Things have been a little quiet here as we were enjoying a little family vacation to Austin. We had such a great time being able to relax a bit and spend time together as a family. I thought I would give a little snapshot of our little trip with a few instagram highlights from the trip.
We had such a great time on our little trip, we really tried to focus on just relaxing and having fun together instead of rushing around from activity to activity. That being said a lot of our time was spent watching Food Network in our hotel room.
We put a shout out on Facebook asking for some restaurant recommendations and we were blown away with how many places were recommended to us. We wish we would have had time to try all of the places recommend to us. Some of our favorites that we did try were: P Terry’s, Kerbey Lane Cafe (We went twice for breakfast!), Amy’s Ice cream, and Gourdoughs (yes that is a picture of a donut…we have never had anything like it!)
We spent some time in the hotel pool, but one of our favorite things was going to Barton Springs to swim. Barton Springs is a three acre pool fed by natural underground springs. It was chilly since the average temperature year round is 68 degrees! It took us a few minutes to get in, but we had such a great time with Stella. She loved it, and was much braver about the chilly water!
It was our first time in Austin and we hope to go back again soon!
