About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Tuesday's Tour - Part 3

We were dropped off at Rivercenter, ignoring the mall and finding the Riverwalk!
My first glimpse of the Riverwalk!
 


 Oh how I wished we would have had at least half the day to explore and eat under one of the umbrellas, but we were on a time crunch.  We had to find where we were to meet for dinner.  By that time, I was very fatigued, so we stopped in a bar and hubby had a beer and I had water (again).
We met with the other Diamond Tour group that was carrying passengers from Alabama and Dallas.
They put us all in a large dining room.  We had three choices of what we could eat:  Spaghetti and Meatballs (Jim's choice), Chicken Parmesan, and Chicken Alfredo (my choice).  The couple across from us shared a large Margarita, and I had an Italian Soda (which I would later regret).  Warm bread for dipping, and cheesecake for desert!
 

 
Looks yummy, was yummy, but too acidic for me.  We then met to go on the barge down the river.  I got a few shots but mostly enjoyed just looking!
 

 

City Hall in the back ground.

The Riverwalk was really a highlight.  It was quite cool out that night, and hubby picked the wrong day to wear shorts!  They jammed us into the barge like herring in a can.  Still, we enjoyed it

Time to depart for the hotel!
