This weekend brought my sister to town with my awesome niece and nephew. So that meant that we needed to find a way to entertain them for the weekend.
Which meant a trip to Kiddie Park, a really old amusement park in San Antonio.
Honestly, the rides here haven’t changed since I was little.
My sister and niece, she looks sleepy, she had just gotten off a ride in this photo and did not know what to think.
My Dad and nephew rode a few rides together. I am surprised they let my Dad on the ride, which isn’t really designed for anyone much larger than my nephew. On this ride, the machine raises the UFO’s and helicopters up in the air. However, their vehicle never got off the ground.
Saturday night, I joined some coworkers down at the friendly spot for a beer. I had heard good things about this place and it was all confirmed.
Huge beer selection, really chill atmosphere, plus it is all outdoors. The only downside is that it is in Southtown, and you have to park 5 blocks away just to get to it.
And here it is. This is not a Cinnamon Roll; this, weighing in at 3 pounds, is the King of Cinnamon Rolls. Between the 5 of us, I think we accomplished about a pound of it, and then surrendered.
I had to stop and get a picture of Lulu on my way out.
Sunday, I decided I needed another adventure. I was looking for another park to ride my bike in, and so I headed down to Brackenridge Park.
My first stop was the Tea Gardens, which I have to say are awesome.
I then headed into the main park to stroll around and I saw this little train. Never knew this was here.
While walking around I came upon this bird. Not sure what kind of bird it is. I am going to say it is a type of Duck, since it was near the water.
I took this shot about two feet away from the bird, so it is safe to say that even though it is wild. It is very used to humans.
I decided it was hot after this short 2 mile hike and began to head back home after this. But first I needed to make a short stop downtown. I am working on a photo project with a group of friends (more on this later) and I needed to head downtown to get a shot.
This is not the shot for the project, however I thought this building was cool and decided to shoot it for a bit anyway.
The Emily Morgan Hotel in downtown San Antonio.
Update: Thanks to a friend of mine the duck is a Moscovy Duck.
