This week was our annual AFSA Sprinkler show with Rick's job. It was not one of the most exciting ones that we have had the privilege to attend, but we did make the best of a local venue. It was in San Antonio. I had not been there in 10 years, so I wanted to experience all the "touristy" things one more time.
The stupid thing we did was run down 18 flights of stairs. Our hotel room was on the eighteenth floor. The first day Rick said that we could just run down the stairs rather than walk around to the elevator. Our room was the very last room on the the floor with a stairwell next to our room. So it sounded like a quick way to get down. However, no one would have guessed that going down stairs uses muscles that are not normally used. We all had sore legs for the remainder of the trip.

On the way home, it was the boys' day. Rick's brother had made the comment on the way down that he had always wanted to stop at the Snake Farm. So Saturday - we did. I have to say that it was much more than any of us expected. It did have around 80 snakes, but many other animals. It has birds, monkeys, zebra, longhorn cows, foxes, deer, pigs, llamas, alligators, and many other strange animals.
