Pieces of Austin

2008/12/27

We spent a little time out in our lovely city yesterday. We started out with a leisurely walk down at Town Lake at the city's center. The leaves are pretty bare, but still a nice time to be out and enjoy the good weather. It was mid 70s yesterday - strangely warm considering the cold snaps we've had lately.




And then we headed down town to visit the state capitol. We've been meaning to go since we moved but didn't make it happen until now. It is a beautiful building and the girls loved the huge staircases. Well, at least for a while until their legs got tired. We didn't take the official tour, but just wandered around to enjoy the architecture.




We do love our cowboys here in Texas. (But in case anyone is wondering, G.W. isn't very popular here in the capitol city.)

Looks like you guys are having a lot of fun exploring your new city. I've never been to Texas, it looks beautiful and people seem to love it there. Someday we will take a trip there...

Beautiful pictures.
