I've been trying for days to upload lots of pictures to blogger. And it's just not happening. Sometimes one will load. Sometimes two... and then it crashes. Grumble. I've got lots of wonderful pictures from our Spring Break trip to San Antonio. I know the grandparents would really like to see them. I guess I'll keep trying.

In the mean time, I did get these to upload.

Here is Benjamin at the Mirror Maze. The Mirror Maze is one of many many many tourist traps across the street from the Alamo. (We DID NOT visit the wax museum or the Ripley's Believe It or Not museum.) But, the Mirror Maze seemed like an interesting diversion on a hot afternoon.

It was just a big room with carefully placed walls of mirrors. Can you see that Claire and Benjamin are wearing plastic gloves? That's so the mirrors don't get all finger-printy when you run into them because you think it's a clear passage way, but actually it's just a reflection of a clear passage way.

The experience brought about tons of giggles and lots of camaraderie with the other giggling tourists trying to find their way to the "end" of the maze.

Of course, we did also see the Alamo. I really enjoyed it. We sat in the courtyard and listened to one of the guides give an excellent re-telling of the battle of the Alamo. Benjamin wasn't really interested. So he napped in my lap. All that fun in the mirror maze was exhausting.

I'm familiar with the whole running out of steam before the trip is over thing. :-)
