Weekend Update



Last weekend my friend Tom, his wife Nicolle, and their baby came to San Antonio for a visit. I've worked with Tom for 11 years. I've always said he's like an older brother to me. Last June Tom and Nicolle were married. She is so sweet and I'm so happy they found each other. Nicolle lived in Guatemala for 2 years helping underprivileged kids. So, we had lots to talk about. :)

I was worried about their visit because they live in Wisconsin, where the summers are nice. It's been so hot in Texas, 100 degrees or higher most days. We did a lot of outdoor activities but we survived. We visited the San Antonio Missions, the Riverwalk, the Alamo, and Old Market Square. We took a walking tour through the King William District (beautiful old homes), we took a boat ride, and we had lots of good food.

I wasn't ready for them to leave on Sunday. That's good friends! :)

Aww, it sounds like y'all had a really great time! My brother was stationed in San Antonio a few years ago before his unit was deployed to Iraq. I went to visit him while he was there and we went to The Alamo and Riverwalk. I loved it! I'm sure your friends really enjoyed their visit. :)
