looked like I copied her, so there's proof that I am really more creative than I seem. I think.
