Down South Where I (Wanna) Stay……

This past weekend, we went down to San Antonio for the long weekend, because we had nothing better to do. Just kidding. I’ll tell you why, later.

We got to see the Terminator(Aspen) and spend some time with family for Jaelan’s birthday. But, more importantly, we got away from the blistering cold! We did come back to about half a foot of snow.

I was able to check out a couple of coffee spots, Local Coffee and Press Coffee. Both were awesome spots and served a great cortado. I found Press Coffee a little cozier and less crowded. Xavier and I tried out the Esquire Tavern on the Riverwalk for desserts and cocktails for Valentine’s. I highly recommend. Great space and atmosphere, and a little history. We had the VDay special and the pulled pork sandwiches, and the Bitter Flip cocktail. We couldn’t squeeze in Fiddy Shades, but maybe that was a good thing?

We also went on a hike with the girls at a nearby park for VDay. May just be a new tradition. Right before we finished:

Xavi: How many miles have we hiked?
Aspen: 5 days!! We walked for 5 days, Xavi!! (She sounded angry)

I think she was tired by then, lol. It was only a couple of miles, jeez.

Here are a few more photos. Sadly, I did not get any shot of the Riverwalk, next time. Have a great rest of the week!! 🙂

Hike! November!

This past weekend turned out to be gorgeous weather wise, so we decided to take advantage, and take a hike, about 4 miles. There was a slight wind and a little chill, but it was very clear and super sunny. Too beautiful for a November up here, I’m told. It was pretty hilly at some points of the hike, so it got to be a little workout pushing the stroller up and down the trail.

Of course, we didn’t embark without a battle. Aspen refused to wear her boots and was insistent on wearing mismatched socks with her ballerina flats. She had a ginormous fit all the way to the car, so I decided to give in and let her win. SIGH. Can’t win them all. So, excuse her mismatched socks and flats in some of the photos.

It was too nice not to take photos of the girls, so I thought I’d share some of them.

Happy Monday and have a great week!
