Sunday, June 5
Mom and I left town around 9:00 am and made our way to Fredericksburg! I am not one for long driving -- Chris does most of our highway driving while I read or snooze :) But, Mom and I listened to music (Jennifer Nettles' new one, Sawyer Fredericks' new one) and talked and laughed. We had a fun time. Mom had to go to the bathroom not too long into the trip, so we stopped for that, and then I had to stop and take some wildflower photos :) So we were even.
We stopped in Fredericksburg for lunch at the Brewery (yum!!!) -- we each got a big pretzel and a cup of cheddar ale soup! Then we stopped at a store for her to check on some shoes, and then back in the car we went. About that point I realized that I had forgotten my swimsuit!!!!! Geez o Pete. So, we had to stop at Walmart. Mom's favorite place ha ha!!! There was nothing good there so we stopped closer to San Antonio at a Target there. I found a really cute Mossimo suit there!
We made it safely to San Antonio with the help of my Ford's GPS...and then we checked right in to The Hotel Contessa -- our gorgeous hotel right on the Riverwalk! We were on the 12th floor, in room 1215. We had a living room area, a bar area, a bathroom and a bedroom with two double beds. It was modern and beautiful! The perfect place to spend a few days with my Mom!
