Family Visit

Joel’s mom and dad and siblings all came out for his 30th birthday party and stayed afterwards for a longer visit. It was so fun to show them around and spend time with all of them.

st. louis, pt. 2

One morning we had time to drive out to our alma mater (45 minutes east of St. Louis). We walked around our former campus passing dorms and halls and we used to know very well. We walked past the radio station where we had both been station managers. So much has changed. So much is the same.

recent adventures, pt. 3

The last installment of catch-up posts from Harry and Riina’s visit. It was so fun to have them in town!

Reimers Ranch Park
We weren’t able to get into Hamilton Pool, but a mini-hike around Reimers Ranch was nice. I forgot my camera and just had my iPhone on me. I think that means we’ll need to go back soon.

recent adventures, pt. 1

Back in the beginning of July, before we went to St. Louis for a work trip, we had a wonderful visit from friends in the UK, Harry and Riina. Showing people around Austin is one of my favorite things to do and we stayed busy!

I blog, partially, as a reminder to myself of my adventures. Please forgive the deluge of posts that are coming. I anticipate few words and tons of photos!

The first few days of our friends’ visit, we wandered around South Congress and the Capitol and I did not take my camera so I just a few iPhone photos from those days.

Texas Capitol & Mount Bonnell

Last week, while Joel’s mom was visiting, we did a lot of sightseeing. One day we ¬†went to the Texas State Capitol and then up to Mount Bonnell. Not surprisingly, Texas has the largest state capitol building in the US. It also has so many interesting little details and history and I went quite shutter-happy.

Now for a whole bunch of photos:
