San Antonio

Last weekend Micah & I spent a long weekend in San Antonio to celebrate our 1st anniversary. We got there pretty late Friday night and we were exhausted, so we just hung out at the hotel. We stayed at the Marriott on the RiverWalk. Our room looked over the River Center. It was really nice.

On Saturday we woke up and headed out for a day of fun. First we went to the IMAX. Micah wanted to watch the Alamo IMAX and I had never seen it, so we went there first and saw the show. It was very short, but cool.
Next, we headed to the Natural Bridge Caverns & the Safari Wildlife Ranch. We walked through the caverns. They were awesome! We went on a self guided tour, and a guided tour. The guided tour was cool. We went really deep down into the cavern and we walked through some dark, narrow areas.

Between tours, we decided to go mining. You buy a bag of dirt that's preloaded with precious stones, arrow heads, or fossils. Micah & I are just a bunch of big kids, so we bought a bag. Here's what we discovered:

We had fun at the caverns!! Once we were done, we headed to the Wildlife Ranch. It's basically a drive-thru safari. When you enter, they give you a bag of food, and the animals will come to your car to eat.

After a long day, we went back to the hotel to clean up and then down to the Riverwalk to eat dinner.

After a long day on Saturday, we slept in a little on Sunday and then went to SeaWorld. At first we weren't sure if we wanted to go, but since neither of us had been since we were kids, we decided to go ahead and go. We saw 3 shows: Shamu, The sea lions, and the dolphins. We also saw Pirates in 4D. Yes....Micah & I both screamed multiple times. It was so funny! After all the shows we went to feed the sea lions and walk around the exhibits. We wanted to feed the dolphins, but we didn't get there in time. However, we bought a year pass cause it was the same price as a day pass. So, hopefully we can go back again this summer.

Monday morning our plans changed. Micah's best friend in Dallas had a baby Sunday, so we decided to make a major detour and drive to Dallas on our way home to visit the new baby. So, Monday morning we woke up early and went on a boat tour. Then we walked the Riverwalk for a little bit and headed out.

We had so much fun in San Antonio. There is so much to do. We can't wait to go back!!
