One Last Getaway

       Last Thursday we headed to the Texas Hill Country (near Austin) for a weekend of R&R before the little (most likely hairy) guy makes his big debut. It was MUCH needed for me, and I'm sure for Matt too. Although it was their hottest month and they were in the middle of a drought, it was still pretty enough to hike, kayak, lay by the pool, shop, and enjoy the scenery...HILLS!

       We brought Bijou along since the place was dog friendly (a lot of private cabins). She had her good and her bad moments, but we figured she deserved a vaca too before she gets spayed this weekend and has a baby brother in a couple months. 
       It was quite relaxing since we were forced to spend mid-day indoors because of the heat one day and the rain the next. Luckily our cabin was pretty nice, along with the resort which was very family friendly. One night they even had a movie under the stars with a fire and smores going...we missed it because we went to the nearby observatory to see the stars, Saturn, and Mars with the guidance of a local astronomer.
       We went shopping Friday afternoon at a nearby town's knick-knack shops...look what I found!

       The lake was extremely low due to the drought. All of the floating docks were sitting on the ground which made getting the kayak out there a little more difficult, but it is nothing we couldn't handle.

       We took a few maternity photos our last day (coming soon), followed by the series I like to call: "Bijou spots a rabbit...yes we have a hound dog"

Now I guess we better get back to the nursery which is about 50% done...eek
 He will be here before we know it!
