Vacation Day 4 - the wedding

We woke up and instead of the hotel breakfast we walked to Denny’s (2 blocks away) for breakfast; Grand Slams all around.

We then took the time to walk thru the Alamo. We picked the perfect day to do it they were doing an reenactment of the fall of Alamo. We saw a few camping sites & some did have storytellers giving details about life during that time. We spent some time in the gift shop – so many things to look at. We bought 2 sets of Indian Arrowheads, a postcard (of San Antonio), a Christmas star ornament (metal design), since I collect miniatures and keychains one of each. Also what does every cookbook collector need? Another cookbook – TexMex recipes!!! Cutest little thing the recipes look good. There were some ladies (from the Daughters of the American Revolution) were giving different demonstrations: quilt making , lace making, outside there was a trader, a woman making yarn and then another lady with a wonderful German accent was demonstrating finger knitting. She wrapped the yarn around her fingers to create her project.
After a short rest and clean up break it was time for the wedding. They had chosen a small Non denomination church in the arts village La Villarta. The church is a quaint & small (seats maybe 100 people) with only one stained glass window. The Priest was a short, jolly, Hispanic descent man with a wonderful sense of humor. After the ceremony pictures were taken in the church, in front of the church and on a bridge overlooking the RIVERWALK. The reception was held at a Mexican restaurant – very nice set up the catering menu offered you the appetizer, 3 choices of entree and the dessert Coconut Flan. I got the Fajita entree and Greg got the Chicken entrée – both were very good
