NOT Back to School Day 2018

Monday was the first day of school for the local districts so, as usual, we had a fun final day off.

We started off with pineapple-kiwi-blueberry smoothie bowls for breakfast. The kids were less than impressed. I thought they were amazing.

Jamie and the boys played some Dungeons & Dragons before Cameron had to leave us for the Monday lunch meeting he goes to every week for work.

Jamie, the little guys, and I headed out to the Tower of the Americas.

We squished some pennies.

And tried to find our house using one of the pay viewer thingies up on the observation deck.

The view of San Antonio from the observation deck is pretty awesome. We live in a very beautiful city.

We watched three short 4D movies. It’s funny how getting sprayed with water from an ocean feels different from getting sprayed with water from a mammoth sneeze even though it’s really all the same water.

Adrian got a color change cup, Fritz got a long tube of pucker powder, and Jamie got a cattle brand from the gift shop.

We went to an Asian buffet for lunch. Adrian ate his favorite food (rice and cheese) and Fritz ate approximately his weight in rolls and sushi.

We went to a really amazing comic book store. Fritz spent lots of time studying the D&D books. Both boys got starter Pokemon card decks and Adrian got a Teen Titans Go! comic book set.

We finished off the day by going to Bubble Waffle Bar. Ani came with us (Cameron was at work). There’s not much there we can eat there, but what we ate was still really cool. The Dole Whip was pretty normal, but the cotton candy wrapped chocolate, coconut, and mint chocolate chip ice cream was unique and really good.
