A Happy Birthday in Texas!
This past week we made an impromptu trip back to Austin to celebrate my sisters 30th birthdays! It was a whirlwind few days, but was a blast! We surprised Angela and Tiffany as they were eating with the rest of the fam at Jack Allen’s Kitchen, which was fantastic by the way. It was a great night with great food and (half of) our dearly missed family.
The next day, we slept in then leisurely made our way to The Salt Lick to meet Rayner, Tanya, and little Gillian for some great bbq. On the way back into Austin, we saw a cyclist being trailed by a Nissan Armada. I joked that it was probably Lance Armstrong. When we got closer, I noticed the yellow accents on the jersey and realized it was, in fact, Lance! We snapped a picture, gave him a ” GO LANCE” and left him to his ride. It was pretty cool! We then went out with the crew for some more good times at Freddies for some additional tasty foods. My face was sore the next morning from smiling and laughing so much! Good stuff!
The following morning, we got up and went out to drive the Willow City Loop north of Fredericksburg to check out the amazing wildflowers that make their annual appearance in this special area. This loop would make a GREAT race! 40 miles on back roads through some of the most beautiful terrain Texas has to offer. I may have to go run it at some point just for fun – race or not! We made it back in time for a short nap, then went out to meet my sisters again at Red’s Porch. Another great evening with the girls!
All in all, another fantastic trip back to ATX. Here are a few more pictures… Click on THIS! Enjoy!
