San Antonio Zoo, Austin, Best Cinnamon Rolls EVER!

I’m back from San Antonio! It was a great week with my sisters and my nephew! I think my nephew gets cuter and cuter every time I see him! The things he says just cracked us up all week long and he just melts my little heart!

Annie, Tank, and I landed later on Monday evening. We hung out for a few before heading to bed. Tuesday was a bit of a lazy day- we went out for a quick breakfast and then Tonie had to go to work for a few hours. Annie and I hung out and got our workout on! Tonie has a really nice treadmill and this set up in her garage:

We had a nice home cooked meal that night and then hung out at the house for the evening!

Wednesday was a zoo day! After a quick morning workout, we headed out! I definitely enjoyed my day with Tank and it was such a nice day out! I didn’t get many good pictures of Tank because he doesn’t cooperate for photos at all, but we managed to snap a few of the sisters (the only ones we got)!

We spent our evening making the best cinnamon rolls ever. Seriously. MAKE THEM. I’d cut the butter by about 1/2 and we also added about 1/4 stick of cream cheese to the icing the second time we made them and it was a delicious addition that I definitely recommend. I plan on making these for Jon’s work.

Thursday we woke up early for a day trip to Austin! It was freezing cold and gloomy in Austin! Total bummer! We really didn’t spend too long there but we did get to see a few nice views of the city and experience a really yummy lunch at Slake Cafe.

Our Friday was spent having another day around the house! We woke up super early to make it to breakfast at the Magnolia Pancake Haus since we heard it was a must-eat place. My pancakes were definitely good, but I’m more of a French toast girl and I wouldn’t put their French toast on my top 10 list.

The rest of the day was spent lazing around and working out. I spent the night giving Tank his bath and hanging out with him. I tried to capture at last a few good shots for Gamma and Buppa (my mom and dad) but it was awfully hard with this kid moving around nonstop! His smile is the cutest thing ever but he will not smile for the camera!

Annie, Tank, and I headed out on a 7:25 flight this morning (and I thought I was going to die on the take off- it was not fun taking off into a storm- my least favorite thing to do ever) so I was home in time for some coffee with Laura this afternoon and a few hours walking around the mall. I’m doing laundry now before heading to my mom and dad’s for the night since Jon has friends in town. Can’t be listening to a bunch of guys snoring all night long!

I plan to catch up on Nashville and The Bachelor tonight! I must say- I’m stoked.
