Why I love family vacations

My family and I recently returned from a FANTASTIC 14 day vacation! We spent a week in Cabo at the Playa Grande Resort : ) Then we headed back to the states and my parents so graciously kept our 2 boys at their home in Austin, TX and Travis and I had a few days in New Orleans to ourselves. Then we flew to Houston and helped my sis and bro-in-law move into their new (BEAUTIFUL) home in Cypress. And the last leg of our trip was spent in one of our favorite cities in the world… AUSTIN, TX. Seriously if I lived there I would need a personal trainer and a fresh anointing of self-control. The food is SOOO good! It doesn’t hurt that my parents live downtown and we can literally walk to these amazing eateries.
