No trip to Texas would be complete without a trip to the Alamo. I personally prefer the Alamo Drafthouse Theatre, but we were also able to stop at the actual Alamo long enough to snap this picture. Our true destination was the San Antonio Zoo. You will probably be surprised to hear that it was a hot day, but there were enough shady spots in the zoo to make it tolerable for a couple of hours. My niece enjoyed seeing a variety of animals before we headed back to the joy that is known as air conditioning.
