We took a trip to Austin, TX while Grandma and Oma were here to stay with the boys. I'm not gonna lie, I had major anxiety leaving them. It was the first time we have ever left them with someone besides when we went to Napa overnight. They of course did great and had so much fun with their Grandma's. After we flew into to TX and started having some fun, I wasn't so worried anymore lol! I have always wanted to check out Austin because of their huge live music scene. I am a huge music lover and was excited to see all of the live bands that play there and the hippie vibe Austin has. We were also there during SXSW. We didn't get tickets because we wanted to see what it was all about. Even without tickets it was so fun! We saw live bands all over sixth street, parties and movie premieres going on everywhere. Now that we got a glimpse of it, we want to go back next year for SXSW. We had a blast. And of course we ate some AMAZING food! The Texas bbq was fab, and all the other places we researched to eat at lived up to their hype. We also went cave exploring, ziplining, kayaking and visited old friends-which was another reason we decided on Austin. I planned a ton for us to do so we didn't waste anytime, and it was the best time. Thankfully Avery is like me and when we go any place new, we just like to get out and explore everything! We really enjoyed our much needed time together and came home refreshed and excited to see our boys!
Hiked Mt. Bonnel for some great views
Cave exploring! So beautiful and amazing!!
Kayaked out to see the famous Congress Ave bats
Our view on the kayak back of the city. This was one of our favorite things we did
