Deep in the Heart of Texas

Last week, Eric and I went to Texas to visit my family one more time before we take off to New Zealand for a year. We had a great time eating good food and spending time with the fam.

One day while we were there, we went down to Austin and San Antonio. We stopped in Austin to visit my old roommate, Janssen, and that was a lot of fun. It was exciting to see her and her new house.

Then we continued on down to San Antonio where we went to the Alamo and went on the River Walk. I hadn't been tot he Alamo since I was about 7, so I was glad to be able to go again. It is a very cool place, and I highly recommend that you go some time. After all, it is FREE! The River Walk was also a lot of fun. I'd like to go back some time when it's a little warmer because it is also free!

Jon would like to know why you didn't call us. You people are in big trouble.

We lived in Texas for five years. (Plantboy was the groundskeeper at the Houston temple.) We spent our 5th anniversary in San Antonio and went a couple of other times too. I really love that city. Houston was not my favorite, but I really loved our ward there. So strong.

Good luck in NZ. Keep up the blogging so I can be insanely jealous of all your gorgeous pictures.
