Then what happened?
On our last day/evening in San Antonio, we did the obligatory River Walk dinner.
The River Walk is fun....it's not that we ever stay down there by the River Walk because it's just not THAT much of a draw for us. You go down there, the kids look at the ducks in the water, and the boats, and you wait for a while to eat at a restaurant...and you do, and it's fun....and then it's just not as entertaining for the kids as much as it was when they first got there....and you're on edge the whole time hoping that nobody in your crew ends up in the water...and then as a mom you start examining how dirty the water looks...and what must live in there (bacteria & otherwise)....and then you have the mental play-by-play of how it's gonna go down when one of your crew DOES end up in the water....and by then your shoulder muscles are kinked up to your ears, you're ready to go, you see Dirty Nelly's and want to go in for a drink, but you can't because your kids are with you, and you end up wondering why you brought these kids on vacation to begin with.
That's how it goes for everybody, right?
