It seemed a shame to try to help my girls build an Alamo when they have never seen it!
The weather here in Texas has not been good for road trips and instead of the snow, like the rest of the country, or the sun, like we are used to, we have had too many days of cold and rain.
You just can't get motivated for a 5 hour drive to arrive somewhere that will also be cold and wet and then come back.
OSU was playing Arizona in the Alamo Bowl and everyone in Oklahoma had travelled to San Antonio for the game, or at least it felt like it!
We quickly checked into our hotel and were glad to have Lisa, the tour guide, direct us through the streets to the Alamo.
ONLY along the way the people who happened to be hanging out on the street corners looked like several from America's Most Wanted. The girls were scared to death. I have to admit I had not seen quite so many tattoos, piercings, and overall scary looking people in one place, especially while trying to corral four pre-teens/teens through the mobs, and hoping that no one said or did the wrong thing, as I would hate to have to fight them, but I would have!
After our full day of travels and sightseeing, it was decided we would see the rest of the missions the next day.
The four girls had a discussion and voted they would prefer just to leave San Antonio rather than run into any more of the scary people, so we packed and headed to Austin the next day instead.
