There cute wife's I love Lynda's outfit.

For Thanksgiving we decided ( or should I say Gary decided to go to San Antonio Texas. Usually our Kids come to our house every other year and this was the year that they would not be coming. Gary had forgot that because of some circumstances some of our kids had know where else to go, but the reservation had already been made and paid for so there was know turning back. Thank you Mykla for feeding you brothers. Our friends Lynn and Lynda Williams from Toquerville went with us. Lynn and Lynda came to our home and stayed the night before. The morning November 22 we when to the airport in Salt Lake City and got our flight to San Antonio. Upon arriving in San Antonio we got one rental car. It was a Chevrolet HHR and it barely had room for the luggage, Since I always pack for a month. Lynn and Lynda had a GPS system that made it easier to navigate our way around. We drove into San Antonio where we stayed at the Wyndham La Cascada Resort and it was really nice it had all the conveniences of being home The river-walk was just behind the resort and made it very convenient. Also, the resort had a complementary shuttle that ran between the hours of 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM that we could use to get around the city. When we arrived at the resort our rooms were ready yet, so we decide to go down on the river-walk to Rosario's Mexican Restaurant. The map we had wasn’t very clear and the GPS didn’t really work when we were walking, so it took us awhile to find the place after walking about five blocks the wrong way. The walk back to the resort was exciting. We decided to walk back along the streets and that was okay but there were birds roosting along the way and we got hit with bird droppings.

The morning November 23 we drove to Denny’s and had breakfast on our way to church. After breakfast we drove to the San Antonio First Ward and attended Sacrament Meeting. On the way to church we stopped at the San Antonio's historic missions. The people at San Antonio First Ward were very friendly and made us feel welcome. After Sacrament Meeting we returned to the resort.

November 24 we when to Natural Bridge Cavern and Wildlife Park. The cavern were very pretty a little warm in them though. The Wildlive park was really fun take a look at the pictures

November 25 we when to the Alamo and seen a movie about it.

November 26 Lynn and Lynda wanted to ride the segways, so we went down by the Alamo where the segway dealer was. Look at the cute pictures of Lynn and Lynda riding there Segways Lisa you'll like these pictures.

Thanksgiving day November 27 we had dinner at Mi Tierra’s Mexican Restaurant. They served a traditional thanksgiving dinner and everyone but Gary had that. Gary had Mexican steak dinner. I tasted it and it was so much better than mine.

November 28 we drove back to the airport in San Antonio to fly back to Salt Lake City. We drove to Orem and had lunch at Red Lobster before Lynn and Lynda left for Toquerville.

We always have such a fun time when ever were with Lynn and Lynda. Were so blessed to have them in our lives. For those of you that don't know, Lynda and I have been friends since 3rd grade. When Lynda was 14 she moved to Las Vegas and when she married she moved to California and eventually she moved back to Las Vegas and about 6 years ago they moved to Toquerville, Utah But through all this our frienship was always there. Our husband get along will also. How blessed we are. I hope after I show all of you the pictures of them on there Segways they'll still love me.
