After we moved from Oregon, we kept in touch when I went back to visit my family. Curt and Lexi came to San Antonio for a short visit. We met them on the River Walk to share dinner and drinks at "The Republic of Texas" restaurant, and a walk around downtown at night.
We chatted and enjoyed watching the parade of people go by on the River Walk. Curt's drink of choice was a Dos-a-Rita (Dos Equis served upside down in a margarita).

If you haven't been to San Antonio in December, be sure to come and see the twinkling lights draped in the huge Cypress trees along the River Walk. Even the river barges are decorated with Christmas lights. Here's a photo from 2012's December light display.
Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas. Enjoy all the holidays have to offer.
