Two of Ben's best friends from High School, Morgan and Geoff, just so happen to be married and spent a week visiting us at the end of January. We couldn't have been more excited to host them; to show them around our city and to enjoy spending time with them.
The Cotti's have three kids and their youngest, just 2 months old, we met for the first time this trip. Finn and Fox loved having playmates everyday. Finn met his match, Alex. She is just as busy and speedy as he is. It was fun watching them play together.

What is a trip to San Antonio without seeing the Alamo and going for a ride in a boat along the famous Riverwalk?
Caught these kiddos for a quick second as they ran around the grounds of the Alamo.
Day trip to Austin, Texas
We started the morning off right and stuffed ourselves with delicious Gourdough's donuts. A bacon and maple donut? Yes, please! Their combinations are amazing, weird and delicious. We toured the Texas State Capital which is absolutely beautiful. We started counting how many times the word, "Texas" is inscribed throughout it (on the chandeliers, door handles, walls etc.) and lost count real fast! Go Texas pride! Afterwards, we ate lunch at Hop Doddy's Burgers… interesting burger combinations, garlic truffle fries and salted carmel milk shakes... Austin knows food! We took our pics outside the graphitti painting of the Austin billboard and headed home before rush hour traffic.

Here, the animals come right up to your vehicle and you can feed them! After driving through the park there is a petting zoo. The only animal we were scared of was the ostrich…no joke, those guys will peck at you and your car to get food. Finn was so brave and laughed the entire time. He fed the animals from his hand and peeked his head out of the sun roof most of the time. The Cotti's drove our pathfinder (pictured) while we drove in Ben's car. We caught some great pics...
Mission San Jose
This mission is so pretty. It is known as the "Queen of the Missions", since it is the largest of the missions.
