Tourist in Town

When’s the last time you toured ATX? We did a three-day Staycation last year over July 4th Weekend last year, SO FUN!

First up DKR Memorial Stadium: I’m pretty sure now that Superman missed his life calling- He was totally comfortable in the UT PRESS BOX!
We got to run (walk) through the tunnel onto the field… no smoke coming out like on gameday, but it was so hot I had steam coming off of me, that counts, right?
Seriously, how do the the players practice there?… it was solar-flare hot.

Next was cooling off at the LBJ Library (July 4th is a FREE day, BTW)
Inspiring! Took our time to look, read, listen to everything … I was more than a little sad when I realized that too many of his ideas and goals were still ideas and goals… that we haven’t accomplished more in the civil rights arena since his Presidency…. anyway; IT IS a beautiful place – go!

Texas Memorial Museum on UT Campus was so cool! I used to come here every year as an Elementary Student, it has changed a lot, and not too much. Very small, elegant, informative. Best of all Superman got a chance to show off his skills 🙂

From High-brow to Hot Rods. We were not dazed and confused by the great Rock-a-billy music, cool-cat cars and old-style burgers. Mathew M was not there, but plenty of other fun people were.
Top. Notch. alright alright alright.

OF course we went to new favorites and old favorites to grub. 
​Casey’s New Orleans Snowballs, ALWAYS A TREAT!! Even better that day because of the awesome gathering of mature-lesbians-in-tutus who had just arrived from Barton Springs, they were so fun to hang out with!
Three days of laughs, fun, lots of walking and sweating and food. #bestvacationever?
Amy Loves Austin!
