Lost Pines Resort

What a great, long weekend. It was the perfect recipe for a memorable get-away: family, amazing food, lounging, sleeping late, gorgeous scenery...

The resort was beautiful.

We laid around the pool, made s'mores in the evenings at the fire pit, and just enjoyed the lazy pace and being together. A GREAT way to celebrate. We finished off the mini-vacation with a trip to downtown Austin where we stayed in a hotel and and met my family for a fabulous meal at The Melting Pot. I actually had to run to the bathroom at one point because I was laughing so hard that a dangerous level of pressure was put on my poor cramped bladder (thanks for that, Baby H.)

We even had a celebrity sighting in our Austin hotel... apparently this guy ran the Nike 10K Human Race and was chatting with his friends and new baby in the lobby. (That's Matthew M*Conaughey in case you're a little slow like me... Brad had to tell me twice that he was standing there... but I think Brad's main focus was how much he hated his shirt).

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day! Ours was the best yet...

Wow! Sounds really nice. I've always wanted to go to a Melting Pot restaurant, but I don't know if they have them up here. Dipping everything in cheese and chocolate? What could be better than that? :) Nice celeb spotting, as well!
