Next Stop…Austin

We woke up Monday morning and headed for Austin. Surprisingly the traffic was not bad and we headed to meet Adam’s sister for brunch. She was in Austin for a girls trip. We ate at Snooze, and it was good! They were out of coffee though…really? 

After brunch we headed straight for downtown and the capitol building for a free tour. The tour was very informative and interesting!

That star is actually 8 feet in diameter! The building’s architecture and style was everything Texas…lots of stars, big everything, and ornate detail. Even the door hinges were stamped “Texas State Capitol”

You could see the Senate room and House of Representatives. This was the Senate.

Unfortunately most of our plans in Austin were nixed because of the ridiculous amount of rain. We ate at Juan in a Million. If you get to go order the Don Juan.

We had planned to go to Barton Springs pool, explore 6th street, and Congress Ave bridge to see the bats fly. All of those did not happen because of the downpours!

That is the University of Texas. While it is not my preferred shade of orange the stadium and campus was quite impressive.

On Tuesday we ate at Juan in a Million. If you get to go order the Don Juan. We shopped and drove out to Round Rock. We also used this trip to scout out future areas to live. I really liked Round Rock and all it had to offer.

We cut our time short in Austin and left early for Waco due to the rain. It worked out well in the end.
