in Austin with Mimi and Papa

We spent the weekend in Austin with "Mimi" and "Papa" (my parents) and had a delightful time relaxing. Well, my mom didn't spend much time relaxing; she was attending a nursing conference. But the rest of us enjoyed a leisurely visit to see the capitol, long talks over coffee, walks in the park and good food. Mimi joined us for most of our meals, and now I truly understand why Austin is known for its food! We had a sampling of traditional BBQ (Stubb's), Japanese, Tex-Mex, and the Sheraton breakfast buffet (a pregnant woman's dream come true!).
I am now 20 weeks pregnant. Can you tell? Just kidding. It's pretty obvious these days, though my large maternity shirts and pants, that are way too big for me, don't do me any favors:)

...Abigail was more than happy to get out of her stroller!

...and even more thrilled to try her hand at rock climbing! She surprised all of us at her skills and only needed spotting. We made one trip to the ER on Friday night (more to come on that later) and decided we didn't need to an additional visit to Austin's ER. You can't tell in this picture, but some areas of the wall were quite steep. It truly was a feat for our sometimes uncoordinated little girl.

Abigail was far more intersted in the leaves and sticks at her feet, so we had a hard time getting her to look at Papa, who was taking the picture!

Even though you can't see Mimi's face, Abigail's expression of joy is enough. She loves her "Mimi" and "Papa".
