Oktoberfest re-cap!

Our trip to Fredericksburg was a lot of fun! We woke up at 5:30am on Friday and left our apt. around 6:30am. We got to Johnson City around Noon and fished at the Pedernales State Park until dark. It was so beautiful there, the pictures just don't do it justice.

Fredericksburg was about an hour west of the park and we arrived the Inn around 8:30pm. Our room was so cute. It fit my style perfectly and I couldn't have been happier about it. The tub was jacuzzi and the bed was so soft and comfortable.

The next day Jon woke up early to go fishing again, but I stayed at the hotel and slept in. When he got back we walked around town and then headed to Oktoberfest!

On Sunday we packed up and hit the road again, headed for home!

I'd also like to mention we rented a car for the 5 hour long drive and we got the cheapest one possible and it ended up being a Toyota Yaris. We were kinda nervous about driving such a tiny car because it's not the safest option in giant-truck-land also we were concerned about the comfort level, buut we were both quite surprised out how nice it was to use for such a long road trip. Way too small for us on a day-to-day basis because there is no trunk at all but I could see it's purposes for someone who doesn't lug shit around everywhere.
