Road Trip to Austin


Sooo I am still posting about our adventures in Texas... I promise I will eventually catch up and write about my current life, but until then.... enjoy! Our last weekend in Texas we wanted to go on a road trip. We had really wanted to go to Austin while we were there, so Austin it was! We booked an Airbnb, and headed off. It was me, Andrew, and Silvia. We met Silvia at the first Airbnb we stayed at in Texas. We stayed at her place for about a month and a half and in that time became life long friends! She's so awesome and we are so happy we met her. She literally planned something for us to do every weekend (how lucky are we?).
On our way to Austin we stopped in Waco at the BSR Cable Ranch Park. First things first.... put this place on yo bucket list. It has a wake boarding cable park, the longest lazy river in the U.S., and 4 water slides. The water slides launch you at the very end so you literally fly into the air before landing in the water. It was one of funnest (and scariest) things I've ever done. Basically if you don't land right in the water.. you are done for.. trust me, I would know. I got a giant bruise on my leg just from landing in the water. After we were worn out from the park, we got back to road trippin' to Austin! Finally we arrived at our Airbnb and it was the cutest little blue guest house/tree house. We got showered and ready and went to dinner at a Mexican restaurant called Polvos. After dinner we headed to 6th Street. 6th street was definitely a bit of a wild experience but the live music was amazing! At every bar there was a different band playing. The people there were very interesting... but that made for some good people watching. I think the best part of the whole night was our pit stop at Voodoo Doughnuts. I never liked fruity cherrios until they were on top of my doughnut *insert heart eyes here*.  By midnight we were all so tired so we headed back to the house to get some sleep. In the morning we got up and ate at the cutest little breakfast place called Pacha. It was SO GOOD. I would eat breakfast there for every meal if I could. I had a yummy acai bowl and french toast (my fav). After breakfast we went kayaking on the Colorado River (ahhhhmazing), ate at Stubbs BBQ (even more amazing) and headed home! It was definitely a great way to end our time in Texas. Good food, good friends, good music, good times! Texas will forever have a place in my heart. We were so blessed to have met such amazing people down there and have the opportunity so do so many fun things. It was good for Andrew and I to get away for a couple months and be able to focus on our relationship with each other and with our Heavenly Father. We were so beyond blessed this summer. Texas forever, ya'll!
