Mom and Pop Cavanaugh in Texas

Dave's parents and Christina overlapped by one day so we had a couple weeks jam-packed with lots of fun.

After dropping off Christina at the airport we took Dave's parents to lunch at Chuy's. It's not the absolute best food in Texas, but I quite love their enchiladas. When they bring out their chips ask for their creamy jalapeno sauce! So yummy. 

We then took them to the Japanese Tea Gardens. Such a cool place! 

Later that day we took them to one of our favorite parks, Denman Estate. It's this huge beautiful property with a cute pond, beautiful trees, and a large historic estate house. You may recognize it from lots of photoshoots I have done there this past fall. It's close by and provides tons of different beautiful background options.

The next day we took a drive to the hill country to visit Fredricksburg. We went to visit Wildseed Farms and little did I know, October is when lots of wildflowers are in bloom here. There were so many different beautiful flowers in bloom! It was so pretty! This was another place we had been to before in April, when I normally think of as springtime and prime time for lots of beautiful flowers, but October is more of spring in Texas. Such a cute farm to explore, they also have a little shop with jams, salsas, and other yummy canned goods. 

Along main street of Fredricksburg, there are lots of fun antique stores. We went to one that we hadn't seen before that was packed with tons of cool French antiques. We spent so long exploring in there.

That night we went downtown to the river walk for a boat tour and some dinner. They have all new boats since the last time we went, and they are a lot nicer now! The old boats were so loud sometimes it was hard to even hear the guy giving the tour.

The next morning we hit the road for Waco, Texas to visit Magnolia Market. That place is always so crazy! But it is a cute place to look around. I will say, I was quite unimpressed with their bakery, not the best cupcakes and the scone I got was quite dry. In all honesty, if you are not already close, or going to be passing nearby, I don't really think it's worth driving out of your way for unless you have some good money to blow on home decor. 

Our last final full day we had breakfast at the Guenther House, a pretty house turned restaurant with yummy food. After that we went to check out the Alamo, probably the thing Dave's dad was most excited about, being such a big history buff. Next, we took them to Mission San Jose. And then had an early dinner at one of our favorite places, Down on Grayson. And for dessert, our favorite churros from Honcho's. We are obsessed!! We always get their "frozen" churro, a churro, cut in half, with ice cream and your choice of two sauces. I was obsessed with their seasonal pumpkin spice, with chocolate. 

It was lots of fun having them in town. I wish we could have taken them to the Farmers Market, but hopefully, they come again soon over a weekend! I'll update this with a vlog from the trip soon!
