On The Road: An Austin, Texas Staycation

Most summers we try to take an international trip while Aaron is on hiatus and things are slowing down, but the stars didn’t seem to align this summer.  For starters, we couldn’t decide on a destination!  Greece, Iceland, and Portugal were all at the top of our list, but we just couldn’t seem to pull the trigger.  To make matters trickier, work was super busy for me in May and June, so we decided to forgo the adventure abroad for one closer to home in one of our favorite cities!  We spent a few days with my family, …
