Babymoon Getaway

Jeremy and I headed out of town for little getaway aka "babymoon" for some relaxation before our second baby enters the world.  It was a chance for us to be us, spend time alone together and relax!  We originally thought it would be fun to go to Mexico to the beach but since I'm well into my 3rd trimester and I hit 31 weeks the day we left we knew it would be wise to stay local.  Local being 3 hours away to Horseshoe Bay, TX near Austin.  It's a resort that's on a lake (with a swimable beach), golf, restaurants and 4 pools.  Pretty perfect for what we were looking for.  

The drive down was nice since we got to take our time.  We stopped to have lunch, took our time and stopped for a craving I was having....a strawberry slush.  My favorite part is all the fresh strawberries at the bottom.  :)

once we got settled into our hotel room we took a nap!! yes, it was blissful.  then we headed over to the other side of the resort (the lake side) to check things out.  while we were there we stopped and had some dinner by the lake.  
before dinner we noticed that a band was starting to set up right next to the lake so after dinner we headed over to listen to them a bit.  it wasn't really our kinda music (maybe because we were a little young) but they were really good.  
once the place started filling up, we headed back over to our area of the resort and ended our night by roasting some smore's.  delish.  
The following morning I woke up with upper belly pain so I called my doctor and she said if it didn't go away after 30 minutes to head to the ER.  So that's what we did.  Thankfully, as soon as we got to the parking lot, the pain completely went away.  To make sure all was well, I got out of the car and walked around a little to see if it would come back.  I got back in the car and laid my seat back to see if it would come back while laying since that's how it started and nothing!  So we made the decision to head back towards the resort.  Before we went back we stopped at the local breakfast cafe that was supposed to be the place to eat.  I think it's even been featured on the Food Network.  And it was delish.  
Since the morning started out really early for us we went back to the room and slept till 1pm.  I can't remember the last time we did that.  It was blissful I tell ya.  Naturally we woke up hungry so we headed down to one of the restaurants at ate outside for lunch.  
After lunch we got ready and headed over to the other side of the resort to the "beach" area by the lake.  
This was 26 person hot tub.  Never seen anything like it.  
My view while relaxing by the lake.  Since it was labor day weekend, there were lots of boats and jets skis on the lake.  I grew up on a lake and miss it.  It's so much fun to boat ride, ski and then park near a beach area and grill off the side of the boat.  So much fun.
After our lake day, we headed over for some yummy grub.  Steaks and dessert.  :)
Our last morning, we got up and went to explore the rest of the resort before we headed back home.

We had so much fun and it was exactly what we needed.  Lots of relaxation and fun.

I highly suggest this resort if you live nearby.  It's amazing.  Some where that would be fun to take a lot of people to for a mini-vacation because there's so much to do.  Especially for children.
