Lucky for us, we're close enough to spend a day in San Antonio and be back home in less than two hours. We can visit just about anytime we please, but if you're planning to make a stay of it, all the better. San Antonio is a wonderful city to visit and you'll be glad to have the extra time to really check things out.
For our day trip, I was on a mission to get to the market (a.k.a. El Mercado or Market Square). The market is downtown and has leveled parking for a fee that makes it very convenient to get to.
While many people come to visit the famed River Walk, Market Square is where the fun is really at. The colors, the smells, and music are so festive. It's hard not to feel happy in a place like this and who doesn't want to feel happy? Here are some pictures of our visit around the market.

Did you know the yellow rose is not the state flower of Texas? Blue Bonnets are the official state flower, but the yellow rose has gained fame through songs, the original, of course, being, "The Yellow Rose of Texas." You can read more about that here if you're interested.
