Fueled by Sbux, we set out Saturday morning. The kids played lots of Uno with Grandma and then Rainbow Loomed in the back of the van. :-)
We had to stop at Buc-ee's to show JB's parents the best rest stop/convenience store/gas station/deli/bakery/gift shop on earth. :-D Leave it to Texas to even have huge, famous, fabulous pit stops!!! Their bathrooms really are "the cleanest in America", and devotees have elevated Buc-ee's to cult status. It's a Texan must-see:
Upon arriving in San Antonio, we checked into the gorgeous Hotel Contessa before setting out to explore.
