A song of old San Antone.

 Nov. 4, 2011

Katie and I made a quick escape from school and work on this Friday afternoon so we could book it to San Antonio. Ryan's band was performing in the BOA Super Regional, and luckily for us, they'd drawn the 8:30 slot, the last preliminary time. That meant we could get there just in time to see them perform.

After our trip down I-35, we were glad to escape Austin traffic and see the Tower of the Americas.

As it turned out, by the time we parked and bought our tickets at the Alamodome, we were able to see a couple of other bands, too!

After seeing not one but TWO shows with butterfly/metamorphosis themes, we were ready to watch "The Diary."

It was a fantastic performance! We were so proud of Ryan and the rest of our band. We were optimistic that RHS would advance to the finals the next day.

Much to Katie's disappointment, we didn't take time to visit the Tower's observation deck. We were hungry! Besides, we'd been there, done that. Instead, we checked into our hotel and then walked out the back door to the Riverwalk.

 Dinner at Rio Rio awaited us. Katie liked her vegetarian burrito,

 and I loved my portabello fajitas.

Of course, it was fun just to stroll along the Riverwalk and take in the sights and sounds.

And as Texans, we could not be in downtown San Antonio without paying our respects to the Cradle of Texas Liberty.


 We had fun attempting self-portraits.

Flying down 35, hangin' in the Alamodome, eating along the Riverwalk, strolling in front of the Alamo. Now THAT'S the way to spend a Friday night!
