family vacation

we decided that we needed to take a quick family vacation before the craziness of summer begins. all five of us loaded up in the murano and left around 7pm. the trip went well and we arrived to our cabin at Crier Creek around 11:30. the kids were super excited to stay in a cabin. allie's exact words were, "mommy, this is so awesome!" there are no pictures of our adventures at the camp??? having too much fun, i guess!

we spent one full day in austin. zilker park was our first stop. they have LOTS of amazing things to enjoy, but we decided the train and the playground was all the fun we had time for. if you are ever in the area... you should spend the day... it is beautiful!

for lunch we headed to the famous salt lick! it was DELICIOUS!!! here is a pic of where all the magic happens! yummy!
it wouldn't be vacation without a little dessert! on recommendation from several friends, we took the kids to the cookie lounge. the kiddos LOVED picking the dough and the mixings! they kept a close eye on their cookies the entire time!
there is no way that we could be 1/2 an hour from my parents and not stop in. pawpaw took the kids to a neighbors house for fishing. unfortunately they weren't biting, but they got a special treat when they got to ride a horse too! that was the first time for that and they LOVED it!

we ended our time at mimi and pawpaw's with a little egg hunt! here is a pic of them checkin' out the loot!
