When Myles was about 4 weeks old, we decided to take a trip to Texas – I felt like I had pretty much recovered from having a kid, so that was a plus! First, we stopped just north of Dallas to visit Shawn’s parents. I always have so much fun visiting them, and this time was no different. My favorite time spent with Tom and Karen is when the kids are in bed and we play cards for hours – SO fun!Next, we drove south to Austin, which is somewhere I’ve never been and always wanted to go! We rented a flat in the middle of downtown, so we got to walk everywhere anytime we wanted to venture out – which wasn’t as often as you might think since there was an outdoor pool area! In fact, the best afternoon during the entire week was when Shawn and I sun bathed while the girls played in the pool.Myles might not remember, but he had a good time napping underneath the palm trees. SO relaxing.We walked everywhere and got to do some fantastic sight-seeing. Marlowe and Fletcher had a blast looking at this awesome bike statue-thing (below), so I had to snap a few pictures. Naturally.Although I will admit that walking all day was pretty hard on the girls, they acted like troupers and were very well-behaved while Shawn and I had our nightly drinks. Snacks definitely helped, haha! Honestly, this was one of the most exciting and fun trips we’ve taken as a family. We will definitely go back to Austin!
