After touring The Alamo we went for a walk on The Riverwalk. How I love The Riverwalk. It is so beautiful and romantic, even with five kids in tow! Ha ha! I read that it wasn’t recommended to take a stroller so I left mine in the van. In retrospect I would have taken the umbrella stroller that easily folds up to go up and downstairs, but would have been easier than carrying our almost two year old around the entire time. Jason was with me though so carrying him wasn’t that big of a deal. After walking around a little while the kids kept asking about the boats and if they were going to get on one. Why, yes!
I was thrilled to be able to take them on a Riverboat Cruise! I got to go on a cruise with my parents when I was in my twenties and I absolutely loved it. Great memories! In all the research I did for what to do with kids on the Riverwalk I didn’t come up with a whole lot. If you are taking kids I recommend planning on the cruise. My kids loved it!
The building in the back ground was my favorite. It looks like a ship at sea about to join us on the river. I enjoyed just gazing at the beautiful buildings and scenery. I’m kinda thinking a weekend on the Riverwalk with only my husband sounds like a lot of fun! The cruise was about an hour long. It cost about $45 for our family. I don’t remember what the price breakdown was. We were sorry when it came to an end.
We had thought we’d eat supper on The Riverwalk, but being that it was now evening on a Saturday night everything was super crowded. We didn’t want to have to wait around. So we headed to our hotel and found a Chick-fil-A. While we were there a lady came over to my husband, handed him a $20 bill and said, “God told us to give you this.” She went on to thank us for having a large family. How that act of kindness blessed our hearts!
