Let me just say, I loooove showers in the United States. Especially in hotels because there is ALWAYS hot water...even if you want to take a shower that lasts an hour. And they usually have awesome shower heads...with pulsating water. And I could even drink the water if I wanted to, I didn't, but I totally could have. We got ready and headed out to San Anton. The drive wasn't bad at all. Probably 2.5 hours with one rest stop. I got to talk to Non for like an hour and a half on the phone which made the drive seem shorter. We got a text from Yuyo that he had made it to San Antonio and he needed to know where to take a shuttle bus, the problem was, we were just arriving to the city! haha. He made it before us. So...we went to the airport to pick him up and SQUEEEEEZED into the car. Me and Yuyo and a bunch of stuff were crammed in the backseat. It was funny. I wish I'd had a picture. We seriously drove around downtown (which is really pretty...I wish we had more time here) for 2 hours looking for a hotel and trying to decide what to do. So there must be something going on this weekend that we didn't know about because every hotel we checked, there were no rooms. So weird! We checked 6 different hotels. Finally, we decided to get out, get something to eat and walk around the city for awhile before we drove back out to the airport to find a room. Some pics of the afternoon...

|Awesome sign. I bet they're total Guids.|
|We remembered the Alamo, but didn't want to pay to get in...|
|Dud had a full rack of ribs, fries, and slaw...and then it was gone.|
haha. He's a beast!
So yeah, it was a wonderful weekend and I wish I could rewind it. I love being with Dud and Tar and Yuyo (and Non and Hay), and I hate leaving, ugh. Oh well. I just pray that everything goes smoothly crossing the border tomorrow. I have all of my paperwork and everything in line, so hopefully they won't unpack everything in the car, because it was artfully and strategically packed by Dud himself. I have the best family ever. Seriously. No wonder I miss them so much. Ok that's it, I don't want to get emo. If you are praying, you can pray that our journey tomorrow goes well and that we make it to Puebla no problem. I'll definitely get to see lots of Mexico! That will be nice. Even though everything on the news is negative, it really is a beautiful country. So much of it is natural and untouched. You can imagine how the Spaniards found it when they landed there. You can also pray for Dad and Charlie as they travel from San Antonio to Atlanta tomorrow. I hope they can get on the first flight. Their wake up call is 3:30 am...that would stink if they didn't get on the first flight. And also for me feeling homesick. I knew this was going to spark it again. I'm sooo glad I got to hang out though.
Ok...that is all!! Until next time...besos from America!! Thanks for reading and I love you guys!
