Lost Pines

This weekend my husband and I stole away to the Lost Pines Resort in Bastrop, TX. We had an amazing time - no children, no responsibility, no schedule. It was the first time we'd been away from our children in nearly 10 years! So we were definitely due for some alone time.

Here are some pictures from our trip (disclaimer: point and shoot pictures ahead, NOT professional quality):

This was taken on our hike... that would be a mirky Colorado River behind us in the first shot.

I couldn't believe how big this place was... I had been there once at night for a party, but in the daytime it is really a site to see.  And there is so much to do... we opted to keep things low key but you can go horseback riding, swimming, biking, there's even a community area for marshmellow roasting!

I loved this little reading knook near our room.

And the inscriptions in the carpet - this one says "Birds sing in the bushes, which always remain green."

As we came in and out of the lobby we noticed many couples cuddling in front of these fireplaces.  And all I got was this lousy picture!  Lol!  Maybe next time!

 View from our balcony.  Great place to sit under a starry night.

The food was FANTASTIC.  Oh my goodness I took more pictures of the food than this (it was that amazing), but the pancakes were by far my favorite.  Seriously though?  Everything I put in my mouth was scrumptious.

Thanks honey.  I loved every relaxing minute,  and I love YOU!
