We are heading into the final weekend before Christmas!
If you’re like most of us, you probably have a few more gifts to grab. Be sure and check out the Shop & Drop with MyTime Kids Gym if you need a few hours of shopping without the little ones. And when you have everything wrapped up and you’re looking for something to do, check out the weekend events going on in and around the Lake Travis area.
If you want to feel like it’s winter here in Austin, head over to the Omni Barton Creek Resort for ice skating or catch the last snow day of the year at the Hill Country Galleria.
It looks like the rain will be tapering off and we’ll have a sunny weekend. Enjoy this beautiful place we get to call home!
