Mother/Daughter Trip

Mom and I took our annual Mother-Daughter Trip a little early this year. We usually take it during harvest when Kanyon won't notice that I'm gone because he's so busy. But this year, harvest time is right around my due date! I also get Friday afternoons off in the summer so going in July would allow me a little more time.

I think this year's place was our favorite so far. We went to Cloudcroft, NM, the first year and stayed in a teeny cabin. I seriously don't think I would have been able to take a shower while pregnant in their bathroom, it was so small. The next year, we stayed in Fredericksburg at a bed and breakfast. We loved the b&b and all the shopping. But this year, we stayed at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country. The pool, the spa, the food, all of it was so great and I think just what we had in mind for these trips because it allowed us to talk and catch up almost the entire time.

We both got there a little before dinner time on Friday. We walked over to one of the restaurants and put our names down for a reservation and then walked around. It is a beautiful hotel and I couldn't wait to get in the lazy river the next day.

The restaurant was so nice and we both ate really well!

Of course, I took a picture of the food! Mom got a filet mignon and I got antelope! And it was so incredibly good.

Mom booked a pregnancy massage the next morning for me. I couldn't wait and it did not disappoint! She had a pillow form that allowed me to lay on my stomach for the first time in months. You don't realize how much you're going to miss that until you can't anymore. I had lots of knots and tension and the massage felt great. The spa had a cute farmhouse look to it. As well as a really cute gift shop that had a newborn bikini that Mom and I were really tempted to buy for Brindle!

After my massage, we went down to breakfast at the hotel cafe and stayed there just chatting for a long while before deciding to rent bicycles to ride around the property. That didn't last too long, though, because of how hot it was! We were soon in the lazy river for the next few hours!

After we'd finally had enough of the river, we got out to have a quick snack and then headed back to the room for a nap and shower before heading into San Antonio for dinner and a movie. We ended up seeing Step Up 4 (so good!) and going to an Italian restaurant, which I never get to eat! When we got back to the hotel, we decided to get back into the pool! They have an adult pool that we laid on floats in for a while before heading to bed. There was lots of activity going on at the resort, though, still. The resort is geared towards young families and has something all the time for them! They were showing Alvin and the Chipmunks on the lawn. Mom and I both agreed we should come back with my kids later.

Sunday morning, we slept in and then headed down to breakfast late before doing a little shopping in the gift shop and then checking out. Before leaving though, we went around and took a few pictures of the resort.

I'm pretty sure Mom has a couple of much better pictures of the two of us that I need to get. It was such a pretty resort and I really liked the country farmhouse theme. We got to relax and catch up the whole time. I'm ready to go back!
