So Much Fun

It was his birthday weekend and we decided on the fly that we would take a day trip within an hour radius around Pflugerville. So off we went to explore!

Granger was our first stop at the Vintage Arts Coffeeshop - which is also a store full of booths and SUCH a cute place! Jon said the coffee was good, as well. We found some fun Christmas items in the shop for 75% off!

We drove through Holland, Texas and the only thing we saw that caught our eye was a little junk shop with a big SALE sign on the door. In we went, and found a few other items, such as popcorn boxes and a fancy bag for date night. The guy there was super friendly, and the store was loaded.

Over to Salado, where we arrived at The Strawberry Patch to purchase Jon's favorite snickerdoodle coffee, and we saw this Cucumber Dill Dressing that came home with us, too. There' s a sculpture garden in Salado, did you know that? We just drove through and stopped a bit, and then...

We had made reservations at Farmers Common, a restaurant at The Vineyard at Florence. Florence, Texas. We were blown away at the food and presentation, and the scenic view and fun we had at this place. We even played Chess on the grass. We want to go back and take friends! We didn't even know this place existed.

We had planned to play mini golf at Cen-Tex Mini Golf in Georgetown next, but it was closed, so Austin's Park was where we played, the next day. It was getting late, anyway, so we opted for ice cream at The Baked Bear in downtown Georgetown. I always enjoy mint chocolate chip and he chose a cookie ice cream sandwich. We then strolled the square, as it was the last night for the Christmas lights to twinkle.

The whole day was a blast, lots of fun stops, and so much good food. I forgot to mention that we found a cemetery in Jarrell (Land Cemetery) and parked there for an afternoon nap.

Get out the map, find some towns, and go...and enjoy! A day away is the best.
