Izzybelle’s Travels – Part 1

Izzybelle has been very busy, traveling all around  downtown San Antonio, seeing the sights, shopping for herself and her sisters and going out to eat!

Our first stop, after leaving the airport, was at the San Antonio Visitor's Center.  While I was looking through all the brochures, Izzybelle spotted this bag and thought that she needed to switch to a new carrier!!!  She was just sure it was perfect for her :)

After the Visitors Center, it was on to lunch at a Mexican restaurant on the Riverwalk.

Once she had had her nap, Izzybelle was ready to go out on the town and virtually skipped along on our walk to dinner.  Once we arrived she was on her best behavior while we ate.

Here is Izzybelle, along with her very full shopping bags, when we took a break for lunch after shopping for several hours at the Rowbear's Doll Show .  We couldn't take photos inside the show, but let me assure you that Izzybelle had a lot of fun shopping and trying on clothes!!!

After lunch it was more shopping!  This time at a shopping mall, where the river flows right into the center of the mall!

Mexican food for the third time in two days :)  This was a truly amazing plate of roasted potato enchiladas w/ garlic and chipotles, wrapped in red corn tortillas and topped with salad.

  1. Hi Paula,
    It looks like you are having a wonderful time in San Antonio, and I wish that I was there for all of it! The Mexican food, the shopping, the Alamo, what a great day! And Izzybelle is so cute I can hardly stand it! And I laughed out loud at the “look ma, no hands” picture! I’m sure that they are anxiously awaiting their presentation at the convention! I know that everyone will love them! I love the great bag that you made, as well. As with everything that you do, perfection down to the last detail! Enjoy the rest of your stay, and thank you so much for sharing pictures along the way! It is fun to live vicariously through Izzybelle’s adventures! Susie

    P.S. Hi to Charlotte and Mary – it is fun to see your posts here, as it brings back such fond memories of the retreat.

  2. Susie,
    We are having a really good time! Very relaxed so far 🙂 with lots of down time for sewing. You would adore the B&B we are staying at. I’ll try to take some photos of it today. It’s the nicest one we have ever stayed at.
    We are getting ready to go see four more missions and a cavern with waterfall. Brian has found a barbeque place in between for lunch. His food theme for the trip is alternating Mexican food and Barbeque 🙂

    I have to admit I feel the same way about posts from you, Charlotte and Mary!!!

    Love,
    Paula

  3. oo those dollies are beautiful and thanks for sharing the journey and fun, I cant wait for the next installment ! xxx

  4. Hi, Paula
    Thank you for sharing Izzybelle’s adventures in San Antonio! The food looks scrumptious, and the river walk amazing. I haven’t been there in 30 over years! The dolly undie things look lovely. Very nice purchases. And you were keeping busy too with sewing on dolly arms. Very commendable and inspiring to us doll makers. Sorry you weren’t able to take photos inside the doll center as that would have been a good photographic journal for you too.
    Just all so very lovely!
    lots of love, and joy!
    Teresa

  5. Teresa,
    Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂 I would have loved to share the Rowbear show. There were some lovely dolls there. We missed opening day, but I heard it was awe inspiring 🙂

    Paula
