Fun Weekend Comes to an End

Grace dancing at the Domain

Grace dancing at the Domain

This weekend has been a blast.  Not “fun” as in – crazy, wild, fun.  But “fun” as in – I love being with my family, “fun.”  “Fun” as in – I’m refreshed and ready to start a new week, “fun.”  Here’s what we did.

I had a baby shower to go to Saturday afternoon, so Matt took the girls to get an oil change and car wash.  Fun for Momma because I had some time with friends.  Fun for Daddy and the girls because they had time together.

After nap time, we were antsy to get out of the house.  Matt suggested going to the Domain to walk around.  (For those who don’t live in Austin, the Domain is an upscale, outdoor shopping area).  Matt had a little extra work clothing allowance burning a hole in his pocket, so we went to Macy’s first.  As we walked out of Macy’s and started checking out the other shops, we noticed that they had blocked off the main road running through the Domain.  A stage was set up and signage said there was a fashion show.  In the distance, we could hear live music which sparked our curiosity.  We walked to the opposite end of the Domain and asked a security guard what was going on.  Come to find out, the fashion show had an after party with a live band, free drinks and desserts!  One of our favorite things is to stumble upon something cool.  This fit that criteria.  It was so much fun!  Grace danced the night away.  Alyssa shook her booty in the stroller.  Matt and I enjoyed watching them.

Today we had another great day!  After church we drove to Marble Falls and ate at the Blue Bonnet Cafe.  AMAZING!  Good, comfort food.  They are known for their pies.  DELICIOUS!  We had the peanut butter pie and it was fabulous.  We practically licked the plate clean.  After we had stuffed ourselves silly, we went to Sweet Berry Farms and picked strawberries.  It was perfect weather to be outside and the farm was a great time.  Grace really got into finding good strawberries, picking them, and putting them in her basket.  By the end, she had strawberry juice all over her clothes and face.

I’m so far behind on posting pictures to our flickr sight that it completely overwhelms me.  I’m trying to upload a bit at a time.  HOPEFULLY by the end of the week I’ll be caught up.  At that point, I’ll post pictures from our fun weekend.  Sorry to do so many posts with no pictures!!
