All Star Break!

A few weeks ago, we got to enjoy a few days off for the All-Star break! The season is long and can get pretty exhausting, so having those few consecutive days off to relax and enjoy plenty of quality time together is SO valuable.

After finishing up the road series in Frisco on Sunday night, we immediately headed out to Athens to visit Cy's aunt. We LOVE getting out there any chance we can get- it is so peaceful and refreshing to be out in the country and spend time with family.

Tuesday morning we hit the road and headed to Fredericksburg! On the way, we stopped to have lunch at The Salt Lick BBQ in Round Rock (just north of Austin). If you recall, we ate at their original location in Driftwood on our anniversary trip last fall. So tasty!

We arrived at our Airbnb rental on a peach orchard just outside of town in the evening, and stopped by the store to grab some snacks. It was such a cute cabin, highly recommend! (click HERE to check out the listing)

The next morning, (after sleeping in laaaate) we enjoyed a tasty breakfast of cinnamon rolls and farm fresh eggs that our hosts graciously left for us before we hit the town to explore. Fredericksburg has an adorable main street lined with tons of neat little shops and restaurants! We spent most of our day just strolling through town checking things out! We stopped for a snack at the cutest little ice cream shop, Clear River- so tasty!! We headed back to the cabin to take a nap and hang out for a bit before dinner at Pasta Bella. It was very tasty!

Of course, Cy built a fire in the backyard that night, despite it being like 90 degrees outside. The man loves to build fires haha!

We enjoyed breakfast at Sunset Grill before heading back to Corpus to end our trip. It was such a low-key, relaxing couple of days for us!

Thanks for reading! Hope you are having a great week!
