First of all we went to Kerbey Lane for breakfast. We had a small wait and then sat down to breakfast. I think it was the best breakfast I’ve ever eaten. I got some really awesome omelet – The Portobello Omelet – Grilled portobello mushroom, red bell peppers and feta cheese. Topped with basil pesto.$8.05. It was soooo good.
They also had awesome pumpkin pancakes. If I lived in Austin I’d be here all the time. I’d totally recommend this place if you need a place to go to breakfast!
Then we went driving around just to sightsee, without a destination, and found this place by accident – Mount Bonnel. It’s a point that sits 775 feet above sea level. It took awhile to climb and I was tired by the time I made it, but the view was amazing. We couldn’t stay long because we had to check out of the hotel. We told the boys we had to leave and they cried. We told them we would come back.
We went and checked out and then came back. The boys hiked up and down the hill through the woods. They had a blast. Joe and I really enjoyed it as well. These are my favorite photos.
Overall we had a great trip and loved Austin. We loved the feel of the city and didn’t want to go back home!
Next – Trip to the state Capital. Notice – the Mount climbing and the State Capital trip were – FREE!!
This was the funniest story. The boys saw this squirrel and went chasing after it. The squirrel climbed the tree and the boys were like, ‘Where did the squirrel go?’ As they walked around the tree, the squirrel kept going around too, so they never saw the squirrel. Joe and I were laughing so hard, we almost fell over. See the squirrel on the other side of the tree?!
We heard Saltlick was the best bbq in Austin. We drove quite a ways out in the country to get there. We had about a 45 min wait to get seated. We were given what you see here and it was unlimited. Joe and I thought the meat was good, the sides were ok…but it wasn’t amazing. Plus - THEY ONLY TAKE CASH!!! Seriously!?!?!? We didn’t have cash. We had to use their ATM, which charged fees, to pay the bill. RIDICULOUS! Who doesn’t take credit cards anymore?
