Wordless{ish} Wednesday: The Tower of the Americas

{Located just a short walk away from our hotel was the Hemisfair Park, a lushly landscaped city park that was built to host the 1968 World's Fair.  There are a number of gorgeous historic structures within the park that are in the process of being slowly rehabbed, as well as an awesome playground where Sammy ran himself ragged, but the biggest (or tallest) highlight of the park was the 750-foot tall Tower of the Americas.}

{After a quick ride up in a glass-fronted elevator, the three of us were greeted by beautiful panoramic views of San Antonio and the surrounding areas.}

{I had a lot of fun finding the places we'd already walked to, like the Torch of Friendship sculpture, which was a pretty easy landmark to pick out thanks to its vibrant red color.}

{Sammy spent most of his time running around the observation deck, "chasing" after the airplanes and helicopters that flew by the tower.  Needless to say, he napped very well that afternoon.}
