Visit to Art City Austin

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I usually do not post on the weekends but I wanted to share what we did today. 

First off, my mom came down yesterday afternoon.  She had some stuff to pick up and she stayed overnight.  We took her to Top Notch last night for burgers, onion rings and fries.  Top Notch is in several scenes of the movie Dazed and Confused.  We love going there and last night was yummy!

This morning we took our old furniture to the Pflugerville Clean Up Day.  So nice to get that stuff outta here!  Mom headed back home and we headed to downtown Austin for Art City Austin.  It was our first time and we had fun.  There are artists from all over the US showing and selling their creations.  My son loves to draw and he took pictures with his camera of stuff that he really liked.  There was so much to see!  So many talented and creative minds sharing their gifts with all of us.  I wish we could have afforded to buy something!  Maybe one day!  Here are some pics from the event and of the kids making their own creations!

Terry bought the kids a geode.  The artist helped them crack it open to reveal the beauty of nature.

We ended our trip with Linner(our new word combination for lunch and dinner)  at Chuy's!  Sorry no pictures!  We were to busy stuffing our faces!
