Family Fun Travel

last week’s travels

Three cities in one week defined last week’s travels. Late night bedtimes, cranky kids (even at 12 and 9), too much time strapped in a seatbelt, but it was all in the name of adventure, right? Right? That’s what I’m telling myself as we leave today on yet another adventure. As I was explaining to a six-year-old today about our travels and that these travels are actually for vacation, he said, “You guys go on vacation a lot!” While it may seem like our life is one big vacation, I assure you it is not. This is a nine day gift in the midst of lots of busyness that we are SO looking forward to.

A photo tour of last week…

gourdough chapstick

I wanted to visit every food truck in Austin. That’s impossible. Gourdough’s was so good Joshua tried to make some chocolate chapstick. 🙂

the capital

A view of the capital from a dirty mirror at Hope Outdoor Gallery.

Emma G in front of the capital building. Joshua did a school field trip here in 4th grade. Now that she’s in 4th grade, she only thought it fair to visit the capital.

While at the capital, why not sneak a peek of Governor Rick Perry?

Joshua and his Uncle Caleb at Salt Lick, one of the best barbecue places ever!

While we’re on the subject of travel, I’ve love for you to join me over at Petit Elefant where I’m sharing a little inspiring travel essay from Uganda. I know you guys have read lots about my Uganda adventures, but I’d be ever so grateful for the love over there! Thank you!
