Duck Valley Fishing Trip

This weekend we took a quick trip to the Duck Valley Reservation to do some trout fishing.  It’s always an adventure there, as you never know what type of weather you will get!  It’s a safe bet to assume you will get at least one torrential downpour at some point in time during the trip, even if it is for just a short moment.  And the WIND!  Oh my goodness.  But the fishing is real good, and that is why we go!  When the wind was too much for me to handle, I curled up in the back of the Jeep on our bed with a book- it was so relaxing.  Take me back, please!

San Antonio

You know how when you live in a city, you never really do any of the touristy activities? It’s such a shame, but it’s the truth! When I lived in Texas, I hated the thought of going to the Riverwalk. It just seemed so boring- it was always there. When we were visiting this last week, we headed to the Riverwalk and had so much FUN! We had great authentic Mexican food at Casa Rio and then walked around looking at the lights and boats.  Not only is it a great place to entertain a toddler (my nephew was so fun to watch taking the lights, ducks, and boats all in) but it is also a great place for an evening stroll for the whole family!

Thanksgiving Week in Texas

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! This last week Chase and I went to Texas to be with my family for the holiday. We did a lot of eating and fishing!  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal (although Chase was laid up with food poisoning all day Thursday so that was a huge bummer) and we also had fresh shrimp that some of our group caught!  We saw sea turtles, jelly fish, and lots of dolphins.  We caught black drum, snappers, sheep’s head, catfish and rockfish.  My nephew, AJ, loved “feeding the Bishes” (aka feeding the fish).  He also got a new game (Break the Ice) so we played that quite a few times!  It was a fun trip.
