We traveled from Round Rock TX to San Antonio TX to visit the Alamo. We stopped and ate at IHOP and we all had to sing p a n c a k e s (as per Brain Regan). The Alamo is right smack in the city, you might miss it with all the tall buildings around it. We had Charo with us and she was not allowed to be on The Alamo grounds, and we couldn't leave her in the car because it was hotter than Hades. Scott and I had to take turns going in to The Alamo with the kids.
One thing that was neat is that it is a sacred place and you must be reverent and respectful inside.
We came home and watched PeeWee Herman's Big Adventure and the kids could barely stand to watch it. It seemed so much more funny when I was a kid. Alas, there is no basement in the Alamo hiding PeeWee's beautiful bike.
