Dave and I had our date this morning. This was the first time I have left Veda with anyone other than Dave really, so I was a little worried. And I did find out that she BIT my friend's baby. Ugh... why do I have a biter? But other than that she did awesome ;) And my friend was sweet about it. In fact, she is just super sweet. I don't know that I've met anyone that is as nice to their kids as she is to hers , It's inspiring. (I talked about her HERE) So she is why I felt good about leaving our kids for a day time date-- Dave and I have ALWAYS gone out after the kiddos are in bed because of my freak of nature nature of being the mom that I am. ha...
So we started our date just by driving downtown Austin. Dave has been there a lot just for work and concerts, but I haven't had the chance yet. So we drove downtown and stopped for donuts.
Then we went to Zilker Park and saw Barton Springs. (Barton Springs is behind us in the photo). It's a natural spring that people swim in. It's kinda crazy. It's like a pool, but it's not. It's kinda a 'thing' here so I wanted to see it.
There is a big river/lake that goes through downtown that you can rent kayaks and canoes. And being the spontaneous crazies that we are and since I was wearing sparkly earrings, it seemed like the right thing to do.
Plus we saw probably 100 turtles in the river. It was super fun.
