Texas Trip!

We had so much fun visiting Bri and Lynn in Texas!  Austin is such a cool city.  It's young, trendy, and active, yet somehow maintains the relaxed, cozy vibe you'd expect of Texas.  And they (not Bri and Lynn, but Texans in general) actually do wear the whole cowboy getup - the hat, the boots, tight jeans, the buckle, all of it!  I love all the outdoor BBQ joints, little coffee shops, and craziness of 6th Street.  The Pecan Street Festival was fun (but oh boy, is it toasty in Texas!), and I got to see the Alamo in San Antonio.  We saw (and smelled - ew!) the bats fly from the bridge, ate way too much ice cream, and had yummy dinners every night.  And Bri Bri's house is SOOO pretty! It's so funny -- Lynn has like 10 televisions!  My favorite things were eating BBQ, having dinner at Bess Bistro then going for dessert and coffee, going to the Market Square in San Antonio, and walking around at the Pecan Street Festival.  I think Joseph's favorite thing was probably playing ping pong with Lynn until 4am!  And he liked all the trees even though they are serial killer magnets (inside joke!).  And yes, Lynn asks the waitress whether a dish "is worth a damn" every time!  So cute!

Another Bodhi Pic

Bodhi gets so much attention from passers-by on his walks to the beach.  A photographer stopped us one day and asked if he could take his picture.  Here's Bodhi posing for the camera.
