I am FINALLY getting this up, our last week has been insane and I have not had a moment to sit down at the computer!

Last weekend our little family took a mini vacay, hubby had some time off work he needed to use and I had a whopping 6 days off in a row.  Something that is rare these days.

To start with L came down with a virus the day before we were supposed to leave...of course.... but we went anyway.  He was able to sleep a lot and the dr told us he really wasn't contagious.  Poor guy at his worst had a fever of 105!! I thought I was going to freak out! It responded quickly to ibuprofen thank Jesus, my little guy did not feel good, although he seemed to maintain his good spirits like such a trooper.  He is all better now, Praise God!!

We started out by heading to San Antonio, my family lives there and so does my brother in law and their family.  My nephews second birthday was Saturday so while we were able to visit my parents we were able to attend his part as well.  My sister in law did such a great job and it was so much fun! Plus, it was fun to see L and his cousin play together. It just blows my mind how much they look alike!! My nephew is 8 months older than L, even though they are about the same size.

After a short stay in San Antonio we headed to Austin for a day or so.  We arrived sunday afternoon and we were so bummed because it was raining like crazy and all our "plans" were outside.  We really didn't have any plans just an idea of some things we would like to see or do.  Unfortunately they all consisted of being outside or walking outside so the rain was a total buzz-kill :(

We need up grabbing a bite to east at Wahoos Fish Taco.  It was so yummy, I had a bowl that had fish, rice and black beans.  There were some sort of veggies in there too and a really yummy sauce.  This was outstanding and really filled me up!  After that we just drove around the UT campus, went to  check out the sorority and fraternity houses (we always like to do this if were in cities that have our greek organization) and we were going to go to the Co-op but it literally closed 5 minutes before we got there.  By the suggestion of a twitter friend we also went to check out BookPeople a really cool bookstore that I could have gotten lost in for hours! L was really good and was napping this whole time.  We headed back to the hotel to dry off and rest before dinner.  We went to Hula Hut, one of my favorites.  It was kind of a bet because it was so late and L was tired and hungry but because he was so tired didn't really want to eat so he was so fussy and we ended up trading off with each other and walking L outside.  Oh well, you live and learn right!

On Monday we woke up and went to breakfast at Kerbey Lane This is one of our favorites from college when we would go to Sixth St as they are open 24 hours.  This was not the case, but the food was still so good! L started off breakfast really fussy again and we were so frustrated after the previous night and now this.  He is ALWAYS so good in restaurants, low and behold the kid was starving.  He probably ate 4 eggs, 1/4 of pancake and 1/2 bowl of fruit.  I guess thats what happens when you don't want to eat dinner.  He was back to his good spirits and we were off to start our day.  We started by going back to the Co-op, I wish I had more money to spend there they literally had so many cute things!! We needed up just getting L a pair of cute sweatpants this time.

By this time I had told a previous patients family that I would head over to their boutique to say hi so thats where we went.  I absolutely love being able to see patients and their families that I really connected to outside of the hospital.  It is hard because I usually only see my patients very sick in ICU and don't get to see the after product of my care.  This was so fun because the baby was like night and day!! He was so happy and full of life.  Its amazing what a good heart can do for you!! After that little stop off we decided to go park the car and roam around.  We headed to South Congress which was so cool, we wished we had waited to have lunch there because the little food trucks looked so fun!! We had pizza earlier so we really weren't hungry.

After our snack we headed back to the hotel so we could get ready for dinner, we were going to The Salt Lick.  We drove out and by the time we got there we were all hungry.  I was amazed at how fast the service was.  That was a blessing because by this point L wanted nothing to do with sitting and eating so we took turns going out and letting L walk around.  Poor guy was basically over the vacation by this point.  He usually is an angel in restaurants he'll sit and eat or play while we eat and not make much fuss...oh boy not this day! We ate fast and headed outside to the play area so he could blow off some steam! He was in HEAVEN!!

 Although when it was time to go a meltdown was had!! He DID. NOT. want to leave!!!

We headed home early the next day and I don't think I have seen a little guy happier to be home than L was! It was a fun little trip and a much needed break from daily life!

He might be the cutest little crier ever! So glad y'all had some time away. That's always nice. And I agree--L is getting so big!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
