Susan and Bentley's Excellent Vacation

David, Bentley and I all went to Austin for the July 4th weekend.
We were at the Barton Creek Resort.  We were there last year
for the 4th too and had so much fun that we decided to go back
again this year.  

This is the "Red White and Blue Cocktail" that David created
at the poolside bar.  It's a strawberry daiquiri, pina colada and
blue slushy mix.  Yummy!  After people saw what we were
drinking, they ordered it too.  

We left for Austin after David got off work last Wednesday
giving us a nice long holiday weekend.  

Barton Creek is so dog friendly and Bentley had a wonderful
vacation too.  Here is is on the bed eyeing half of the club
sandwich I ordered from room service.  Although I gave him
some of the turkey from it, he still wanted more.  I am sure
that he is thinking ~

I could just leap from the bed onto the cart and finish
up that sandwich for mama!

Look mama .... see how good I am being.  Don't you think
I could have another bite?

I'll pretend to not be interested.  Maybe that will work :-)

Trust me, Bentley had plenty of treats all weekend and lots of long walks
to work off the calories too.   Here is the view from our balcony.  What a
great resort.  David played golf with some attorneys from New Orleans.
I hung out by the pool.  Bentley made lots of friends with the other
dogs staying at the hotel.  He was smiling all the time!

Just look at how green everything is.  Austin is particularly beautiful
this summer after all the rain.   The houses that surround the resort are
huge and gorgeous.  

The resort put on their annual fireworks display.  We had a ring side
seat from our balcony.  The fireworks were on Friday the 3rd so 
everyone could enjoy the fireworks downtown in Austin on the 4th.

We were there for four days and the time just flew by.  Vacations
are always that way, don't you think?  I can hardly wait to plan our
next one.  We are thinking about taking a trip up to Dallas.  We 
were talking to some people we met on Saturday and they suggested
we stay at the Mansion at Turtle Creek.  I checked it out and they are
dog friendly too.  Bentley has already agreed to go ;-)

Hope y'all had a great 4th of July weekend.  Now it's back to
reality and stripping off the wallpaper in the guest bathroom.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
