Kenneth and I were very blessed to sneak away this past weekend up to Fredericksburg for our last vacation without a little one around. We stayed at the Trois Bed and Breakfast, which was located across from Enchanted Rock. Here is a recap of our weekend:

Friday afternoon when we got there we went to explore the grounds on Trois Estate and found many interesting things...
This is was our room, it was very cozy!

 View of Enchanted Rock from Trois Estate.
 This is the door to the underground chapel and grotto.
 Underground chapel
 Grotto (sadly because of the drought is was very low)
 Birdcage Dinner Theater

 The world's largest cap gun museum (who knew it would be at Trois Estate, apparently the owner never grew up)

 The Safari Room (the most dead animals I've ever seen in one place)

 Saturday morning we started off the day with a hike and picnic at Enchanted Rock. I have never received so many compliments from passer-byers who most of the time gawked and stared at my large belly. 

After several breaks, we finally made it to the summit, elevation 425 feet!
 The cave... we only made it half way into the cave, and then we realized my belly would not fit into the deeper cave opening :(
 After Enchanted Rock, we headed to Fredericksburg to walk Main Street and then had dinner at The Nest.
 Dessert at Clear River Pecan Co. Homemade Ice-cream!
 After dessert we drove about 15 minutes to the historic Luckenbach dance hall. The band that played was great and it was fun dancing the night away.
 Sunday morning we went to church at St. Mary's. It was beyond beautiful!
 Before the drive home we ate at Hondo's, a local diner that had a laid back porch with live music even on Sunday!
Thank you Jeff for making this whole weekend possible!
Thank you Kenneth for stopping every hour during the drive, putting up with my swollen feet and for being the best husband ever! I can't wait to be a parent with you :)
