Christmas on the RiverWalk

Last night we decided since Heather was babysitting, Marty and I would go out. He worked all day so we had to leave late but we decided to call his brother Mike and Mike's wife Debbie and meet them at the RiverWalk in San Antonio. I love going there this time of year. It's beautiful with all the Christmas lights!



I've never found parking to be the problem it was last night! Apparently all the Oklahoma Sooners and Missouri Tigers fans had bombarded the city. We drove round and round the Alamo until parking spaces finally opened up in the RiverCenter parking garage. We met up with Mike and Debbie inside the RiverCenter Mall and walked along the RiverWalk in search of food. We decided Case Rio sounded good and we even got a table outside beside the water. It was the perfect evening for such an outing! The weather was wonderful (Are you SURE it's December??? 'Cause it was 75 degrees today!!!) The evening was warm, the food delicious, and the Christmas lights added the perfect ambience.

You guys are so fun to hang out with. We laughed until the wee hours of the morning!

me and Marty. Thanks for a great date night!



After dinner we decided to just stroll. We passed one of the boat ride stations and Debbie said she'd never taken a boat ride on the River Walk. The line was very short and it was time for the night's final boat tour, so we got our tickets and hopped on.
While we were on the boat ride it became apparent the big football game was over (sorry Mizzou, the Sooners won the game.) There were even Mizzou fans on our boat!!! I've never felt so at home in San Antonio as I did last night with Mizzou t-shirts and jerseys EVERYWHERE!!!! At the end of the evening, on our way to the parking garage we entered an elevator full of young men, all wearing Mizzou shirts and one even wearing a football helmet. Turns out they are all from Missouri, living in Texas. Small world!



All of us on the boat ride.

There's nothing like a stroll along the RiverWalk at Christmas!
