Day 3: Austin, TX

We had such a great "spontaneous" adventure at the McDonald Observatory that on our drive from Van Horn to Austin we basically became "Historical Marker Chasers". No, not NEARLY as exciting as Storm-chasers. Our biggest bust added about 30 minutes to our trip and was so insignificant that there wasn't even a picture to take. We found this view on that detour, which I thought was pretty cool:



Timothy also pottied outside for the first time! This picture was taken right after he did it, and I seriously think he felt a little more grown up! I did take a picture of the actual act (behind that giant cactus right there), but I'll keep that embarrassment off of the world wide web!

On Day 3 we made it to our first stop to see people we love! We had a wonderful time with Josh, Sheila, Zoe, and Ben. Did I mention we had a wonderful time? It was so great! We went swimming that night at the coolest pool ever! The kids loved it so much we went again the next morning. I have pics, but I took those on Day 4...

Wow! He made it almost to 5 before going outside?! It's cracking me up that you took pictures of the bush! It's just one of the many reasons I carry a small bottle of GermX with me.

About day 2, I would worry more about the sticker than the makeup myself!
