Austin Trip.

Several weeks back we headed to Austin for a quick trip.  We got to town in time to watch the UT game at Ruby's parents' house with a bunch of friends.  (Thanks for hosting, David and Emilia.)  It was one of the few games we've actually won this season!

We love any excuse to go to Austin, but this time my best friend, Lauren, and her husband, Jacob, were in town!  It is always great to see them.  I can't wait for the day that they move back to Texas!

Later that evening, we went out for cocktails and dinner at East Side Show Room.     

The next day, we met up with some friends including Jeremy, Meagan, and Sawyer and Zach, Carrie, and Porter for brunch.  It was great to visit with them and see their cute kiddos.  After eating brunch and grabbing shaved ice at Sno-Beach, a group of us headed to Town Lake for a little kayaking.

I wanted to bring my camera along so badly, but Justin said it wasn't the best idea in case it got wet.  I am so glad I listened to him.  After being out on the water a couple of hours, we were getting tired and decided to head back.  Everything was going along just fine until, before I knew it, our kayak was upside down and we were in the water!  We still don't know what happened.    

Our friends, Kevin and Chris, came over to see what happened and to help us get situated back in our kayak.  Our two kayaks were right next to each other at that point, and I have no idea what the heck happened, but the 4 of us ended up in the water again!  The first time I was shocked, but the second time, I just had to laugh.  Thankfully my flip flops and Justin's shoes floated.  Sadly, Chris's free chipotle shirt and Kevin's converse and treasured Astros cap did not.  They are now at the bottom of Town Lake.

After getting cleaned up (and buying Kevin another pair of shoes), we enjoyed a hamburger at Hut's before heading back to Houston.  We had a wonderful trip and had a great time seeing everyone (and getting the full experience on Town Lake)!       


  1. Fun, Family & Food...

    There is no better way to spend a vacation

  2. Sounds like a 'funtastic' trip! I love kayaking within cities. We went on the Potomac while in DC once and it was so much fun!

    Y'all should take up scuba diving and find your lost goods! : )

  3. We had a great time too! The countdown is on for us to move back. We miss yall!

    Now we just need to convince you to move to Austin...

  4. We are headed to Dallas in a few weeks, wish I had time to swing down to Austin too! Lucky you! Glad you had fun! Getaways are always good.! =)

  5. i still cry a little when i think about that day.

  6. You are so cute!! I'm a Horned Frog, but many of my friends are Longhorns. I was just in Houston for work and was able to meet Megan from Honey We're Home...too bad we couldn't get all 3 of us together! (I'm Dallas area)

  7. BlueHost is ultimately one of the best web-hosting company for any hosting plans you might need.
