Gobble, Gobble, Gobble…. December 2, 2008

Well, we just got back from San Antonio and we had a great time.  It was a really short trip (arrived Wed and left early Saturday), but we had a chance for William to visit with our Texas family.

Right from the get go we had a lot to do.  For starters, we hit Freebirds on the way back from the airport and it was soooooo yummy.  For those not sure what Freebirds is, it’s the Worlds Best Burritos and I got hooked on them while I was at Texas A&M.  After that, Wendy and the kids came by Nana and Papa’s house and William got a chance to meet the rest of his cousins (Emily, Carly, Bronson, Tobin and Mitch).  William also got to meet Granny (Great Grandma). 

On Thanksgiving we all met at Nana and Papa’s to have a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner.  Herb got smoked Turkeys from Rudy’s, and as always they delivered on their promise.  Quite possibly the best BBQ in San Antonio.  Wendy brought over a bunch of side dishes and pies; Pumpkin Pie under a ton of whip cream being my absolute favorite.  William also started a new food and got to try Turkey for the first time.  The jury is out if he liked it or not, but it was his first meat and will get a lot more of it over the next few weeks.

On Friday, Wendy and Wally hosted a little party for the Rippa and Brylak sides to come together and meet William.  We had a lot of fun hanging out at their new home and watching football and relaxing.  We also celebrated Granny’s 87th birthday with a big cake and all the family present. 

After such a great few days with family we had to leave early on Saturday.  Just like on the flight out, William was the experienced traveler.  He was complimented by the flight crews and passengers around us from being sooooo good.  He is so easy to travel with.


Now the pictures.
