Just like me, Austin Rocks.

Just a few pics from our trip….
I need to document them somewhere since *someone* hasn’t found the gumption to scrapbook anything in years. 
The Coach and I did a tour of the Capital building; it was gorgeous. It was all Texas; big, bold and big hair. Ok. I was kidding about the hair part. Not really.
Wait. While I’m at it, let me update my ‘Capital Buildings toured’ list:
1) Atlanta, GA
2) Austin, TX
Whew, glad I didn’t forget that.

We saw the backside of the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue; one of Coach’s favorite musicians. 
There were more food trucks than you can shake a stick at.
Take note; they don’t like it when you shake sticks at them.

Speaking of sticks, look at these large ones. You know I love a good tree.

 We saw several like this around town. I believe they are in the oak family? I might be wrong. Anyhoo…these are some good climbing trees…if only I had on my climbing shoes. 
Yeah, that was what stopped me from climbing…
Oh, inside the capital building. I’m not kidding when I say you can’t go an inch in Texas without coming across a Texas star. NOT.AN.INCH.

Even the chandeliers in the house of representatives chamber.
  Do you know that they meet once every few years? Sign me up
Stars in the bannisters.  NOT.an.INCH.
 Stars in the glass.
 Stars in the fence. Not.An.Inch!
At night, I even saw stars in the SKY! Texas rules. 
 I’m going to work on a patent and start producing suns for all my Florida people; Suns on glass, suns on car tags, suns in the sky.  
I’m going to be a thousand-aire.

  1. Well, you have me beat. My list of capital buildings toured is 0. Looks like the one in Austin was an interesting one for sure. A star among capital buildings. 😉 That tree is awesome!!

  2. Yep, not an inch, and proud of it! I love my state and her unique (six flags) and weird (Austin) history. Texas rules. And I love our capital too. I think it's a pretty amazing building. Love the tour. Glad you got stars in your eyes in our great state. Hope you visited the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum. It's very cool.
