lake, Gruene, Austin weekend!

Two weekends ago we headed out to the Hill Country with the dogs. Man were they SPOILED! From the whip cream treats at Starbucks, left overs from Hard 8 BBQ, swimming in the lake, playing with their cousin Hallie & seeing their aunties - they were wiped out when we got home! I love our little weekend get a ways. We went to get our pictures taken by Jenn at Bend the light - it was my surprise Christmas gift from my sweet husband! I CANNOT wait to show you all the images but for now - check them out on her blog:http://www.bendthelightblog.com/wynne-and-stephen/
She had some really nice things to say (thanks Jenn!) We took the images in Gruene, which we both love. We had one of our first dates there - our first road trip (surprise Jerry Jeff concert) and a few other fun times with friends. So it's a special place. We had a blast with her and the dogs and are so so so pleased with the images! We love them & can't wait to decorate our home with them. I'll have to show you when I get them all ordered & hung up :)

We stayed at the lake & had so much fun with our sweet little family. The dogs LOVED swimming in the lake and eating yummy food ;)

A trip to HSB wouldn't be complete without lunch at Bluebonnet! Yummy!!!
Saturaday we went into Austin to take our god daughter, Genevieve, 6 month picutres. The morning started off with our fave, Taco Shack, for breakfast then Stephen took the dogs to swim with my sister & Hallie and we went to the Wildflower center for G's pics. I just posted them on my photography blog here: http://wynneelderphotographyblog.com/?p=1233 But here are a few of my favorites :)

In between pics at the Wildflower center & at their casa we went to lunch at Shady Grove with my sisters & Lauren. It was a classic spring day in Austin (the kind that make me miss the city!) and we sat outside and ate. Besides the fact that I got pretty sick & thought they were going to have to call the show: I didn't know I was pregnant, it was a fun day! UPDATE: I am NOT pregnant. You know that show on TLC that has people who didn't know they were preg until they have a baby in a toilet? Well I was so sick that I was having contraction like feelings - so I felt like I was going to be on that show. Headed back to the lake for some R&R! Oh and Friday night we got to eat pizza with E-Beth & David for his birthday which was such a fun treat!
Austin is always hard because so many people we love live there - but this time, it was all family! It was super fun and we are so thankful for reasons to head down to the hill country!
