Out of Town Guests

July 3, 2008 at 4:53 pm 4 comments

We had five out of town guests recently. Alex’s best friends (family rather) from the Midwest made the trip down to Austin. The first four came on June 21st while the last of the five came on June 26th. They all left this past Sunday, back to Ohio, Michigan, and Chicago.

Unfortunately Alex was only able to take two full days off to spend with them where I was only able to take off one. However, they were very self-sufficient guests and had driven their own Toyota Prius down. So with an eco-friendly automobile and plenty of maps they explored Austin on their own during the weekdays and spent the evenings with us.

We took them all around Austin, highlights included; Casa de Luz, Barton Springs, South Congress, Congress bridge to see the bats fly, San Antonio, Mayfield Park, and Mt. Bonnell

Since moving here Alex has become a very proud Austinite so it was a lot of fun for him showing his friends “how cool” Austin is. We ate a lot of great ethnic foods and of course Tex Mex and Barbecue! The weather was great while they were here, albeit, insanely hot (especially for Northerners). But they were able to adapt and not wilt like delicate flowers TOO much :-)

In the end they all had a great time and promised to come back soon as they loved it so much here.

    i do hope they brought their parasols and personal cooling systems along for the trip, or at least some heavy card stock with which to fan themselves. we midwesterners will in fact wither in the blistering sun if proper precautions are not taken. at this very moment i am quite ill with an elbow sunburn and have decided that it is severe enough to require a week’s recuperation. i am relieved to hear that no one else must suffer the same dark fate.
