This is Texas

Austin, actually.

My sweet husband let me go see my littlest sister (aka #3) for my birthday.  He stayed home with the four kiddos, multiple baseball/softball games, worked the snack shack.  I mean, this was no small present.  And he conquered it all!

So, here is a recap of the trip.

We did some shopping on South Congress.
The view of the city from the top of the hill.

 Tried on boots at Allen's Boots.  Hello, price tag.
But, I could go footloose in those red babies, I tell ya'!
Food trucks!!!
They all have cute names like Coat and Thai.

 But the best, the most awesome, long awaited meal happened right here at
Franklin Barbecue.
Cue the old school country music.
They open at 11 and close when they sell out.  We got there about 12 and were handed the "last man standing" sign.  Meaning the last man they would guarantee food! 
It was quite a wait, but just look at this...
It was beautiful and tasted Ah-mazin'!
California ain't got nothin' like it.
And this is my sister.
Isn't she presh?!

After that it was time to chill at Barton Springs.
It stays 70 degrees year round (about the same temp as the Woodleaf pool--difference being it is fondu-melting-pot hot outside and you actually want to go swimming in that cold water)

You know they do things bigger in Texas.  #3 decided she would go big by jumping off a perfectly good building.
372 feet up.  She climbed over a rooftop rail and repelled.  For charity.
She's so brave.  Sometimes big sisters have to look up to their younger sisters.

 I also have to hand it to her.
She ROCKED the mural game.
I have a lot to learn.
