I heart Austin

Last weekend Ryan and I joined his dad in Austin. I love that city. The food, the culture, the architecture. This time of year is blue bonnet season and it made the drive a scavenger hunt for me. I really wanted to find fields of them, but I think we were just a little too soon. However I did manage to capture a few. We took Tom to the best BBQ, Rudy's. He enjoyed it just as much as we do. Delicious.

Tom was in Austin for a big power conference. Part of the conference is for the actual Linemen, and they have a linemen rodeo. I had never heard of such a thing. It was fun to watch the people from his area compete, and they won 1st place in one of the events!

Austin also has this neighborhood that we have had our eyes on for about a year, so of course we had to do another drive-thru. We would love to build a home something similar to these ones......someday, someday.
