We had so much fun visiting Gigi and Papa at their home in Spring Branch, TX! We made the trip as a surprise to my father-in-law for his 60th Birthday. Luca LOVED spending time with them and his cousins, we did too. Here are some photos from our trip. I wish I had some of the birthday party but I was too busy celebrating to take any!
Luca and his cousin, Payton, immediately connected as if no time had passed since they saw each other last. This is a The Salt Lick. AMAZING BBQ!!
Payton and Luca as Astronauts at the Children’s Museum in New Braunfels, TX.
Cousin bath time! There’s Robbie on the left, he’s just 6 months older than Luca.
Hiking at Canyon Lake. Everyone please note that my child is actually SMILING FOR A PHOTO. Soak it in.
Canyon lake. The water is gorgeous because it has a limestone bottom. I planned out our vacation home on the lake, it’s going to be Fabulous.
More hiking. I just can’t get over how beautiful it is there! Unfortunately, Luca and I had our first experience with fire ants, no photos of that adventure.
We finished our trip with a visit to Ladybird Johnson’s Wildflower Park. It was so inspirational. This photo was taken at a special climbing and play area, all made out of old tree stumps and branches!
Four Generations! On the right is Luca’s great-grandma Muriel, then Gigi. It was such a treat to get to spend time with Muriel because she lives in Minnesota and so we don’t see her often.
Spotting (then chasing) butterflies.
Luca didn’t want to leave TX, we didn’t really want to either. We had a wonderful time!
