After Rudy being gone for almost two weeks, we wanted to squeeze in a little family time yesterday!! This is also one of the main reasons I’ve been MIA on here…single parenting doesn’t leave a lot of time for myself or anything really, hence no blogging! =(
Nonetheless, today we got out for some much needed family time, and went down to the Zilker Garden Festival! We absolutely love the Zilker Botanical Garden because it’s absolutely beautiful, and when you throw in kid crafts, music, and food trucks, we are so there!
Our engagement anniversary just passed at the end of January, and I absolutely love celebrating this specific anniversary. It was an important day, as we decided to hold hands for the rest of our lives and stand by one another, and share everything between us. I know what you’re thinking…what about our wedding anniversary? Well, our wedding anniversary is important, but I find that since we technically chose that day out of convenience for our family/friends and schedules, it loses a bit of its “special-ness” because it just doesn’t have that touch of spontaneity, which is exactly what I love about our engagement.
What a beautiful weekend if you were down in the south! 60s and 70s, and a whole lotta sun!! We decided to check out Midway Food Park yesterday and it was an absolute blast!
If you’re a local in Austin, definitely check out this really cool food trailer park! Quite a few cuisines to choose from, even if you’re vegan! Plus, they have a ton of area for the kids’ to run around it and a playscape area!
On Tuesday, we ventured out to check out a really cool spot in Austin known as Hope Outdoor Gallery. I’ve always wanted to see this piece of the city as it is definitely a giant piece of artwork! The colors are amazing to capture, and its definitely expressive (some bad, but mostly good! Let’s just say I’m glad Aria doesn’t know how to read otherwise those four letter words would’ve been a little harder to explain! Ha!). The kids had a blast walking around and looking out at the entire city from the top! Such a fun little excursion!
They are going to move it according to news which is definitely sad. I love that people can come here with their own spray can, and write whatever message they want! Many a proposals have definitely happened here!
Last Friday, we all ventured out to the Circuit of the Americas and it was such a fun experience with the kids! They were so excited to see all the cars zooming by! Just look at that happy face of Rishi’s! He was clapping and dancing as the cars raced by! I really think we made all his dreams in life come true! =)
The racetrack is G I A N T. There was so much going on and so much to see!! We sat closer to a turn so that we could actually see the cars slow down versus them just zipping by! They are so incredible and loud!
We also lucked out with the weather! It was one of the most beautiful days to be out there!
