We enjoyed Memorial Day Weekend RVing in San Antonio.
We stayed at Traveler’s World RV Resort. It is on the pricier side, but it is a very well-kept park with nice amenities. And it is in a great location. We are learning that we prefer to stay at lower cost parks with less amenities when we plan to be outside the park most of the time. Amenities are nice if we plan to hang around the park more. You live and you learn, right?
We rolled in, unhooked, leveled the RV, put out the slides and awning, hooked up electrical, sewer and water. THEN we saw that one of our slides was pushing up against the electrical box. We unhooked everything, put the slides back in, hitched back up and moved the RV to a better spot. Then we repeated all of the above and settled into our spot. I believe we will have a better awareness of our slides in the future. You live and you learn, right?
Night one we headed to the River Walk. Keeping 10 children in the narrow walkway and making sure no one fell into the water was not relaxing, by an means, but it was fun. We paired older kids with younger ones holding hands. Ryan held River and I pushed Bravely in a stroller. We took our children on their very first boat ride ever (other than Rhythm in China). They loved it. River, our two year old, was so intrigued by the guide because he kept saying her name. After the boat ride we waited a really long time to have our “party of 12” seated at the Rainforest Cafe. I think we will pre-figure food in the future. You live and you learn, right?
The next day we headed to explore the Natural Bridge Caverns. We really had no idea how this would go. Would our little ones scream in fear? Would River and Bravely like being worn in pouches for that long? I decided I better prepare our littles ones. I showed them a couple pictures and videos and told them how exciting the caverns would be.
And…we all loved it! Every single one of us.
We walked down the equivalent of 18 stories and then back up.
The caverns were truly an underground work of art.
River and Bravely both loved riding in the pouches. Ryan and I got in a great workout as well…sweat and all!
Not one of the kids complained and even little Treasure, age 4, walked all that way down and up with ease.
The Natural Bridge Caverns are definitely worth visiting!
Hydration and a snack were a must-have after all that inclined walking. After a quick google search, we decided to check out Steel City Pops. It was a very big hit!
Little Bravely had her very first lick of something sweet, and she loved it!
Energy renewed, we played outside Steel City Pops for awhile.
Of coarse, we went downtown to check out The Alamo. We held up the lines a bit as our older kids wanted to read every single word on every sign. They soaked up every bit of history they could.
Sunday morning we all slept in, hung out at the RV and had sandwiches for lunch. Then we headed to the 1PM service at City Church Downtown. We love visiting different churches. We really liked this one.
Sunday evening we wanted to do something fun and free, so we went to Pearsall Park. There were a lot of people there, but all our kids had a blast and didn’t mind the crowd.
Monday morning it took us about 2.5 hours to get all of us fed and dressed; move our clothes, groceries and stuff out of our RV into the back of our van; put away our outdoor gear; unhook electric, water and sewer; get the slides in and hitch to the truck. We are looking forward to being able to leave everything in and moving right along to the next place in the future!
