Spring Break - San Antonio!

This week was spring break for the kids from preschool, so we decided to go on a little mini overnight adventure to the San Antonio area, just for fun.

We started off with a stop at Natural Bridge Caverns. This photo kind of sums up how they were feeling about it - Carter was excited to go into a REAL bat cave, but Courtney was a wee bit apprehensive!

The trek down deep below the ground, past beautiful formations...

Our little cave explorer!

We walked around the grounds a little - it was a nice day!

They had a little area where you could go "mining" for gems - fun!

They also had some dinosaurs to climb on!

My sweeties.

For dinner we went to a place called The Cove downtown. It's been featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives on Food Network! I had no idea - Joel picked it mostly because it also had a playscape for the kids to be entertained! Here's me and my sweet girl, sitting outside on a gorgeous spring evening.

Does this food look Guy Fieri-worthy? :-) This was Joel's dinner - a bison burger and sweet potato fries!

The next morning we went to the Botanical Gardens, where Carter took a birdwatching class!

Here's my boy outfitted with some binoculars, all ready to identify some birds!

Courtney got bored quickly in the birding class (and honestly, Carter did too - but he stuck it out!). Instead Courtney wandered around the gardens, especially loving the displays they had set up for Easter & spring...

My sweet garden girl!

Thanks for stopping by!
