We went on a field trip yesterday. It was pretty spontaneous. We had been thinking about it, but the decision to actually go was last minute. A dear friend who lives in the Houston area was in Austin, escaping the worst of the storm. Their area was pretty hard hit, but they were fortunate enough to not sustain any serious damage to their home. They were able to go back last evening to a house in good shape and they even had electricity!
They decided that before they left, they wanted to go hang out at Zilker Park. This is a great, public, FREE park with oodles of things to do and see. A major road goes right through the park, though, so it took a little doing to find the right section of the park, but we did it. It was so nice to get together with Annette and her family.
Here are some photos!
Of course, I took pictures of both families, but won’t post their pics here without permission. It was a lovely time and I cannot wait to go back to Zilker Park.
