Texas: Austin

We spent our last couple of days in Austin. We really enjoyed it. There is a lot to see. Here a few of the things we did.

We walked up to see the Capital Building. Devon and Brennon went inside. The rest of us sat under a tree to rest for a bit.
We walked up a ton of stairs at Mt. Bonnell to get a view of Town Lake. It was beautiful. Devon brought his binoculars so he could get a closer look.We saw a swimming spring at Zilker Park.
We took a train ride at the park also. Poor Sarah got stung by a bee on her finger, while we waited for our train ride to start.

The wind outside our hotel almost blew Devon away.

We enjoyed some cupcakes at Hey Cupcake.

We had some good grub at Torchy's. They had really good tacos and queso. Devon is still thinking about the fajita taco he had. I didn't try that one but the fried avacado and trailer park tacos were really good.

We also headed over to the flea market at Round Top on Saturday before driving home. We got back home around 8am on Sunday morning. That drive was killer. It seemed like it took us FOREVER to get out of Texas.

Go back and check out my post on Houston. I forgot to post a picture of a man we saw all over Houston carrying a giant cross. Amber pointed it out, and I went and fixed my mistake.
