Steve had a conference Saturday in San Antonio this past weekend and I was able to go along for the ride. this was a great perk as he works hard for little. Our time together was awesome. we were able to put our everyday worries aside and chat up a storm. Our first stop were the outlet stores in Round Rock (we both agreed that San Marcos would have been a little better), however, i had no problem spending some money. And for once it wasn't on me (as i have been on huge shopping spree for summer clothing). we actually did an experiment and drove all the way down at 60mph to see if the gas mileage would improve....we think we saved about 1/4 tank. not too bad for a gas guzzling suv. upon checking into the hotel which was located right on the river walk, we were greeted by a nice clerk who assumed it was our anniversary (1 month early) and said he would be sending a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to our room. off to eat some good river walk tex mex and enjoy a nice walk. the night ended with the bottle of bubbly not getting opened, but both of us indulging in the wonderful strawberries :) unfortunately steve had to be up early the next morning while i got to enjoy the most comfortable bed. i lounged around until he ditched out of the conference for the day to really begin. we hit the local street fair, walked the alamo, then bought tickets to the mirror maze (overpriced but fun) and then we took in an imax flick. attempted to see the temple...but got there to late. some more mexican another walk around and then we were pretty much through. sadly, we had to leave sunday morning for the drive back to the reality of our daily lives. l must say that i really enjoyed my time spent with my hunny as these getaways a few. i realize how much i love him and enjoy spending time in his presence. thank goodness we have a scheduled family vacation in about six weeks. this should help pass the time of work and the hot summer that has set in.
