|This is the first view I got of the Alamo.|
We didn't start our tour at the Alamo itself. First we went to a museum nearby that gave a history of the area. A large display table had a model of what the Alamo looked like originally. It was actually quite a large place and not just the one church building. It was originally a mission place. No pictures or recordings of the model was aloud (don't ask me why) so I can't post any here. :(
After the little museum We began our tour of the Alamo. It was very crowded that day but even with all the noise when I stepped into the stone church building it felt special to me. It had a certain air about it that made me want to walk quietly and just look. Although it looked small on the outside it felt very big on the inside. Again no pictures were aloud of the inside of the building so I have none to share. :(
When finished looking around on the inside of the building we went back outside. There was an audio tour offered so we took our little black wands and hung them over our necks. Numbers on signs corresponded with our black stick and we punched them in to hear what they had to say about that particular spot.
|The baby had a long day. Isn't he sweet? :)|
By the time we were done at the Alamo we were hungry so we headed over to Chipotle Mexican Grill for a late lunch. Yummy, healthy food, where I don't have to worry about what's in it. :)
I am sorry for all these posts being in a wacky order. It gets kinda hard to keep up with everything when your on a trip. Things happen so fast. :)
