On to San Antonio.

Location, Schertz, TX

Today was moving day after 2 plus weeks in Houston. Budd and Brenda arrived in the RV Park about noon on Thursday after visiting New Orleans. Friday night Tim and Diane went to the ballet and Clyda and I stayed with the kids. Ivy wanted a burrito for dinner so we went to Mission Burrito which is new in Houston. Everything is ala carte including what kind of tortilla you want.

Saturday was soccer and Ivy’s game was at 10:30. Budd came along to watch. After the game we had to drive to the Southeast side of Houston for Matthew’s game. It was a 40 mile one way drive. After the game we BBQed at Tim’s and spent the rest of the evening there.

Diane, Budd, Ed and Ivy. Grammy taught her to crochet.

On Sunday we drove again to the Southeast side of Houston to see the San Jacinto monument and the Texas battleship. After touring the ship we ate lunch at the park and then went to the monument. They had recently reopened the elevator to the top so we all went up. It is taller than the Washington Monument but only takes seconds to get to the top. The view is great.

We drove home a different route and stopped at a Rudy’s BBQ for dinner. A great BBQ dinner.

This morning we left around 9:30 after Diane and the kids stopped by for one last goodbye. We will miss them all. We drove west on I-10 towards San Antonio then north on 46 to New Braunfels. We drove back south on I-35 to the RV Park at Schertz. We just kicked back this afternoon but will visit the Alamo tomorrow.
