Chicago Girls' Weekend in San Antonio

Megan and Melissa were two of the first people I met when I moved back to Chicago, so I was thrilled that they would be able to join me for a weekend of fun in San Antonio especially because Megan now lives in Austin and Melissa in Ann Arbor.

They got to the hotel around 10:45....I was of course asleep, but rallied to go down to the Riverwalk for a snack.  I took them to Boudro's for what they both agreed was the best guacamole they've ever had.  Sadly we didn't take pictures of the ponchos that were provided on each chair for the riverside dining.

After sleeping in a little we grabbed a quick breakfast before heading to my spinning obsession JoyRide.  After some showers we headed to Historic Market Square for lunch...our walk was quite festive as it was along a parade route.

Then we rallied and got on the bikes to head to the Missions.  Nothing like an active vacation.

We got back at the perfect time for cocktails in the hot tub to rest our sore butts.

Then it was off to the Pearl district, which is where the old Pearl Brewery was, that has now been converted to shops, restaurants, condos, and more.  We ate at the Granary which called itself a BBQ place but took a modern spin on that, very good but don't go if you are starving.

We then did a slow drive by of the San Fernando lightshow since we were all exhausted.

No sleeping in on Sunday as we were up an at 'em for the River City Run (round 2 for me!)
 The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing poolside or in the hot tub - fun times!
