Mama Turns 60!

We have been on several girls trips together on my side of the family. We have done Vegas, where we tried to see Celine Dion but she was sick and cancelled the show.. so we went and got Tiffany's bracelets with the ticket money! We have done others that have been awesome. Every single time we go, we laugh... A LOT. We have so much fun together and this last trip was NO EXCEPTION!

We surprised MOM this summer, in July on her birthday with a girls trip to San Antonio. We went last weekend and it was insane. Although, We missed having Robyn there with us.

The drive down seemed long, but we stopped in Austin for some food trucks for lunch. I didn't know this, but they have over 2000 food trucks there. They are everywhere! We couldn't decide what we wanted so I picked something I knew. Torchy's Tacos. It was great, obviously, but I am bummed I didn't branch out and try something new.

We made it to the Hotel, where we stayed in a CASITA. We basically were just away from the hotel with a semi-private pool and a golf cart to our car and the hotel. We walked around and checked it all out and low and behold, it was everything we imagined! San Antonio is beautiful!

Dinner at PF Changs night 1 was so delish. We were stuffed, but it was so good!! And so worth the food babies we had! Before dinner we had spent HOURS and HOURS shopping around the largest mall I have ever seen EVER.

Day 2, we did pedicures and some more shopping, followed by more food and more laughing. almost falling off of the golf carts, taking a nature walk up to the hotel, Dirty feet post pedi, and visiting the Alamo and the River walk. We ate at a Mexican place with a Mariachi band that played and serenaded us... for 15$.

The last day there, we shopped some more, ate some more and celebrated some more before we headed on our way. I wanted to stop at this BBQ place that we have seen on TV many many times. I was taking us there via GPS and everyone doubted me because we were truly in the middle of nowhere. Suddenly there it was... The Salt Lick. It was amazing. This is the BEST BBQ I have ever eaten, ever. It is right outside of Austin and it would take us about 3.5 hours to get there. I will be going back. It was so so so good.

Mom, we love you so much and had such a great trip. Many inside jokes... Pinkies up! Good food and fun memories as always. Lets not wait too much longer to have our next trip. You know our 10 year Vegas reunion would be next year... We should plan something big!
I am the luckiest one around to have these ladies and my best friends to be my family too. How did I get so lucky?! Happy Birthday Momma Bear!
