Recap...continued!
We spent Monday wandering around the city of Austin.  It is such a neat place!  I wasn't feeling super great so we didn't get to do as much as I would've liked, but I think we'll definitely be back.  Lots to explore!

The baby LOVES pizza!  All I was eating was dry cereal before this.  Weird?  I think genius.



Before we left, we scooted over to the University of Texas to take a peak.  Amazing!






On our way out of town, we stopped at a Southern Living recommended BBQ joint called Saltlick.  It was a super cool ambiance, but honestly, we were less than impressed. 




After lunch, we headed south again in route of Houston! 

Tuesday we spent the morning lounging around the hotel.  The weather was a little icky so our plans changed a bit.  We decided to head down to the Space Center.  Although there was a lot of stuff designed just for the kid in mind, we thought it was totally worth the drive and the money for the tour. 

We even got to see Mission Control!  How cool is that??


Here I am with Neil, a fellow Purdue grad.  We're tight.

Before leaving town on Wednesday, we checked out the Water Wall.  What a neat sight!  I bet it would be a perfect place for a picnic on a nice day.



I wasn't scared...I was just getting soaked!


We drove back to Dallas and had a few hours to kill before our flight.  We drove downtown a little bit and we also headed out to Arlington to check out the new football stadium.


Overall, we had a fantastic trip.  Texas is truly a state all it's own and I can't wait to go back!

That looks like such a charming city! I can't believe you got to see Mission Control, that brings back memories of watching Apollo 13 when I was younger :)
