For Jacob's fifth birthday, we took him to the Alamo City
San Antonio, Texas!
He started the roadtrip much like any other trip we take him on...
On our way southbound, we stopped to see his aunt, Jeremy's sister, Olivia. She goes to UT in Austin and we all miss her a whole bunch.
We took her to lunch for her birthday (the same day as mine) - she chose Kerbey Lane Cafe on "the drag."
Olivia also gave us a tour of the campus.
He didn't miss Olivia at all, as you can tell.
Eventually, we made our way south to San Antonio and visited Sea World.
Jacob LOVED it.
He touched a sting ray.
He watched and fed the sea lions.
He laughed at the funny shows.
He made BFFs with my cousin, Josh, and his new wife, Melissa.
We all LOVED seeing Shamu.
In the middle of a "Creepy Critters" show, a bird landed right on Jeremy's shoulder and hung out there for a few minutes - that was fun!
We also got lucky with TWO Shamu shoes while we were there - the typical One World show and then a higher energy Halloween themed show.
The next day, we went to visit the Riverwalk and the Alamo.
On our way to the Alamo, Jeremy and I kept saying the word "Alamo."
Jacob randomly started telling us - "there was a big fight at the Alamo when Mexico wanted their state to be bigger but Texas didn't want to be in Mexico. The Texas guys stood on the buildings with cannons and their guns had swords on them." Need I remind you he just turned five?! Smart kid!
Are you seeing a trend here?!
