For a few years now I have been attending the Father/Daughter dance with Mari, Lucia, and Rose. It did not happen this year, so we staged our own dance this evening at home. All credit goes to Susan (of course).
Boating went much better this time. It was a little cool, but the water was calmer. It took the little girls almost the whole trip to feel comfortable, but by the end they were having a blast.
Today we made a day trip to Waco to experience the Chip & Joanna Gaines Magnolia compound. We started a a tour of some of the houses they worked on in Fixer Upper and then went to Magnolia at the Silos to experience their store and so much more.
Today we tried to go boating on Lake Travis. It was windy and as soon as we made it out onto the main lake we could tell it was just too much. The only reason anyone is smiling in the pictures is because they were happy to be headed back to the dock. We are going to try again on Friday.
Today we headed into Austin to check out some of the sites. We were here a few years ago on our trip, but the weather was not great. Today was awesome – almost too hot.
We spent our first day in Austin getting settled in. We are actually staying in a townhome on Lake Travis, about 45 minutes from Austin.
We left bright and early this morning for Austin, a 14 hour drive from home.
