San Antonio Arrival

This blog post is for all of you who are already wondering what we are doing, where we are going and what we're eating! This may be too much information for some - but it's how we roll on Live from the Creek. We want you to feel like you're really with us. :)

This morning started very early with us heading out the door around 4am! We checked in at Jacksonville International Airport and as our departure time passed we realized something must be wrong. Our plane had mechanical troubles, so they decided to switch. Well, if we weren't awake before.... yikes! We left over an hour later (you'll note in the photos how Susan spent her time waiting :) ) and proceeded to have one of the roughest plane rides I have EVER had. Thank goodness for Dramamine.

We arrived in San Antonio around noon Texas time and checked in to our hotel. On our way to the convention center we explored a little of the Riverwalk in San Antonio. What a gorgeous walkway by the river! We checked in at the convention center to get ready for all of our NECC learning and then prepared for the keynote. I personally can't wait to get started with our first full day tomorrow.

Hi Ladies,
Sorry that your trip to San Antonio was so eventful. Isn't it nice to be with your closest friends when that happens? The hotel is beautiful and I am sure that you could sit on the riverwalk for hours watching people. Can't wait to hear about your first day. Love ya!

The ESE Team went to a CEC Conference several years ago, so all your pictures are bringing back memories! I think that's the Year we slept 6 to a room to save money! I also remember that we had some great Mexican food - maybe Debbie, Liz, Tammi, Randi or Lauren will remember the name of the restaurant. We had a wonderful time - even trying to get 6 women ready at the same time! Have a great adventure! dayle
