Our Texas Vacation

I realize we live in Texas, but as big as this place is, it's easy to vacation here. We spent a little time in Austin and San Antonio last week, and it was a lot of fun! More than anything it was relaxing, which is exactly what I was looking for.

We started out in Austin, where we stayed for two nights. There is so much to do in that town, but a lot of it is outdoorsy and athletic, and well....we weren't feelin it. We did have a lot of great food. To be honest that's really what I look forward to the most on vacation. Or on a Tuesday. Food is pretty much my favorite thing no matter where I am.

We also went to the state capitol, which was pretty cool. I'm a huge nerd, so I love anything history related, and will go to any historical site or museum that's around. Arsen actually enjoyed it too, which surprised me.

After a couple of days there in Austin, we headed down to San Antonio. We actually really loved it there. We stayed at a super nice hotel down on the Riverwalk, and it was so pretty. The river is lined with restaurants and shops, and that's where we spent pretty much all of our time. The only time we really branched out was when we went to the Alamo. I've been before, years ago when I was maybe 12 years old, and it was Arsen's first time. Like I said, I love all that history stuff, so it was fun for me to hear all about that. We also did a boat tour of the river, and that was a lot of fun. Also, it was nice to just sit there for awhile. We walked so much on this vacation! Our poor feet were killing us halfway through the day every day.

Overall it was a nice little trip. We didn't want to do anything extravagant, and it was actually good that we stayed somewhat close to home, because Arsen ended up needing to be back Thursday evening for a work function, and they had him come in to work on Friday. I wasn't too happy about that, but I realize it just means he's a pretty important part of things there, and his opportunities to grow in this company are pretty great, so like my mom said....it's the price you pay. When he's some big shot exec I'm sure stuff like this will happen all of the time ;)

If you've never been to Austin/San Antonio, I definitely recommend it! There is so much more to do that we didn't even have time to do, and San Antonio is super family friendly. Good ole Texas....it's growing on me.


  1. I love San Antonio! The Riverwalk is such a great area. Sounds like you had a relaxing trip :)

  2. I love your pictures! You are gorgeous! When the college football coaches conference goes to San Antonio I'm so tagging along. I've always wanted to go to the river walk. I'm glad you guys had a great trip :)

  3. That looks like such a fun trip! I remember going to both of those cities through out my life and it was always a blast. Looks like y'all hit all the hot spots in one go round!

  4. Love the pictures! :) You guys are super cute!


  5. Looks like a great time! I always think of San Antonio as the "go to" city in Texas for a relaxing/easy vacation. Austin definitely has lots of outdoorsy things to do. Next time if y'all feel up to it, let me know!

  6. Those relaxing trips are some of the BEST ones. And girl we are the same on the food thing, Food is literally what I look forward to most on our vacations! Happy you and Arsen got some quality time together!
