Sniff, sniff... Friday was our last day at the Hill Country Hyatt. Have I mentioned I love this place? Have I convinced you to take a trip there yet? We had another great day just taking advantage of all the fun activities at the hotel. The girls' cousin 'I' came over to spend the morning with us, and the girls thought they were hot stuff showing him around and introducing him to the lazy river. Elise won the jackpot when a family said, "We have to leave for the airport, so you are welcome to have these floats." Ahhh... the coveted dolphin float... Elise had been begging for one all week, and now it was hers! We had lunch delivered poolside - complete with froofy island drinks. Life is good.
Is it just me, or is it a little scary how tall Addie looks in this picture? 'I' is four, and she is just 17 months! What do you bet she weighs more than he does?
The agenda for the afternoon included face painting and ice cream.
There's my mom!
Family vacation heaven, I tell ya!
Now I get to the one really rotten part of our trip (well, in addition to the flight, but I'm trying hard to forget that part).... dinner Friday night. I hate to even mention it because it does put a small chink in the armor of the HCH since the concierge is the one who gave us the recommendation. I'll try not to hold a grudge. My parents had come in town for a couple days, so I asked the concierge for a recommendation for a Mexican restaurant for us. She recommended a place called Perico's. I do not second the recommendation. The 20 minute quoted wait was an hour. Service was awful. Food was awful, and IN WHAT UNIVERSE IS IT OK TO PUT AMERICAN CHEESE ON NACHOS??? Hello??? American cheese? I shudder just thinking about it. That's almost worse than North Carolina nachos with their drippy, melted cheese goo making the chips all soggy. At least with those, you know what you are getting as soon as you see the plate. These nachos looked like authentic Texas nachos but then BAM! the smell of the American cheese knocks you off your feet. I'm really thinking Ann's Nacho Hut is in my future. Any venture capitalists out there wanna get in on this? Anyway, it was a bad night and it put me in a foul mood, but s'mores back at the HCH put me back in my happy place, so all was good.
The next morning, we said good-bye to the Hill Country Hyatt to embark on the next leg of our San Antonio adventure!
