Here in Austin our spring break was in the middle of March, so I am still running at least a month behind in my posts but I couldn't allow myself to lose the memories of that week into the abyss of my iphoto gallery. So, without much clever analysis or great stories to accompany the photos, here was our spring break in a nutshell:
Either we dragged the kids or the kids dragged us all around Texas during their week off of school. The first stop Monday afternoon was The Mighty Cone, a not-so-temporary taco truck that has received a lot of notoriety and is owned by a very exclusive upscale restaurant across town. We'd never to been to The Mighty Cone but had heard about it and seen it recommended in magazines. We learned the hard way that they are only closed on Mondays.
Check it out, across the street from Mighty Cone is Allen's boots with a huge boot donning the name of our favorite Allen!
There is also a candy store downtown with an old fashioned soda fountain that has generated some buzz, I wasn't very impressed. I guess I've seen more than my share of amazing soda fountains in my day and this one was lame by comparison but the kids loved the candy!
Abbie got a cookies and cream ice cream cone at the soda fountain...
...but most of it ended up on her face!
After no luck at The Mighty Cone, we headed straight to Chuy's!!! Hardly a consolation prize and always a favorite!
Wednesday was St. Patrick's Day and last year the kids wouldn't eat the green eggs, so I went another way this year
no kids were pinched today
Thursday we were finally down at the resort and we were grateful it was warm enough to swim because it's been a little cooler this year than last.
I saw these swimsuits at Christmas time in a catalog at my dad's. Crazy expensive but too cute and totally worth it, right?
where there's a will...
This is Bracken being furious and dramatic about how many pictures I am taking on our way to the pool. I remember what it was like to be six...and now I know why my parents drove me crazy taking so many pictures.

It was an itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny, yellow polka dot bikini...and yes all three girls also have this swimsuit
