Field Trip Pics!

I traveled to San Antonio for a work conference and took some fun shots:

I had to take a shot of this for J!

Full Moon at the Alamo!

The Alamo at night is so beautiful...once you're able to edit out the tourists!

There was a hand blown glass shop that had all these cool balls hanging from the ceiling!

And of course the water features along the Riverwalk!

Other Highlights From the Trip:
- The TexMex food...MMMMM!!!
- Seeing my co-workers reaction to 'street people'!
- The ability to go to dinner utilizing a trolley, your feet, and a cab all for under $5.00!
- Dick's Last Resort...(for those unfamiliar, it's the restaurant where they are purposely dick's to you)...and I note this as a 'highlight' to remind myself to never go back.  I pay people for 'service' for a reason!
- And then the rest was really just work crap no one wants to hear about!

Side Note:  As I kick back in the recliner typing this, wrapped in a warm fuzzy blanket and sipping on hot tea, I look into the bedroom (yes...it's a small house) and can see my wonderful (but pretty icky sick right now) J asleep like a baby and our dog curled up in a ball at the end of his feet.  I sip my tea and smile to myself...'This is life I love!'  (Minus the sickness!)...(and the snoring I can hear)...(Oh God, my dog is licking herself now!)

And Who Doesn't Like Making Ice Cream Cones out of Play-Dough?

The last time we were visiting in KC, I snapped off these pics of my niece and nephew.  We had pulled out the Play-Dough bin (which now that we have done that, thank god we won't have to for like another year!) and starting creating!  They decided to make ice cream cones and so I took pics of there award winning masterpieces:

We're calling Jude's 'already eaten'.  Prior to the picture his ice cream fell off, then he thought it'd be cool to step on it first and then put it back in his cone.  Which also explains the coy smirk on his face!

Amazingly enough, Madi's really started looking more and more like the real shape of ice cream.  And the 'green sprinkles' were all her invention too!
