      We spent the summer in San Antonio last summer – and will be

      volunteering there again this year for two months. We have two little

      girls and we did lots of things last year. We did splurge for season

      passes to Sea World. Maybe instead of doing two parks – you can get

      a two day pass to one park. It took us about three visits to Sea

      World before we took in all the shows and rides. My girls were worn

      out after about 5 hours and so was I.

      Also, there is the Witte Museum – which had a free or reduced day for

      children each week. THey have the “science treehouse” and we spent

      hours there. We also went to the McNay Art Museum and had a picnic

      lunch on the park like grounds. To tour the museum is by donation.

      We also visited the five missions… not just the Alamo. That is

      also free. We splurged on a river boat ride down the river walk area

      at night.

      We also walked around the Little Village and looked at the shops and

      artisians. The public swimming pools are free, also.

      I am open to more ideas for this year… would like to hear from

      others on things to do. Mary
