Mother Daughter Trip

Mom and I decided back in April to take a weekend trip, just the 2 of us....somewhere....
Our final decision was Fredericksburg, and what a great choice. Not only is the drive a perfect distance, but the scenery and the town were so amazing.
We left Thursday after I dropped the triplets off at Mother's Day Out, and headed south on 35. I was so excited to make a stop at my roomie, KD sister and maid of honor Bethany's house. I got to see her precious baby girl, Ana Beth and handsome Hayden. It was such a treat to see each other in person and to play with Hayden and hold Anna. We decided to get some dinner, and I was SO glad that my friend and former boss Lil and her husband were able to meet us for Mexican food. It was a blessing of a visit and so fun to catch up with these special people in my life.
We got back on the road and enjoyed the beautiful sunset as we arrived into Fredericksburg. We checked into our hotel Thursday evening and headed for some dinner.

Thursday morning we were up and to a wonderful massage and facial downtown. The relaxation was exquisite and the momma and daughter time priceless. We weren't really sure our plan was after that, but because there was no plan, we had a blast! We decided to grab lunch at a local German restaurant on Main Street. We had fabulous food and experienced great German beer. We ended up spending the day up and down Main Street, in and out of shops, restaurants and stores. We decided to try a different German appetizer and beer at each spot. It was awesome! I would say my favorite for sure was the "Scotch Egg" at the Fredericksburg Brewing Company. It was super tasty!
After shopping, several beverages and a lot of fun, we headed back to the hotel for a swim. Later we got ready and headed out for dinner at Crossroad Salon & Steakhouse, as if we hadn't had enough food already on Friday, we had to end with a gourmet dinner. Here we are before our meal.

We woke up Saturday ready to hit the wineries all off of 290. We decided to go 3 different wineries.
We started at the beautiful Becker Vineyards & Lavender Farm...
Then off to Grape Creek Winery...
And then the final the last winery was, Torre di Pietra Vineyards & Winery.
All different, all beautiful and all tasty wine!
Saturday evening we headed to the famous Alamo Springs Cafe, where their hamburger was voted #3 in "D Magazine." Let me tell you, it was AWESOME! Just take a mouth is watering just thinking about it!
We even marked our presence!
We wrapped up the evening watching the bats fly out of the Bat Cave at the "Old Tunnel." We weren't able to see too well, however we did learn a lot about the history and culture of the area and how the mammals are preserved there.

We left Sunday morning after breakfast annd packing. The trip was so relaxing, perfect with no "schedule," and a great to share mother and daughter memories. Now that I am a mother I realize the importance of these special times, and can't wait to one day share memories as my girls grow into young women. Mother and Daughter, there's no greater bond.
