Over New Years, Ty and I took a "Babymoon" to San Antonio. IT WAS AWESOME! I guess we really needed a break :) My Dad and Jennifer watched Colt in Abilene while we spent 3 luxurious days at the Westin La Cantera. When we checked in late on New Years Eve, the hotel didn't have a room with a king bed that we had reserved, so they upgraded us from the regular hotel to a casita (a private little duplex of larger rooms that surround a private swimming pool and have their own patios). Our room in the casita had a queen bed, so the second night we asked if any kings had become available, and they upgraded us again to a suite in the casitas with a king bed and gave us a golf cart to get back and forth between the main hotel and our room! We spent the whole first day at the resort - got massages, pedicures, breakfast in bed, room service, and a gourmet dinner where we were the only ones in the restaurant. While in SA we went to a Spur's game, the Alamo, the Guinness Book of World Records museum, the SA zoo, worked out several times (a luxury for me!), and actually watched a movie at the theater (another luxury for us parents). Thanks to everyone in Abilene for chipping in to watch Colt while we were gone! Here are some pics from our trip and from Colt's trip to Abilene: This is the living room of our suite.
Ty was asked to be interviewed at the Spurs game. This seems to be a pattern when we attend sporting events, so I thought I'd commemorate the event with a picture.
Here's us at the Alamo. I hadn't been since elementary school, so thought we should go. It is way smaller than I thought it would be!

While in Abilene, Colt had his first zoo experience. He loved feeding the giraffes and watching the monkeys.

Have a great day! :p

Isn't the Westin La Cantera soooo nice! That's awesome that you kept getting upgrades too. Glad you guys had a great time. You will be even more glad that you took time for yourselves after your baby is born.
