Texas Vacation - Austin

Two of our favorite shows on TV are Diners, Drive-ins and Dives on the Food Network and Man v. Food on the Travel Channel. Right before our vacation we watched Man v Food about Austin and so I needed to go and try out Round Rock Donuts and Salt Lick. (We also went to Dough Pizzeria in San Antonio, which was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives)

The Original Salt Lick located out in the country. Far out in the country.

John is currently traveling to Austin each week and so we joined him one night before heading to our final destination in San Antonio. We headed down to Congress bridge to watch (and listen to) the bats come out at twilight.

The Bell Tower was directly across the street from our hotel.

The State Capitol

The next day we rented a ski boat on Lake Travis. The girls had a blast on the tube and could have been out there for hours! The boys...not so much. Both John and Jenny got out on skis. It was a lot of fun.

We ate at Berryhill's Baja Cantina, a favorite restaurant of ours from Houston. It has fantastic fish tacos.

What is the history of the Bell Tower? Did you drive down and pick John up from work? A very cool vacation in a very "hot" place. The kids are getting so big and at first glance Colin looked to be as tall as Jenny.

so who was driving the boat with all the waves washing over the tube? Any place with water is pretty fun with the kids.
