The boys ordered Big Red, or Red Flash at every restaurant that we went to. Us Utahans know this beverage better as Red Cream Soda, apparently it is super popular in Texas, you can order it anywhere!
Thomas really loved his ice cream!
After our fun and delicious dinner we caught a river taxi and took a relaxing ride down the river and enjoyed perfectly warm Texan weather. It was really fun to see the river walk from a boat we made note of all the places we wanted to go back and visit over the course of the next week.
Cowboy hats and toy guns, every little boys dream
We walked back to our hotel via the river walk. It is such a festive place at night! Everything is all light up in lights of all different colors, people are everywhere, there are mariachi band serenading couples at restaurant tables, river taxis and boat tours are filled with excited visitors, it's just a great place to be!
The Tower Life Building was lit up all green for St. Patrick's Day!
So here are a few pictures of the Steal of The Day. I saw this adorable vintage toy at the gift shop by the IMAX theater and could not pass it by. It was marked at $30 dollars, which I thought was a little steep, but I love to collect vintage toys and this one was just so unique. I thought about it for like 20 minutes then decided to just go for it anyway. When I brought it up to the register the boy ringing me up thought that $30 dollars was too much as well, I didn't say a word to him about the price, and so he decided to give it to me for the fabulous price of $6 dollars!!!!!! Woo! I just love it so much, it works great and is just like a little ray of sunshine!
I am going to post each day of this fun filled trip as separte posts. We were there for 6 days, so there will be 5 more posts coming your way!
