3 goals for Jilly’s visit: eat good food, stay busy and relax
Jill arrive on Thursday evening!!! We took her to Stubbs for dinner. We had some bbq! Then we dropped Seth off at school and headed to The Domain to meet up with our aunt Kendra and cousin Lauren, who is stationed at Fort Hood in Killeen, TX. Kendra is in town this week because Lauren is about to have her baby!! We can’t wait for Aiden Mike Thompson to arrive!!
We enjoyed some coffee while sitting in rocking chairs outside…what a perfect night!!
Friday we did some shopping in Austin. We went to Monkey See Monkey Do, Parts & Labour, and New Bohemia. Then we headed to the Hula Hut for dinner and drinks! It was great sitting above the lake enjoying the company!!
Saturday we relaxed around the house. Then i had to go to work for a few hours. Jill took Max to the river! Max did some swimming and had fun with the other dogs.
Yes, Max has a life vest!
After I got home from work, we went to TX Red’s Steakhouse for dinner with Aunt Pat & Uncle Steve. This is probably the best steakhouse in San Marcos! Good food, great conversation with amazing people!
Sunday morning we went to Lake Austin (aka Lady Bird Lake) to do some canoeing! I was skeptical at first. But i must admit, i had a blast!
It was such a beautiful day! It was cool and overcast!
View of Downtown Austin….
Jilly taking a break! lol
Finally, a picture of all 3 of us on the lake!
After canoeing, we went to Chuy’s for lunch. Chuy’s is yummy tex mex food. We went to meeting, then went to Grin’s for dinner with some friends.
Monday morning the news said:
The National Weather Service (NWS) has placed Hays County under a tornado watch until 1 p.m., and a flash flood watch until 4 p.m.
Oh great! Last time Jilly was here Hurricane Ike was the threat! Now this!
Jilly got packed up and we headed to Austin. We stopped by Urban Outfitters, then to the airport. It was pretty rainy and trafficky. We got her to the airport in time and there were no delays! We said our goodbyes.
I think we accomplished our 3 goals for the weekend.
Love ya Jilly!
