My mom got a plane ticket to our house for her birthday this year, and we had a great time! We headed down to Austin, and stayed in a hotel for a couple of days. One of the days we went to the capital building, and took the tour.
Standing in front of a statue of Sam Houston we found some of the lights have the
star with Texas spelled out in lights
We walked around downtown Austin for a bit and looked around
Paul got a new hat at Five Below. Paul is so lucky to have a grandma that will do anything for him - even play hot wheels for hours!
Sadly, grandma had to go home, but we had time to go have a picnic at Paul's school on her last day. Thanks grandma!
My friend Tiffany gave us tickets to a NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway. Since we had four tickets Paul got to invite his best friend to come with us.
Flyover before the race started
Watching the cars - preliminary laps. We thought it was loud then, then they started to go FAST! Then it was LOUD!
It was so fun! It made me wonder a little bit what we would do if we had a girl kid instead of a boyo..
We bought both boys a race car and after they watched the race for a little bit, they played on the bench. When there was a crash, they would pop up and watch until the urge to race their own cars was too strong!
The race was sponsored by Duck Dynasty so there were poster all over the place with Uncle Si. We couldn't resist!
