Weekend in Austin

I haven't really done much writing on catchin you up with our lives lately.  Guess now would be a good time. :)

Two weekends ago Josh took me down to Austin for a weekend away.  We stayed with his aunt and uncle while we were there.  Their home was absolutely beautiful and it was great getting to catch up with family.

We got into Austin Friday night and Carol and Bob took us out to Salt Lick BBQ.  This place was awesome, there were SO many people there.  The atmosphere is just as amazing as the food.  They had a live band outside and the weather was perfect.  We really enjoyed getting to finally try Salt Lick and our time chatting with family.

Saturday we slept in and had a wonderful breakfast complements of Carol - and Bob... He shot an Elk last year and we were lucky enough to have some elk sausage.  It was actually really tasty.  A little weird though considering the elk was mounted on the wall right in front of me.  I felt like he was staring me down as I ate him.  Yeah- a little weird.

After breakfast they showed us around town - a side of Austin I had never seen before.  We had a delicious lunch and then visited the Capitol.  It was my first time ever getting to see the Capitol up close.  It's simply beautiful and SO big.  After that we all went to see True Grit and I loooooved it!

The weekend was really refreshing, but I was happy to get back home on Sunday.  There really is no place like home. :)
