The San Antonio Temple is one of the smaller temples. It is beautiful and magnificent, just as any other temple in our church. As I walked inside, I just so happened to run into a family that I grew up with in my home ward. It was so crazy to see all the kids again (well, they aren't kids anymore...they are my age!) One of the brothers was getting sealed that day and the whole family was there...what a crazy coincidence!
Between the temple and dinner, we stopped off at a place called Charming Charlie's...it was the cutest store and I can't wait for one to come to Las Vegas!! I did some serious shopping there.
We waited for an hour to get into the best BBQ in TX, and that's the darn truth!
And the infamous Salt Lick in Driftwood, TX
They let you come back behind the counter and take a picture next to the "pit".
It was so great to see Dan & Mae Bell and be with them if only for a weekend!
The place is ALWAYS packed. The last time we came was three years ago, and it was even better than I remembered. They actually built a Salt Lick in the Red Rock Hotel & Casino here in Las Vegas, it opened about three years ago, and let me tell ya, it isn't nearly as good as the REAL thang!
My father-in-law has a small car, as I like to call it! The smart car was teeny tiny and drove like a manual shift transmission, even though it was an automatic.
can you say SMALL?
For some reason, both my back and mark's back was a little outta wack, maybe from driving in such small cars or the airplane ride or something, but Mae Bell kept telling us we needed to get on the inversion table...and so in the minutes before we left for the airport, we hopped on the table and went for a ride. I have to admit, it felt good!
