Weekend on Lake Travis

We spent last Wednesday - Sunday in Spicewood, Texas, on a mini vacation with Brandon's parents. It was wonderful, relaxing and nice to just get out of town for a few days. There is something about getting out of town that just clears your head, no?

Do y'all remember back in February of 2012, when I was pregnant with Clara, and Brandon surprised me with a getaway anniversary + babymoon weekend? Well, we went to the same lake house for this trip and once again, it did not disappoint! I was a little more mobile this time around (Remember last year I had cankles the size of Texas itself. You're welcome for not reposting reminder pics) but with the grandparents there, I was still able to relax quite a bit. We watched Clara swim, played ping pong and ladder ball, ate at several yummy restaurants and got cupcakes at the Austin famous "Hey Cupcake," and visited a local winery. Oh and found a gigantic lizard in the garage. I only heard about the lizard second hand, and was not the one to find it, so lucky for me and unlucky for you, I have no crazy dramatic traumatic lizard experiences to report.

Here are some pics to sum up our trip. . .

(We were so sad that Brandon's bro, wife and kids were not able to join us!)
