Haunted houses and Mexican food

Yesterday, Luke and I, along with five of our friends, went to San Antonio for the day. We left camp at about 10:30 a.m., Jake with us in my car. Of course, we had to stop at the infamous "green store" to grab snacks and energy drinks for the road. Jacob and Rachel followed us to San Antonio in Jacob's jeep and Sarah and Andrew met us in San Antonio.

Once we arrived, we decided on Dick's for lunch, which is down on the Riverwalk. Lunch was obviously sarcastic and loud, but super fun! After lunch, the seven of us walked around the River Center Mall for about thirty minutes. Then we split up into two groups: Andrew, Sarah, Jacob, and Rachel headed over to the Alamodome to see the Cowboys practice; Jake, Luke and myself headed over to La Cantera to look for a necklace for Jake's girl, Erika. We met back downtown around 5 p.m.

At this point, Jacob and Rachel took off to Austin to meet up with Jacob's grandmother for dinner. The rest of us checked out the Guinness World Record Museum, the Tomb Rider 3D ride, and the Ripley's Believe It or Not Haunted House. The haunted house was crazy! We had to keep our right hand on the right shoulder of the person in front of us and I'm pretty sure Jake will have permanent fingernail marks from me on his shoulder:) Luke and I made wax hands at the museum by holding hands and dipping them in hot wax. It felt really weird, but I was pretty impressed with the finished product. After our touristy fun, we had dinner at Casa Rio on the Riverwalk. Dinner was sooo good; I love Mexican food!

This trip was much needed and super special since it was our last time to all hang out together for the summer. We took tons of pictures, laughed a lot, and made precious memories that I'll look back on when this semester gets rough.

To my incredible friends and bf: I love you all very much. Thanks for a great time!
