Quick Trip To San Antonio

Memorial Day weekend, I flew out for a few days 
with Kristen and Felix. 
Oh how I miss them!
I'm secretly praying that God will move them closer to home.
Ok, it's not secret.

Mark knew I was missing my girl 
so he surprised me with airline tickets on Mothers Day. 
I love him!

We crammed a lot in a few days.
San Antonio is such a great city with so many must-see's.
They have recently restored a lovely area downtown and designated it as an open air market.  
It's a hot spot for local vendors to market their locally grown produce and home made products. 
We had a lovely time exploring all the treasures to be found.

A water feature for kids to splash through 
was perfect for weather in the 90's. 
Plenty of shaded spots to sit and relax. 
I do love to people-watch.

On the outskirts of the quaint park are restored hotels, cute boutiques and shops. 
The ever so popular Bakery Lorraine
just so happened to be on our walk. 
Actually, it was fore ordained that we were going 
to be checking this lovely place out.

You know, iPhotos can't do justice 
but you get the idea how divine this place is.


Oh the choices!
We ended up getting porridge. 
It was deliciously dotted with an 
assortment of berries, 
almonds and freshly whipped cream.
(sorry, no pic)

We walked around the nearby 
Hotel Emma.
If you are ever in the area,
add it to your itinerary.
It was once a brewery in the early 1900's.
It is restored into an exquisite hotel.
They kept much of the brewery contents, equipment and machinery which makes it unique.

The huge round brew kettle below
has been transformed into a cozy sitting area.

Do you see the elevator below?

Every nook was fascinating.

I just imagined they used this desk 
for meetings and such.

Who could that girl be
peeking in the window?

I was going to write about the whole trip but this is quite lengthy so I will hush for now.

One more photo of KJ in her apartment
blessing this mother with a cello solo.

'Twas an amazing weekend that I will be thankful for
for quite awhile.
