Summer Vacation Memories – Exploring Pensacola!

This summer we went to some pretty cool places!  We got to go to San Antonio where we visited the Zoo, the missions, some parks, and ate some of the best Tex-Mex we have ever had!  We got to stay at a water park resort in Sevierville, Tennessee.  After that, we headed up to Virginia where we explored the Eastern Shore with family.  When we were back in Pensacola we didn’t just sit around.  We explored lots of Pensacola and had so much fun doing it! 

We went to the new community pool where the kids went down slides and splashed in the awesome zero entry pool.  We were so excited to hear about a new cupcake store that opened called Oh Snap! Cupcakes.  We went on opening day and had some yummy cupcakes and can’t wait to try some of the new flavors!  We explored some new parks around our area and kept cool with lots of ice cream.  We visited the zoo at Gulf Shores and the kids loved the kangaroos.  We took advantage of the free entrance day for Florida State Parks!  We watched the Blue Angels practice their acrobatics and we picked soooooo many blueberries that I am praying for non stop power to my freezer during this hurricane season! 

We have been in school for two weeks now and just had our first three day weekend.  I am looking forward to catching up on all the blogging from our summer vacations over the next few weeks and I can’t read about all of your trips!

Bridges of the Riverwalk

While in San Antonio, Texas, we did a boat tour of the Riverwalk.  My husband and I have both been on the tour but the kids were excited about the boat ride so we bought tickets and took the tour again.  One of the things I loved seeing were all of the different bridges.  I thought it was interesting that almost every bridge was different and it was one thing that the tour operator never talked about (I don’t think!).  I wasn’t able to get pictures of every bridge because we didn’t have the best seats.

The Riverwalk tours are $8.25 an adult and $2 for children.  The tour is about 35 minutes long which was about 12 minutes too long for my kids.
