Labor Day Fun!

My parents came to visit us this weekend, and we had so much fun. Too much fun. Kansas is too far away! Elli showed them all of her tricks and even came up with some brand new ones. Gotta impress the grandparents! She is now pulling herself up on everything, taking a few steps (while holding on), and showing a very strong desire to move from one piece of furniture to another! She also began at last to put finger food in her mouth (as opposed to just moving it around her tray).

On Saturday, we drove to a quaint small town that prides itself on being just that- quaint! Daniel and I had been here once before, but only for dinner. The town is exactly what we always pictured Texas to be like. I don't know if I can really explain that... partly the landscape, partly the cowboy hats and boots... it just has a charm that is uniquely Texan. Throughout the year they have live music and arts and crafts fairs.

We ate at The Gristmill, an actual mill that has been converted into a restaurant. The day was so pleasant, we were able to sit outside where it overlooks the Guadalupe River. Elli sampled and very much enjoyed her first crackers, although I'm pretty sure the wrapper was the best part!
Notice Elli is still fascinated by the wrapper.Elli and Grandpa outside of The Gristmill.

While Mom and I wandered through the gift and antique shops, the guys and Elli checked ou Gruene Hall, which claims to be the oldest dance hall in Texas. Daniel and I hope for a date night here someday! We'd better brush up on our two step!
