lunch at lake travis

We started our day with a nice morning walk.  It was pretty chilly out this morning (so exciting!) so we broke out some cooler weather clothes.  Avery and her grandpa Rick ready to head out!
After our normal loop, we stopped at the park to play for a little while.  Avery loved swinging on the swing as always. 
Holding on and going high!
After the swing, she went down the slide a few times. 
She loved it!
After our walk, we spent the rest of the morning at home.  We had breakfast, coffee, got showers, and relaxed while Avery took her morning nap.  Once she woke up, we headed out to Lake Travis.  We had lunch at Uncle Billy's BBQ on the lake.  We love that restaurant and the view is so pretty.  The weather was beautiful today to eat outside.  Avery was checking out the menu and looking at all the good food options!
A view from our table. So pretty!  Normally, there aren't islands in the middle of the lake.  Since it has been so dry here in Austin without any rain for months, the lake is about 38 feet below average. 
All the girls minus Avery at lunch waiting on appetizers.  We love the fried pickles! 
The family after lunch.  It was such a nice lunch and we all enjoyed. 
After lunch, we decided to go walk around the Hill Country Galleria for a little while.  It got pretty hot today.  We went into a few stores and looked around.  I was so excited to see that Bath and Body Works has their holiday scents out.  I am in LOVE with the Vanilla Bean Noel.  I get it every year! 

The rest of the afternoon was pretty relaxing around the house.  Emily and I ran to Target for a few things.  Eric prepared two home made pizzas for dinner. 
One of the delicious pizzas!  We used our fresh basil that we grow in the backyard, tomato, and mozzarella. 
It has been a fun and busy day!  I'm super tired and will be heading to bed soon.  Have a wonderful weekend!
