Parents Weekend

It's not just for college kids anymore :) Our Mom's blessed us with a visit last week and we did a TON of fun stuff. After picking them up at the airport our first stop was lunch at Yia Yia Mary's , so good!

Our football game was Thursday night.

Joe, his Mom and Hunter

Our Happy Drew, he REALLY didn't want to have his picture taken. He was trying his best to hide it, I think he did well. You can barely tell........

Friday we headed for a drive in the country to Round Top. We ate lunch here, my Mom and I shared a shrimp BLT and each had a mug of Chicken Corn Chowder. We thought it went better with Joe's Jalapeno cheese soup, so we mixed the two together. We were right!

Everyones knows when you're out to lunch you have to stop by a cute shop, so we did! The Apotheacary doesn't disappoint!

Then if all that wasn't enough, Joe indulged my wander lust and went in search of this and came up with this too!

Saturday Drew and Hunter marched in their UIL Region 27 Marching Contest. The band did great getting all ones for the 22nd consecutive year.

Saturday night we celebrated Hunter's birthday at one of our all time favortie restaurants, Shogun

Sunday we said Goodbye to Joe's Mom and headed to Austin. First stop was UT to check out a sweet friend's dorm.

My Mom and I have read about and seen this airstream/foodtruck for years and have wanted to visit! Only problem, there was a 45 minute wait once you placed your order:(

We had lunch at The Oasis, which has beautiful views and even better company! Coming and going we always stop here!

Monday the guys went back to work and school:( My Mom and I headed to Pappadeaux's for lunch and of course more shopping :)

For dinner we tried a new recipe. It was a hit....for those who ate it!

And finally today was my Mom's last day, we squeezed in one more restaurant. This time we went with an urban theme and headed downtown to The Bombay Pizza Company which was AWESOME! And because we have that go-to-a-cute-store-after-you-eat rule. We crossed the street and went to CVS and bought some killer lotion that makes your hands sooooo smooth!

It was a great visit and we can't wait to do it again!

PS I think our dogs will miss Grandmas the most!
