2013.04.26 Friday (San Antonio)

Technically, checked in to the hotel "last night", but really it was part of Friday already.  Apparently San Antonio has an event called "Fiesta San Antonio" that is going on right now.  I have no idea what that is, never even heard of it and we don't really live that far away.

Spent late night walking around by the Alamo and Riverwalk.  Cool stuff, surprising amount of people out partying on a "work night".

Headed back to the hotel for some sleep.

Woke up, sort of.  Kelc fed the car meter while I spent a good hour being groggy.  Started the drive towards the first destination, ended up zig-zagging around town because of the parade and festivities of Fiesta San Antonio.

Zoo parking was completely packed.  Spent a chunk of time at the Japanese / Chinese ? garden nearby.  Saw some cool little ducklings and nice variety of plants.

The Zoo parking opened up a bit, we snagged a spot then started the trek in.  Pretty sure we saw all the animals.

Left in the evening, decided that it was too late to do some of the other destinations that we had planned.  Tried stopping by the San Marcos outlets for fun, but we were too exhausted to really care about buying anything.

Headed home.
