What a wonderful time my oldest daughter and I had visiting our cousins in Austin, Texas, my birthplace.

We had  lots of fun acting like tourists and taking many pictures at different locations.

Downtown Austin is filled with unique and interesting places.  We came across  the Bat Bar.

For those that have never been to Austin, there are thousands of bats that live under the Congress Bridge and come out in the evenings to amaze many tourists.

We  also walked to the State Capitol.  It’s such a beautiful building.

On my list of things to see was the old Briskill Hotel,  it’s been around since 1886.

San Antonio was our next stop. The river walk was crowded with tourists like us. The water looked so refreshing on this hot, humid day.  It’s beautiful with all the sidewalk cafes and the boats that cruise the river.

Before we went to the river walk we visited the San Antonio Mexican Market square, which I love because it reminds me of Mexico.  While there, we had lunch at the famous and popular restaurant, Mi Tierra.  This is the most colorful and vibrant restaurant I have ever been to.  With Mariachis singing and the beautiful decorations hanging from the ceiling and walls you feel like its one big party, plus the food is delicious!

We also had the pleasure of visiting The Magnolia Market and Square in Waco.  This was on my daughter’s and my bucket list. What a thrill to be there to see the huge silos and the gardens, plus the shops.

Here we are with our cousins that so graciously took us to visit these places.  We are so appreciative of their kindness and Texas hospitality.

There was so much more, but I don’t like to write long blogs. But this is one vacation that I won’t forget!💜❤️💜❤️

P.S. If you ever get an opportunity you should visit Texas, there is so much to see and so much history.
