We explored a couple different spots over the last few weekends.  Last weekend we decided to stop at a restaurant down by the River walk last Friday.  We don't remember what it was called but we had some crab fritters and salads while we played some Monopoly deal.  We ordered some key lime pie to go and decided to go see the movie Red.  That was Adam's sweetest day present. (After talking to a few people in Texas, no one here seems to know what Sweetest day is. )  Adam enjoyed the movie.  Heres the link to the movie trailer:

Saturday Adam brought me some snacks, flowers,  and games for Sweetest day.  We brought a rotisserie chicken and at some dinner by the pool while we played some games.  We still have to remember how to play domino's, its not as easy as I remember it being, we must be missing something.
 
Sunday we went and checked out a sports bar called Fatso's to watch the Packer game.  They had a really good concept going on.  The place was huge and had a ton of TVs.  Each cluster of TVs had a different game on and a bunch of picnic tables in front of them, so different groups watched their game.  You could always tell when a team was doing good because part of the room would scream.  Unfortunately their food wasn't that great and the service was horrible.  To top it all off, the Packers lost :(

Yesterday we decided to check out the Alamo. We got to walk through the building and explore the grounds.  I'm sure most of you know but the story behind the Alamo is:
The Battle of the Alamo (February 23 – March 6, 1836) was a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution. Following a 13-day siege, Mexican troops under President General Antonio López de Santa Anna launched an assault on the Alamo Mission near San Antonio de Béxar (modern-day San Antonio, Texas). All but two of the Texian defenders were killed. Santa Anna's perceived cruelty during the battle inspired many Texians—both Texas settlers and adventurers from the United States—to join the Texian Army. Buoyed by a desire for revenge, the Texians defeated the Mexican Army at the Battle of San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836, ending the revolution.

 
After this we stopped at a restaurant called Pat O'Briens.  It was a nice little place where they had some live music, an awesome fountain, and a nice outside area.  We played some cards and then left.  We stopped at some little tourist shops and then used a coupon to check out Howl at the Mood Dueling Pianos.  We stopped at Coyote Ugly to check it out since it was practically next door and then we went home.

Today we just layed low and got some chores done.  Adam's leaving early tomorrow to go to Phoenix for the week, and I start a long promotion on the 26th.  Adam gets back on Saturday and the last day of my promo is Sunday and then were off to Oklahoma City!!
