The Great, Great, Great Grand Adventure: Getting Ready For Christmas in San Antonio

Posted by Rob Brown on January 2, 2013 in Ancestry Great Adventure

Oh the memories we made in San Antonio, Texas. Swimming, bike rides, learning all about the Alamo in 80-degree weather, a powerful windstorm and really getting into the Christmas spirit.

Our exploration began with a Riverwalk cruise, complete with yummy Mexican food and Christmas caroling with carolers riding in boats along side our boat! The kids loved it!

We traveled to the Alamo and learned all about this pivotal, historical battle. And visited the Texas Rangers Museum and Saloon.

The Live Nativity at the Lutheran Church in downtown was a hit with the kids. They got to pet live animals and experience a recreation of the nativity.

We also spent 2 days hibernating in our motorhome with 3 sick little boys.

And thankfully we survived a powerful storm and with motorhome still intact and fevers gone we headed back on the road to Houston.

Tis the Christmas Season and we are so blessed to be here celebrating with wonderful people around the country. We miss family and friends at home but have felt so welcome here in San Antonio. It has really invited the Christmas Spirit into our motorhome and into our lives. We celebrate our freedoms and the great people who have worked and sacrificed to build the foundations of our country. Happy Holidays!
