Fiesta Parade!

San Antonio is knows for many things ... The Alamo, our amazing river walk, Sea World, Fiesta TX, the Museums, world class shopping, roller coaster"ish" highways, and of course the Spurs but if you really want to experience San Antonio, you have to come during Fiesta week! There are so many things to see and do, including the Battle of Flowers day parade. We were lucky enough to get tickets right behind my baby sister Elizabeth and her family. Even though it rained for a good half hour before the start of the parade, Abbey, Daniel and I had such a good time cheering on the bands, picking out our favorite hoses from the groups as they cantered by, ooh"ing" and ahh"ing" over the beautiful Princesses, their amazing gowns and their choice of silly shoes, eating over priced goodies (funnel cake ... YUMMY) and waving till our arms were sore.
Abbey and I both thought this float was the best ... Daniel, of course, liked a space themed one. Oh and Abbey picked out another monkey to add to our growing silly collection.


  1. Sounds like a fun day!! The float is beautiful. Abby's cute outfit matches the float. She could have jumped onto it and completely fit in!! :)
