San Antonio, TX

Saturday we went to Fiesta Texas. Basically, it's San Antonio's version of Mardi Gras and lasts for 10 days. Lots of places to eat, lots of touristy souvenirs and LOTS of people. Some poeple were even wearing beads. It was so crowded all you could do was shuffle along with the crowd to get anywhere. Erica said the bigger party is called NIOSA (Nightime in old San Antonio) and is more for the younger crowd. You have to pay to get into the street parade and you spend all night getting your boobs and butt pinched. Now, for all of you that know Rod know that I can get that ALL night long at home for FREE! Oh well, it was interesting but just like New Orleans it's something to experience once and that's enough. Here's some pictures.

I told you it was crowded.

Rod was quite the handyman yesterday. Yes, a HANDYMAN! He took off the rear jack that was damaged on a steep campground site at Hard Labor Creek State Park. We thought about bending it back but read on the Everest forum that once they're bent they will just keep bending so we bit the bullet and finally bought a new set. The other one wasn't damaged but since they come as a pair we might as well have matching ones.

Tomorrow John & Erica are coming over for dinner. We're having steaks, baked potatoes and grilled veggies. Yummy. I promise I'll try and remember to take some pictures.

I figured if anyone would appreciate that part of the fiesta it would be you, Lisa. :)
