Sometimes, like with these pages, I'm not totally sure I like what I did, embellishment-wise. I'm just not happy with the finished page. I like that I used that 'remember' journal spot so fitting for remembering the Alamo and I like the journal card at the far right. I like the photo placement, the photos and nothing else. I might have to re-think my page well before I send it to print.
Still...It was Jeff's first visit to the Alamo and we enjoyed the leisurely walk through history with Ashley, Brad, and the boys. Jeff looks at history intently, and intentionally, reading each piece, measuring it, and weighing it. His retention is amazing and I'm seriously envious (because my comprehension stinks...maybe I need to work on that with some seriousness, hum)
While we visited the Alamo a gentleman, in period costume, was sharing about the medicine and medicinal equipment available to the soldiers of the Alamo. Wyatt standing directly in front of man, listened intently, ignoring everything around him except the man's talk, to what was said, and didn't move during the half hour or so talk. Ian, on the other hand moved constantly. Because I had to sit down I spent that time with Ian. The day was so easy going - and fabulous. We took a Riverwalk cruise that was just delightful, and the boat captain hilarious. We ate lunch at Chili's (of all places) in the Riverwalk mall. We just weren't in the mood for trying out the local food fare. It was a fun, tiring, and painful day (for me) as my pain level shot up toward the end of our visit to the Alamo.
