Weekend Recap // Lost Pines

Some of you who’ve read my blog since the very beginning have seen my son grow up from just a little baby old into an energetic 4 year-old boy.  He’s got the sweetest spirit and everyone who meets him always comments what a joy he is.  He’s one of those kids who will sit and chat with you as long as you’re willing to talk.  I like sharing bits of my life with him here and I got some cute pictures this weekend while we were away on a quick getaway at Lost Pines in Bastrop, Texas.  I always debate if I should bring my good camera (Nikon D90) or just use my iPhone, but I’m always happy when I bring the good one.  
It was our first time at Lost Pines and I would totally recommend it for families, which is what it’s geared toward.  I hope we get to go back again!  I am a little sleepy today from sharing a bed with a toddler for two nights – feet and elbows hitting me all night.  Can you relate?
Pool time!  The pool at Lost Pines is awesome because a big portion of it is only two feet deep, so kids can swim and also stand up.  

“I’ve got my phone and my camera just like you, Mom!”  One time when leaving the hotel room, the door closed and without missing a beat, he’s all, “I forgot my phone!”  
Apparently, “sunbutter” is not the same as peanut butter.  
But, making s’mores is fun!  
I wish I got some better pics of this bull riding, but it was pretty dark out by the time it was his turn.  It went really slow and he hopped off when he was finished.    
My husband also adores our son.  He’s a really good, kind Dad. 
The pina coladas were really good too!  I’m wearing Stella & Dot Wanderlust Triple Wrap (on sale) and the love bracelet along with a few others no longer available.  These are perfect for the summer- I haven’t taken them off lately! 
I put a few more shots of our weekend on my Instagram.   I’m off today to see my hairdresser- she needs to clean up my hair after I impulsively cut off about 5 inches on Thursday!  I was just over it with this heat and never wanting to style it so it was always in a top knot or ponytail.  After I cut it, it looked pretty good from the front- but it’s a hot mess in the back!  You can catch a shot of that on Insta too.  πŸ˜‰  A few of you asked about hair curling details and you can see what I use to curl my hair here

    I know James enjoyed having some fun with mom and dad. I have heard that is a wonderful place for families.

    I adore this post. I am dying over James' face with the sunbutter! Looked like a fantastic and relaxing getaway.

      He definitely has his opinions about food! πŸ˜‰

    • July 29, 2014 / 9:11 pm

      Hi Lori! The place we stayed at is actually called Lost Pines. I do recommend it.

    sounds like a nice relaxing weekend! totally need to checkout how you curl your hair, I always have a issue trying to get both sides of my head to match when I curl them! lol

    • July 30, 2014 / 4:00 am

      I don't think about that! I did a post about my curling wand with a video tutorial (not mine) in the Fashion tab at the top of my blog. It might help! πŸ™‚

      Thank you! I'll always accept a sweet compliment on my son!

    My goodness, he's the spitting image of you πŸ™‚ SUCH a cutie. I need to tell my hubby about this place. I feel like we need more mini getaways with Miss Marli. Thanks for sharing this and can't wait to see the finished product on your hair!!! So wish I could sport the long a-line bob.

      That long bob would look great on you! My hair stylist was too afraid to go for it on this cut, but she said if I really want it shorter next time, she'll do it. She said it would be really short in the back.

    Looks like a great weekend with that sweet boy and your good egg! πŸ˜‰ xoxo

    • July 30, 2014 / 4:06 am

      We will miss you in Galveston!! πŸ™

    His face after eating that sunbutter! I don't even know what sunbutter is.
    Looks like you guys had a nice, relaxing weekend.

    • July 30, 2014 / 4:06 am

      I don't either, but he didn't like it! πŸ˜‰ The waitress said it was supposed to be like peanut butter.

    Fabulous photos! Looks like you had a great time! I've just discovered your blog tonight (and I have blog crush!)

    • July 30, 2014 / 4:02 am

      Oh so glad you did! Thanks for leaving a comment!

    Glad it was a fun family weekend! We went to Lost Pines a few weeks ago for the first time and loved it. I discovered a delicious drink on their pool menu…Key Lime Pie. It was a mix of piΓ±a colada and Margarita. It sounds a little weird, but the mix was perfection.

    • July 30, 2014 / 4:05 am

      Oh man, I didn't even pay attention to anything but the pina coladas, but that does sound good!

  11. July 29, 2014 / 1:26 pm

    Looks like a nice weekend, minus the bed sharing part. I'm pretty sure if I shared with my son I'd wake up with a few bruises, lol. He's a mover. Also-love the cell phone–too cute. They pick up on everything!

    • July 30, 2014 / 4:03 am

      Oh my gosh, the elbows, heels, feet to my stomach. He's not a good bed sharer! πŸ™‚

    What a fun weekend! I love seeing snippets of your family more and more!
