Despite a newborn, less than two hours of sleep for mama, a rainstorm, an "in office procedure", and not having a car that fits our whole brood now that lovely Rachel is in town, we opted to caravan to Austin this weekend. Ever since Sam's short tour in San Antonio (9 years ago!) I've been dying to go to Zilker Park in Austin for a day at Barton Creek Springs Pool. Somehow we've never done it: it always seems the waters too cold, the weather too hot, or the traffic too bad. All of that held true yesterday but it was completely worth it. I kept exclaiming what a great day I was having. It was just a memory making kind of day and we got to spend it as a big happy family!
