Austin: Where We Stayed and What We Ate

We had so much fun while we were in Austin.  We stayed at the Lost Parrot Cabins.  They were amazing--so fun, colorful and whimsical!  Each cabin had a mural on the front, ours had the dancers.

It was the perfect place to stay.  When Talinn took his naps, we hung out by the pool and when he went down for the night, we enjoyed drinks on the porch.  It was the perfect mix of family and couple time.  If we had stayed at a hotel, we would have been cooped up inside for most of the day, which wouldn't have worked at all when it was sunny and 80 degrees every day!

The property had a bar, two hot tubs, several picnic tables and breakfast areas.  It was so cool.  I can't say enough good stuff about this place.  The pool was awesome with a stone waterfall and they even had toys!  Talinn loved the basketball hoop just like his daddy.  And they had these cool rubber ducks everywhere!  Talinn clung to them like a safety blanket when he went into the pool for the first time.

In addition to our amazing place, we ate so well!  We started out at the Turf N' Surf Po' Boy food truck.  I had the best shrimp po' boy and my husband had a bacon, jalapeno wrapped shrimp po' boy.  So good!  And yes that is a trampoline top being used as an awning in the background!

And I saved the best for last--the best barbecue I have ever had in my entire life!  And that's a big statement from me because I grew up in the south.  The Salt Lick is unbelievable and I just hope I get the opportunity to eat there again.  The ribs are to die for.  They are so juicy and flavorful...just so stinkin' delicious.

Oh such a good trip!  Stay tuned for what we did in Austin next week.


  1. Love the recap - is it weird if we copy your vacation?? I could really use some fun in the sun in Austin!

    1. Not at all! That's why I posted it, to take the work out of finding this stuff!


Thank you so much for commenting! It really makes my day!
