First Family Vacation | New York

First Family Vacation | New York


Hey guys! So today's post has been a long time coming. Like 9 months coming. About the time it takes to gestate a baby coming. Although I have a baby gestating as we speak, that's not what today's post is about. It's about our trip to New York... last Fall. 



In my defense, a lot has happened since we got back from our family vacation to New York. First there was the holidays then I started babysitting on top of planning my cousin's daughter's first birthday party, then I planned Sophia's first birthday party and that's about the time pregnancy took over my body and I haven't had much energy since, haha. I debated waiting to do our trip recap as one year anniversary reminisce type thing but I will be almost in labor at that point and will probably still never get around to it which is why it brings us to today.

Anniversary Weekend Getaway | Austin

Anniversary Weekend Getaway | Austin


Anthony and I were planning to take a babymoon before Little Love arrives but the only weekend that was available for us to do so would be next weekend however we asked our doctor for permission and she suggested we stay in the Katy and surrounding area because of how far along we already are in the pregnancy so this leaves me reminiscing about our anniversary weekend getaway to Austin last April and figured I'd share some of the details and pictures of things we did while we were there.


We decided to go to Austin because of the Hamilton Pool Reserve that is actually located in Dripping Springs, approximately 40 minutes outside of Austin. I was looking on Pinterest years ago of places to see and when I saw how close this was and doable (budget wise), we started planning our trip immediately.

Since Austin is only a little over 2 hours away, we decided to drive and who wouldn't with gorgeous field views like these



We stayed at the Best Western Plus as Anthony gets a discount with his job and we were overall pleased with our stay. The attached bar didn't hurt as we took a night to get a few drinks and people watch.


Our first night in Austin was our actual anniversary date so we splurged for dinner and ate at Wink and we indulged in the 5 course Chef's tasting menu. It was delicious but I have to admit, I was still hungry afterward, each course was only a bite size.


Our hotel offered free breakfast so after enjoying that the next morning, we started our adventure to Hamilton Pool Reserve.


 
  




It was absolutely breathtaking, I shed a few tears taking in all of God's wonderful creation. Afterwards, we headed back to Austin and enjoyed lunch at Hut's Hamburgers. AMAZING. That's all I have to say.


While enjoying the pool, we were referred to check out the Congress Avenue Bridge to see the largest North American Bat Colony. It was within walking distance, so we enjoyed a nice stroll to the bridge to see what all the fuss was about. And it was worth it, get there a little early if you want a nice sitting and seeing area.



On our last day in Austin, we did what I think anyone should do when visiting Austin; we visited the State Capitol.



We also took a day trip to San Antonio on the way home after visiting the Capitol, although it was a bit out of the way but I'll save that for another post! It was just so nice to have that time together during our anniversary weekend without any worries and only focusing on each other, I hope it's a habit we keep especially now that our alone time will be limited once we welcome our baby girl, it sure is to make each moment alone more special and meaningful.

How do you mamas and daddies find time for each other with children? Do you have weekend getaways or only date nights?
