On Sunday we were headed to San Antonio by way of Austin, so we spent a brief five hours in Austin. We headed straight to lunch at Shake Shack (because if there’s a Shake Shack near me, I’m going to it):
And then headed to the Capital building. This was a great choice because 1. It’s free and 2. There’s huge (not working obviously) cannons outside. Oh and 3. Lots of stairs to wear the kids out.
They also have several really cool libraries that weren’t open when we were there (Sunday) but I think they are open during the week:
After the Capital we headed to Barton Creek Square Mall because the boys requested to go to a Lego Store…
And I found nothing at Nordstrom despite my best efforts…
And we left at four and arrived in San Antonio in time for dinner!
Other fun spots that we had on our potential Austin list were…
Texas History Museum
Any of the many hiking trails
