Surprise Austin Trip! (take 2)

That's right we took the Wood 4-pack to Barton Creek Resort for a few days of fun in the sun! I am incredibly thankful that Mark is SO spontaneous. We were thinking about taking a little family trip in August, but on Saturday, Mark suggested that we just go right now, and that's exactly what we did. I am much more of a planner so sometimes that's just what I need. Our conversation was at 11:00 and by 12:45 we were on the road! So nice...except I forgot my CAMERA:(. I love my iPhone but the pictures are not so hot. I apologize in advance but the phone pics were better than nothin'.

On the way to Austin we stopped at Golfsmith looking for some Jr. Clubs for Ryan. My kids thought this place was awesome! I think Daddy did too:-). We played a lot but did not find the right clubs.

"Hey Ryan Smile for me." So of course he held his breath. Ladies and gentlemen, this 5 1/2 year old keeps me on my toes. It's a good thing he's so cute.

We're here! Ahhh, I just LOVE this place. This was our second trip here and hopefully we'll be back again next summer. The resort has amazing rooms, putt-putt, an incredible workout facility, indoor basketball, golf, family movie nights, smores, food and swimming. What more do you need?? I highly recommend it.

The sleeping arrangements (thank you Grandma for this perfect Princess sleeping bag!)

Fun at the pool

They have rocking chairs everywhere so we rocked out a lot!

On Sunday night we were VERY bold in our decision to take the kids to Eddie V's seafood and steakhouse. The food was incredible but you know you're in for a long night when there's no kid menu! Oh the memories!

A little glimpse of our night! This restaurant was one of the best we've ever been to and for the most part the kids did great. It was nice to end our weekend with a little adventure.

We really did have a wonderful time. We'll see ya next year Barton Creek.

What fun! Most the time it is the trips that are not planned that end up being the best. The best planned ones usually end up not going quite like you expected!

This is awesome! I'm impressed with the spontaneous trip! What a great place for young kids. I've got to get the hotel shacking under control with by boys so we can do that easily.

I love trips like this! I too am such a planner so thank goodness for hubbies who like to spice it up. ha! These are PRECIOUS pictures. This place looks wonderful. You can tell the kiddos were having a ball by their faces (yes, even the holding the breath one. ha!) Oh, your dress is beautiful on you. Hot mommy look out!
