The restaurant is located right on the river so we had gorgeous views of all the flowering trees and bushes overflowing down to the river bank. It felt like a scene right out of an old, classic film.
After brunch we headed over to Morgan's Wonderland, which is a play land that has all sorts of different playgrounds, little rides and activities for kids to do. The little boys were in heaven! They had so much fun discovering all the different things to do there, they played on all the playgrounds, rode all the ride, swung on all the swings and experimented with all the science oriented activities. It was so fun to watch them all have so much fun. My favorite thing here was the carousel, it was the most magical, colorful and unique carousel I have ever seen!
We spent the majority of the day at Morgan's Wonderland and had to eventually pull the boys away to try and make it to the Alamo before it closed. We made a quick stop at the hotel to return the cars and to take a quick "freshen up" break then we walked to the Alamo which is just a few blocks up from our hotel.
We passed this building a lot in our travels back and forth from Alamo square to our hotel and I loved the design of it. The whole city of San Antonio has a lot of Art Deco flare and details which makes for such a beautiful and memorable city.
I was excited to share my Alamo cookies with the family at the actual Alamo!
Pictures weren't allowed inside the building, but I did sneak a few pictures of the plaques honoring the heroes of the Alamo. These plaques lined the entire far wall of the mission, many men gave up their lives in the name of freedom. I am so grateful for all the soliders, families and lives that sacrifced or were sacrificed, so that our nation could enjoy everything that comes with being a free country.
The cookies came in all sorts of fun shapes, the Alamo and the state of Texas, were my favorites.
The Crockett hotel over looks the Alamo, so even though Davy Crockett died in the battle, he is still watching over the mission.
This is one of the back buildings in the mission complex, I thought the stone work was so intricate and beautiful!
By now we were all starving, and ready for a big dinner. Tonight we dined at Fogo De Chao, a brazilian steak house that is similar to Tuscanos or Rodizio Grill but just a little bit nicer. The boys were in absolute heaven, all of them said that this is now their favorite restaurant and asked to go here for dinner every night that we had left in Texas. It was amazing!
I loved their silverware
Even though we were all pretty stuffed and had thrown in the towel for the meats, our meal wouldn't have been complete with out a sweet ending. My dad always insists on getting dessert no matter where we are, it's one of the things I love most about him. We got a couple of desserts and passed them around the table, their presentation was stunning!
