Surprise Getaway To New Braunfels | Anchors Aweigh


Surprise Getaway To New Braunfels

Parker's birthday was this June, and he has been talking for months about how much he wanted to take a trip just the two of us. I never felt comfortable leaving Preston during his first year, but now that he is a little bit older, I knew it was time to take that leap and get away with the husband. Yall, I am so glad I did!

I surprised Parker with a trip to New Braunfels, TX for his birthday weekend. My mom was there when he got home from work, and I told him to pack his bags and that she would be staying with our little guy for the weekend. I've never seen a husband pack so quickly! ;)

We left Friday afternoon and got into New Braunfels in time for a late dinner at the Gristmill, a famous restaurant that seats something like 1,000 people. And we still had a 40 minute wait... needless to say, it's a popular place! We enjoyed a margarita and an adult conversation, which if you're a parent, you know that's the dream.

My original plan for Saturday was to float the Guadalupe river, but Parker decided he wanted to do Schlitterbahn instead. It turned out to be such a good decision. Schlitterbahn is a giant water park that is just pure fun, and we were laughing and enjoying rides/the water/each other the entire time. I think floating the river is a little more fun in a big group, so Schlitterbahn was perfect for the two of us.

Our phones were in lockers most of the day, so I didn't get many pictures, but we basically spent the day going on rides and floating the lazy river. The rides were a blast and perfect for someone like me that likes a little fun but isn't a thrill seeker. We both loved the lazy river the most though!

I kept smelling and seeing funnel cakes, so when on vacation, YOLO or whatever it is the kids are saying these days. This was some sort of cookie monster funnel cake. Whatever it was, it was sinfully delicious... and huge!

We took one look at this and knew we wouldn't be able to even eat half of it. And then, this happened.

I legitimately do not know how we finished that. We just looked down, and it was gone. We must have blacked out from heat exhaustion or something. ;)

We did our favorite date night (dinner and a movie) Saturday night at the Alamo Drafthouse. We saw Deadpool 2, which was entertaining but not as good as the first one.

Sunday morning, we woke up and headed back home to spend a couple of hours with my mom before she had to head home. It was the perfect weekend to recharge and get back to us. It was also a great reminder that before the 7 AM Saturdays and chicken nugget lunches and Moana on TV, there was us. I absolutely love this stage of life with our sweet baby, but it was so nice to get back to "us" again.

Looks like a fun weekend! Mac and I have also destroyed food dishes that we thought we had no chance of finishing. You win some, you lose some, haha.
