The first night we came in from swimming and sat by the fireplace in one of the lounges after grabbing a bite to eat. The girls can have fun anywhere and make up all kinds of activities.
Seriously! They had us rolling most of the time and it wasn’t just the wine we were drinking…promise.
We laughed so hard when we went back to the room to change and these two stopped, dropped and made a quick sock swap in the hallway.
If you read a lot of “best places to eat” type write ups, this restaurant receives mixed reviews. It is as Mexican as you come with the colorful decorations and often there are mariachis playing and some would say it’s just a tourist location. This was my third time to dine at Mi Tierra and y’all I almost licked the plate. I rarely order enchiladas anymore but these were amazing!
We browsed the market area and the girls found these wrestling masks which were silly but we had to snap quick because it was against the rules to be trying them on. Oopsie.
The girls did find these headbands so appropriate for them both. They were just too grown up walking around looking at everything. We really hoped to ride the boat along the River Walk and visit the Alamo but the weather just did not cooperate.
Need just one more amazing reason to stay at the JW Marriott San Antonio? The bell man who carried our luggage to our room at check in took note we were celebrating Carly’s 11th birthday and had these cookies sent to our room. He was just outstanding and even sent an extra robe so both girls could have one.
Tuesday morning and we needed to check out but, you guessed it, it was finally not raining! We grabbed the girls and hit the pool as soon as the slides opened at 10am.
It was the best time even though the weather was not 100% perfect.
This is a developing area with restaurants, a culinary school and a new hotel, Hotel Emma, which looks like a great couples retreat.
Lots of great art and scenery and they even hold a summer dance hall series.
Our main reason for heading down to the Pearl, however, was to eat lunch at the Bakery Lorraine. Let me tell you, this tomato soup and cheese toast was everything after a rainy few days! Cutest little restaurant.
