Vacation; all I ever wanted! Vacation; had to get away!

San Antonio, Texas!
a.k.a. Our First Family Vacation in WAY TOO LONG!

Tater Tot and me on the River Walk. A stroll down the River Walk is a must for every San Antonio trip, as far as I'm concerned. Even on a Texas Hot day (101 degrees this day) it seems a few degrees cooler down on the shady walkways that border the river.

Tater Tot is a good photographer! He too this shot of Copper and me in front of the Gruene Watertower just before one of the best dinner's I've had in a while!

Just North of San Antonio in the river community of New Braunfels there is the sub-community called Gruene (pronounced 'green'). Gruene is a historic cotton town, home to Gruene Hall which is the oldest continually run dance hall in the State of Texas. There are also several antique stores, a general store, several bed and breakfast options and two notably delicious restaurants. The Gruene River Grill has a Peppercorn Steak that is TO DIE FOR! The Grist Mill Restaurant has the best Chicken Cesar Salad I've ever had in my life. I literally had to tell Copper to take it away from me before I made myself even more miserable! I just couldn't stop eating it!

"Remember the Alamo!"
This is a must for every visit to San Antonio. This wonderful monument to an amazing time in Texas History is absolutely worth seeing. While we were there, they were having a ceremony to remember all correctional officers injured or killed in the line of duty. We didn't attend the ceremony but we were inside what was a barracks during the famous battle when the 21 gun salute sounded outside. So we got a real sense of what it must have sounded like during the battle!

If you ever go to San Antonio, definitely take time to visit The Buckhorn Museum
With over 520 species of wildlife on display its not just a 'hunter's paradise - trust me - that's not my thing - it's a great chance to see and learn about a lot of different animals.
In addition to all the real animals on display they also have a saloon. You can stroll through the museum while drinking your favorite 'adult beverage' or root beer. There is also a large section of the museum dedicated to the rough riding law enforcement agency known as the Texas Rangers.

There is so much more in San Antonio than we could do in our short trip. Sea World, Schlitterbahn (in New Braunfels), the San Antonio Zoo, etc. Breakfast at Mi Tierra, Lunch at Mi Tierra, Dinner at Mi Tierra, Midnight snack at Mi Tierra... If you are looking for a great place to visit this summer that doesn't get so ever run with tourists that its unbearable I highly reccomend this Texas jewel as a great option.

These former Abercrombie and Fitch models pretty much made it in the business after landing a job with Bruce Weber years ago. For the majority of them, D&G glasses was their first paying modeling job.Franklin Marshall T-shirts great to see these guys continue to work the fashion shows after so many years of hard work and dedication! Here are a few of the many models that were busy working for the past few months in Milan, Paris, and Berlin for the Winter Fashion Shows!!!Louis Vuitton Sale
