So today we went to the Austin Ice Cream Festival in Austin, and then went to eat at Rounder's, which was pretty close by to waterloo park.

Was excellent pizza and the environment was very upscale for a pizza place. Curtains over the windows, dark red wall paint and gold chandeliers, set the tone for this pizzeria. (parking in the back)

The inside decor. Golden cushion chairs with black square tables.

And there was even something for the 80's gaming love of mine.....ARCADE GAMES!! lol

Damon playing a race car game...Gerald (not pictured) was playing on a multi-system "1943" "moon cirus". They also had your all time favorites: Donkey kong, Space invaders and Pac Man. At $.25 per game its a very inexpensive fun thing to do while waiting for your pizza pie.

We ordered a "Royal" size pizza with peperroni and mushrooms. Was fantastic!

All in all, our total bill was:

2 Fountain Sodas $4.00
1 Apple Juice $1.50
1 Royal $12.00
Peperroni $2.00
Mushrooms $1.00

Total w. tax: $22.19 :-)

Kawaii Shaved Ice - Roundrock, TX

My son running up to the snow cone entrance..lol.

On our way back home, we just had to stop at my favorite shaved ice location. Kawaii's in Roundrock.

There is actually a story behind this dessert eatery. When I was pregnant with my daughter Ava, I went for a 3D ultrasound which was just up the road from Kawaii's. Well on the first attempt, Ava was asleep and uncooperative. So we walked up the road and got a LARGE shaved ice, tiger's blood I believe. Definitely woke her up and was able to get some good 3D pictures of her ;-)

At $2.00 for a small cup (roughly 12oz) not a bad price for some awesome shaved ice. Be prepared when you go, it DOES NOT accept credit cards! Besides that, it is definitely worth the visit!
