Anyway, so after our fun Halloween weekend, we went to Austin for fun. We needed a break and needed to get out of town for a change of scenery and knew we wouldn't be going anywhere during the winter. We booked a room at the Embassy Suites so that we could put the girls to bed and then still have our own room to watch TV, such a great concept! And my mom was in town too for a wedding and volunteered to babysit so Todd and I could have a date night. We went to South Congress and ended up at the best Italian restaurant ever, Vespaio!! Yum! Check out the amazing food, I highly recommend eating there next time you are in Austin, butternut squash ravioli appetizer, Todd's baby cow dish, and my flounder- the flavors were sooo good!! Todd said it was the best meal he had ever eaten.
We also visited Todd's dad, Buelo Richard and went to Zilker Park the next day. The park is amazing, with a real fire truck, musical instruments, a balloon vendor and tons of stuff to climb on. I love Zilker but was disappointed the train was being repaired, Luna really wanted to ride it :(
