I'm such a lucky mom!

You know that feeling when you are alseep that someone is standing there looking at you? Well I did yesterday morning, I opened my eyes to four eyes staring back at me, "Happy Mother's Day Mom!" The boys made an art project for me that will be proudly hung in our new art room (more on that later) Then Harry announced that we were going to Austin for the day. I was shocked as I thought we had other plans.

We stopped in Bastrop State Park for a little drive through the winding tree filled hills...and a couple photos

Logan was trying to sign "I Love You" this was his best attempt :)
Then it was lunch time..

We stopped at Home Slice Pizza. The crust is fantastic, thank goodness it is in Austin and not in Houston otherwise we would be there waaaaayyyy too much!

We headed out check out the local shops on Congress

and we stopped at Big Top Candy Shop. The boys knew there was a candy shop and we just could not get there fast enough. They have some fantastic salt water taffy and a great old fashion soda fountain. You can get Wonka bars, chocolate bandaids, Oh and Chocolate Covered Bacon!

This place is so much fun you become a kid again and laugh throughout most of the store, it is so amusing! Check out the little nuns that line the entire roof of the store!

This little girl came up to me in the store...full of so many cool toys and said, "Hey that is a cool camera!" I said, "Yes! I think it is too!!!" She asked me to take her picture and I gladly did...she was thrilled to see her image in the review screen

yes Mom I know you don't like this :)

(but Mom you should like this one instead. Love you!)

So we ended the day by stopping at Berdoll Pecan Farm it is a fantastic pecan shop where you can spend way too much money on honey glazed pecans that are too easy to eat that you have to hide the bag before they are all gone....Harry have you seen the bag? I can't find it!

It was a fantastic day, I have been wanting to go to Austin for a while now to just "play" and take pictures of my family which I had a blast doing. It was a perfect day for me. Thank you Family! Love you!
