So sorry it has taken me so long to finish this post! We have been sick and out of town.
Day two in San Antonio, we went to the town of Gruene (pronounced Green) and what a quaint little town. Lots of cute shops and restaurants and one of the oldest performance halls around! We had alot of fun going from shop to shop and I especially enjoyed the coffee shop!
After getting my espresso, so good..We hopped over to this cute little cupcake shop. I loved it!! As you can see by the pictures. YUMMMMMM!!
|Say hello to pumpkin spice, red velvet and vanilla bean....|
Must say that the red velvet was probably my favorite. They added mini chocolate chips to it. YUMM-O! The vanilla was so fresh and just amazing...I cannot even describe how good of a vanilla it really was. Pure. The pumpkin spice, moist and delicious. Hard to pick just one, so I sampled them all! They were so cute.
Only open until they ran out of cupcakes. Love it.
Then we did some more shopping, to burn off those cupcakes, and I came across a rock that looked like the state of Texas!

So on our way out and about for the last, rainy, day in San Antonio, we ate at this restaurant near the airport that a local had recommended. Apparently there was a flood, I cannot remember when, but everything in that part of town was ruined but this one restaurant. You can defiantly tell while in there because it leans and I mean leans.We were really glad that we were referred this place because the food was wonderful! It was alittle hard to eat and look out the window, it really messed with you, but was a find! Even the drinking glasses leaned!
