Connor's 2 Month Birthday Present - A Trip To Austin

Last Sunday Connor turned 2-months and to celebrate the occasion this past weekend we took our first family vacation to Austin, TX to visit our great friends, the Hoffmanns.  We were a little nervous for Connor’s first trip on an airplane, but he did great.  We loved being able to visit with Kyle, Theresa and most of all their 4-month old daughter, Payten.  Connor loved meeting his new girlfriend & I have no doubt his future wife.  We toured the city, took a dip in the pool, made a visit to the farmers market, did a little shopping for the babies & ate & ate & ate.  Austin has some delicious food!!  Below are a few favorite photos of our visit….

Enjoying a little time at the pool - the water was a little chilly, so Blair helped the little ones in

Sleeping beauties...while we enjoyed some delicious Texas BBQ

Our photo shoot for their future wedding slide show :) 
Payten's Grandma Ann gave them their matching outfits - the cutest little monkeys in town!

All the excitment wore both of them out!

Connor got to try out a few of Payten's toys - we put his ExerSaucer together when we got home!
Still needs to grow into it a bit, but practice makes perfect!

Mom & Connor hanging out

Payten just loves her some Connor!

First Sunday Football of the Season, Payten was ready to go in her pink Colts jersey

Blair was very excited for football - we made Connor a Lions fan for the day...Dad had quite a few of their players on his fantasy team

We walked around downtown Austin for a minute - it was a little toasty - but it is such a fun atmosphere with cute little stores, coffee shops, restaurants

Just a quick look at the capital building while driving to lunch

Have a say Payten is definitely Kyle's daughter

The Hoffmanns & Shipletts - wish they lived much closer!

 Goodbye Austin, we had such a great time!!
