Happy Easter!

Posted on April 23, 2011


If you celebrate the upcoming holiday, Happy Easter!  If not, Happy Weekend!

The way we spend holidays changed dramatically after M and I moved from Iowa to Texas.  Gone were the holidays spent attending big, family get-togethers with homemade goodies that stretched for miles.  Although we miss the old holiday traditions, our little family of three has created our own, treasured traditions.

We often use holidays as a time to hit up the touristy destinations in and around the San Antonio area.  Especially during the early morning hours, places like the River Walk, The Alamo and Hemisfair Park are usually fairly desolate.  It’s wonderful to mosey around and take our time enjoying the scenery, without having to weave around the throngs of tourists.

So, although we are unable to spend this weekend with our families, we are going to take the advice on the sign below and play on the grass!

We are taking advantage of every moment during these last couple of months in Texas.  Here’s what on the agenda for this weekend:

  • A visit to dog friendly Austin with Gus:
    • Zilker Botanical Garden
    • Walk along Lady Bird Lake
    • Lunch at McCormick & Schmick’s – free $30 to use during my birthday month!  Free lunch?  Yes please.
    • Gus friendly shopping at The Domain
  • Travel planning:
    • We must conclude the Los Angeles portion this weekend – the city is taking us forever to plan!
    • Start on San Francisco planning – *squeal*  We heart SF and may decide to conclude our travels and live happily ever after there.  Just kidding.  Sort of. πŸ˜‰
  • Hike at Eisenhower Park with Gus

We’re cramming a lot in this weekend and are anxious to get started.  The camera battery is charged, the memory card cleared and our day bag is packed.  We’re hitting the road this a.m.!


We are participating in this weekend’s Saturday Pet Blogger Hop.  If you blog about your pets, feel free to add your URL to the Linky below.  We’ve met many great blog friends through the Saturday Hop and highly encourage you to participate!
