A San Antonio Weekend

Greetings from a hotel in Arkansas!

A few weekends ago, we had some shows in the San Antonio area.  Friday in Uvalde then Saturday and Sunday in San Antonio.  It was a quick trip, but we managed to eat some Mexican food because of course we did.

The first show was in Uvalde at a historic opera house that apparently is haunted.  That's what the people told us, anyway.  It was a cool building and oh how I love old stuff!  Plus, backstage had some seriously sweet props.  If you follow Trent on instagram or Facebook, you saw this.  I like to have fun.
(There was a fabulous Loretta Lynn-ish blue dress that I so wanted to put on and do my best Coal Miner's daughter/Sissy Spacek impersonation.  We didn't have time, though.  Boo.)  

My parents got to come which means my mom took pics.  And I need to work on my faces when I sing because this?  Looks painful.  And slightly constipated. 

We stayed at Neals Lodges and we LOVED it and can't wait to go back.  We wish we had longer to hang out there.  My parents stayed with us and they loved it, too.  We, of course, started planning the next family trip with my sisters and their families.  But, upon explaining the camp to them, I don't think they're as excited as we are.  To quote Carrie, "If it's not a 4-star hotel with a spa, I'm not going."  Ha!  I'm hopeful we can persuade them. 

*And this is where I slacked and took no pictures.  Fail.*

We left and headed to San Antonio with enough time to stop on the River Walk for about an hour for that Mexican food I mentioned. (Amen.)  Then, off to the hotel for a shower and then straight to the church.  

The show was at King of Kings and we had a great time!  Trent's been ending his show with "How Great Thou Art" and there were some kids that sang it in like 5 part harmony or something equally as crazy.  It was beautiful.

The next morning, we sang at TriPoint.  We had been before back in September, so it was great to see familiar faces and hug their necks.  They have an acoustic stage in the entry of the church and we set up there to play music for when people were filing in.  What a cool idea!  Then we played special music during the service.  Trent's newest single "Rise" continues to get an amazing response whenever we play it.  Talk about encouragement!  

"Rise" hits iTunes June 25th and radio on June 28th.

So go ahead and mark your calendars!
