Wrights in Austin

We just got back from another trip down to Austin.  Can you tell we love it there?  It's kind of a yearly tradition now to go with the Wrights.  You can see how much the kids have grown since last year (here).  Crazy.  While there I was able to get my car. and it was a great reunion...I've missed my wheels. 

On Friday night, we headed to the Hill Country Galleria for some food (and margs) and play.  The kids loved being able to run around, and the girls even played cars with Knox.  He was in heaven!

We ended the night with some fro-yo!  The girls are so good with Knox, helping him cross the street and holding his hands while walking.  He loves older kids, so it was a perfect combo!

When we woke up Sunday morning, the kids got to watch some cartoons while the adults made breakfast.  Knox apparently couldn't take his eyes of Mickey.

Always the helpers, Ella fed Knox his food.

And he in turn fed Gracie.

We spent the rest of the day (10am-4pm) by the pool.  We grilled burgers and hot dogs outside for lunch, and lounged all day.  It was amazing.  I'm so bummed I didn't get any pictures, but I assure you a good time as had by all.  Then we watched the sunset and had an amazing dinner of tenderloin and grilled veggies.  Yummo.

Sunday morning was our last day.  We made some biscuits and eggs for breakfast, and Knox got a little carried away with his half.

On our way out, we decided to hit up the Capitol.  Shannon wanted the girls to see it, and since Knox had never been I thought it was a great idea.  Of course, a photo shoot ensued.

All of the kiddos on the crest.  Knox seems thrilled.

We ended our trip on South Congress eating at the food trucks.  It was a bit warm, but a great time!  

We had such a fun trip.  Can't wait until next year :)
