We ventured to Austin for a weekend getaway in July
Our last trip before the baby
As you will see we ate a lot of delicious food
It was such a blast
Our first night in Austin we explore South Congress street
Lots of fun shopping!
Then we joined the throngs of people gathered to watch the bats
Billions of bats fly out of this bridge every day at sunset
It was difficult to capture the crazy amounts of bats in a picture
but you can see some of them here
Beautiful Austin sunset captured by Photographer Phil
We got a donut for dessert from this trailer
We highly recommend it!
behold the peach cream cheese donut!
The next day we got breakfast tacos at the Austin Farmers Market
Then we got lunch at La Barbeque
We waited in line for about an hour to get the food
It was 105 degrees and I wasn't feeling so great
But the food was certainly worth the wait!
We spent the afternoon at the Barton Springs Pool
Unfortunately we have no pictures of this event
It was so nice a relaxing
Definitely one of my favorite things we did this summer
We met up with our friends Cam and Crystal for a fun evening of dinner and catching up
This man entertained us during dinner
The next day we ate some more food!
Here I am with our tamales at another farmers market
Our drive home from Austin was painfully long
It took about 6 hours, when it should have only been 3
This was made bearable by our detour at Czech Stop, a very popular (hence the line in the above picture) bakery in West, TX.
Here are our Kolaches
Especially the apricot and cream cheese one
That was our fun weekend in Austin!
