You can't come to San Antonio without visiting 'The Alamo.' We saw the movie at the IMAX last night in preparation for todays visit. It was amazing to learn just how bad James Bowie, Davie Crockett and about 150 rebels were massacred by General Santa Ana and about 3,000 of his men. The rebels were incredibly brave and have inspired generations to come. You get a real feel for the battle as you walk through the grounds of the Alamo.(See pic) There are many items on display that were originals.The boys did their best Davie Crockett imitation in the gift shop.(see pic) I used to have my own 'Crockett cap' when I was a little younger than Collin.
We walked around downtown and the River Walk for a couple of hours before heading back to the RV.(see pic) We decided to make it an early evening. We came back and the boys and I played basketball while Kelly talked with a couple from California. Today, 'The Chronicles Of Narnia' came out on video. Keegan and Collin have only seen it about 3 times so Keegan bought it with money he saved up. We ordered pizza and wings and watched the movie.
