Christmas and New Years
Sorry folks - I just can't seem to work the photo uploads on this blog site. It seems to have a mind of its own as to the order it uploads photos and where it places them. I need to search out a new website for posting because this is quite frustrating to me. Enough complaining....
We have enjoyed our Christmas here in San Antonio. Here are some photos. The first photo is of dinner on Christmas day here at the RV Resort. The resort provided the turkeys and hams and we each brought side dishes and desserts. There were about 150 of us sharing a family meal with lots of laughter and fun.
Two nights later several of us got together to enjoy a pork roast dinner as the sun was setting. The southerners showed us northerners how to slow cook a roast all day in a smoker. It was good! It got dark on us quickly so we had to utilize the lights to finish dinner. It was Nells' birthday so we naturally had to celebrate his birthday with a cake!
Doug and I went to San Marcos, TX to shop at some outlet stores several days after Christmas. We couldn't believe all the vehicles we saw from Mexico. Goes to prove the grass is greener on the other side. We go to Mexico border cities to shop and they come to our outlet malls to shop. On the way back from shopping, we stopped in Guerne, TX (It is said "Green") and had dinner at the historic Guerne Grist Mill. It was a great place overlooking the Guadaluppe River - the same river we were camped by in Kerrville before coming to San Antonio. The whole town is stuck in years gone by and is very quaint. We enjoyed dinner and a walk through the General Store.
On New Year's Eve Doug had to take a soak in the hot tub. Since I was still getting over my terrible cold, I decided to just take some photos. No one was in the pool that night due to the temperature being down in the 60's. Homer has a German Shepherd buddy here at the campground. He is 6 months old and the two of them love to play together in the enclosed dog run. Homer has learned some tricks - I'll try to get some photos of them for you all to enjoy.
