Austin Tx- day one

My niece, Elizabeth, was getting married in Austin Tx on the 7th of August. Steve, Delaney and I attended, but we left Tyler and Maura home. Tyler was getting ready for college and working. Maura had Band camp and a carboard boat race (for charity) she had been planning for months... and work.

So, we drove to Waco and visited with Steve's brother and his wife, Susie and their daughter, Abby. Abby and Delaney are about 3 months apart and so they get along like a house on fire. This year's plot was to move there so they could be together all the time... or have Delaney just go and live with them. LOL! Anyway, I got to see Susie's big cactus sculpture from horseshoes and her howling coyote. Of course, they were fabulous hosts. Steve toured the plant Joe manages while I was drinking coffee and trying to wake up.

The next day, we traveled to Austin and did a few things in Austin. We toured SOCO and had lunch at the Whole foods flagship store (yum) and then it was time to head back to meet up for the family dinner.

I don't remember the name of the place, but we ate in the Pope room. It is a round room with a large round table and a huge lazy susan in the center with a bust of the pope in a glass case in the center. The rest of the room was filled with various photos of the pope. We couldn't get a photo of everyone there, so Steve came up with the idea of doing a video and using the lazy susan to show everyone. It's fun.
