San Antonio

Wow!!! What a great week. Grace and I left last Wednesday for San Antonio. We went for a Beth Moore, Living Proof Live event. It was so wonderful!

This was the first time Grace flew and she was quite nervous. She did really well, although when we finally got to SA she was asking if we had to fly home. She had some ear trouble on the way down and was not too eager to get back on a plane. We left the house at 6:30 am and did not arrive in SA until about 5:30 their time. So, she was pretty much wiped out. She fell asleep while watching the Olympics that night. So cute!

Then next day we swam, headed to the Alamo and went on a Riverboat cruise around Riverwalk. It is so beautiful! We meet 14 Siesta friends and had just a wonderful time. We all had dinner at the RainForest Cafe afterwards. Grace had a blast. She thought is was just the funnest thing.

On Friday evening the conference began. Before going we had lunch at Denny's...yes, Denny's. Grace was just dying to go there. Don't ask me why but she was. We then headed to the Alamodome for the conference. There we meet lots of Siestas and got to meet Wendy, aka MomofEleven. We both just love her. She's so sweet! Grace invited them to come to our house.

The conference was so good. Beth was incredible and Travis Cottrell did an amazing job of leading worship, which he always does. After the conference on Saturday we got to participate in a question/answer session with Beth and her daughters, Amanda and Melissa. It was so much fun. We really had a great time.

We just returned home yesterday. It was a great time. I'll update more later.

K and G,
I loved getting to see you. It was wierd, I told my friends because the two of you and several of the siestas seemed so close to me, it was as if we had known each other for years.

Grace it such a doll and reminded me so much of my little Sally. I plan to add a new link sometime this week to all my siestas. I can't wait to view the picture we all took together and I was so glad the two of you were in my group.

I hope the flight home went smoothly, and my prayers are with G as she starts a new school year today.

love you both dearly,
wendy-mom of eleven

Oh, oh, oh, I almost forgot to add, when you and G were looking into each other's eyes saying the commissioning, I almost couldn't take it. What a holy, precious moment God gave you with your daughter. Whew! Somebody say, "Glory"!
love you,

I am so happy that you all had such a fun time and that you had time to site see! I have trouble with my ears when I fly too, so I understand! I went with a church group and was only able to go for the conference and not the Siesta stuff, but I was blessed to get to see you two in the hotel. The weekend was wonderful, but it also went by too quickly!

It was so nice meeting you and Grace. I have the sweetest picture of you both from Sat.
I have been posting our trip one day at at time and will get that on there next.
I also have an extra print if you'd like me to mail you one.
I'll e-mail you later.
Grace is just precious. I think it's such a blessing to have a daughter and I know you feel the same way.
I loved every part of our trip.
Glad you made it home safe and sound.

I put that adorable picture of you and Grace on my blog. You two are so cute! I'm so glad I had a chance to meet you in person. Sorry we didn't get to talk more.
Maybe next time. ;)
I can't quit thinking about the whole trip. I had a great time.
Talk to you soon,

I just popped by your site from the siesta blog... I just so enjoyed seeing some of the young girls there last weekend. What a blessing.
