Sunny San Antonio

Hello lovely readers!  While you were all reading about Vegan Oatmeal Craisin Cookies (which has been my most popular post so far, thank you!), my husband and I were celebrating our first anniversary in the lovely city of San Antonio.  I brought back a few pictures to share:

The courtyard at the historic Fairmount Hotel where we stayed. The Fairmount is famous because it is the largest building ever to be moved.

light show at the San Fernando Cathedral

Every night there is a light show at the San Fernando Cathedral set to music. We stopped to watch for a little while.

The remains of our year-old cake

The remains of our year-old cake that we hauled all the way down to San Antonio. The icing slid off as it defrosted so I had to piece it back together.
