Well, Christine and I have been living in Texas for 3 years now and have never been to Austin, the state capitol! Craziness, I know. We remedied that situation this past weekend with a new Braunfels tubing and Austin 6th street weekend. Christine, Brian, and I drove straight to tubing on Saturday morning and met up with the rest of the crew that had stayed in Austin the night before. sorry, no pics, the camera isn't waterproof :(
After a totally relaxing and entertaining 2.5 hour float down the Guadalupe River with minimal injuries to our group, we all drove to Austin. We stayed at the Hilton on 4th/5th street giving us easy walking access to the city. After everyone was rested and cleaned up we headed to dinner and then 6th street! A few pics from the night:
The next morning Christine and I got up for 9:30am mass (yes, it was rough-city) and walked to church. The Austin Cathedral was completely gorgeous, and I'm really glad I was able to inhale some coffee and make it. After mass we walked around Austin a bit, visited the capitol building and did some general sightseeing. And, of course I had to try out a few cupcakeries while I was there (more on them in a later post). Here are our pics from wandering the city:
I can't wait to visit again!
