It was a BEAUTIFUL and WARM day!!! So warm, in fact, that I had a hard time finding something for Izzy to wear, so we headed down to the outlet mall in Edinburg to do some shopping. See how excited she is? :)
But quite quickly she fell asleep (must've been from all the excitement shown above :) She decided that she needed to wear this hat in the car....
Do you see the drool?
After we were done shopping, we headed north to Heidelburg Cafe. I guess this place had been featured on the Food Network a few times, and it was recommended to Joacim by a guy he works with, so we headed up there to grave a bit of some authentic German food. All I kept hearing about were the brats....maybe this is why. I put my hand next to the brat to give you a size-reference. This thing was ENORMOUS!! Now, granted, it wasn't exactly to my liking (the whole sausage thing sometimes freaks me out) but the German Potato salad and roll were delicious!
Izzy had fun playing with the salt-n-pepper shakers
What I could hardly believe is that she actually ate, and enjoyed, some sausages (not the one I had, but others that were pretty similar to hot dogs)
And here she is giving some high-fives!
All-in-all, it was a really fun experience! They have some good food, and GREAT pastries. I was even able to find these cinnamon Mentos that I LOVE LOVE LOVE (and CANNOT find anywhere else...so I bought nearly all of them :) The place is FULL of kitschy stuff!
All of this activity was pretty rough on Izzy and her napping. She fell asleep every time we got in the car. here she is on the way home with Yurtle the Turtle
Once we got home, we were going to take her to a park nearby, but we were all pretty wiped out, so we played in the backyard and then decided to stay home. She went to bed without any problems, and Joacim and I caught up on some shows on the DVR. It was a really great day!
