Toddler Friendly Restaurants – West Austin – Lake Travis/ Westlake/ Four Points

According to the Moms on Call Toddler Book toddlers only “have a 10-15 minute mealtime tolerance window” for sitting at a restaurant.  If your child has reached this stage, you already know what starts as this…

can quickly escalate to this…

…whether you like it or not. Your once sit back and relax- someone else is cooking and cleaning for you- is now far out the window.  And if you are trying to catch up with friends, you probably feel like that ship has sailed. The the question begins, how on earth are we supposed to enjoy eating out, what feels like, ever again!?

Tips and tricks on eating out with a toddler is whole nother blog, but today we will talk about one of the tips… go to a restaurant that has a playground or a safe play area.

Here is the compiled list of best restaurants to eat at with small children by region:

Lake Travis/ Lakeway/ Bee Cave area Restaurants:

Westlake Restaurants:

Four Points/ Steiner Ranch Restaurants:

Out of all of these toddler friendly restaurants, I for sure have my favorites to take this little one to, but as everyone has their own pallets and price range I wanted to keep this more as a comprehensive list versus a review. Let me know if there are any places you LOVE that I missed. XO

Ariella’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash Portraits

Meet Ariella… again!

You may remember her from her newborn portrait session. Well now Ariella has turned 1!  This poor sunshine was a little under the weather at our photo session, but I think we still did quite okay with photographing a few sweet smiles. 🙂

What do you think of the cake smash mash up timeline print? I am so excited to have this as a brand new print product at the studio. I am also offering this mash up for the 6 month photo session, or after they can sit up on their own with some baby food (instead of cake). Ask about the “watch me grow” session package for a close up on your little one’s first year of life.
