Happy Easter

A sang with the choir at two services. On the altar were the many lilies that were bought by members of the congregation. We bought one in W's memory and one in the memory of B's mother. The youth choir sang the Hallelujah chorus at the end, and it was a great service. Even twice.

I am feeling a little sick. I CANNOT get sick next week, because I am going to Austin for a convention.

Must. stay. well.


Oh, I'm sure that will work.

We might be going to Austin sometime in a couple of weeks too. I don't know what there is to do there but we'll be visiting my mom near San Antonio and Sara wants to go to Austin to do some business things. Have you been there before, what is it like and what can we do there?

Saw this and couldn't help but respond!
Austin is amazing...so much to do! I went to school just north of there, and loved every minute of it.

If you like outdoorsy activities, there's Zilker Park and Town Lake. There's also Mount Bonnell, which gives a gorgeous view of the city.

Seeing the Congress Street Bridge Bats is a neat thing too because at night they tend to flock and it's actually a neat thing to watch.

The LBJ Presidential Library is also there, down at UT, and if you haven't been there, it's got a great museum and collection.

There are a lot of live music venues and bars and such down on 6th street, and really good restaurants everywhere you go.

You and B should go sometime. It's absolutely wonderful.

J and I are going to move down there in a couple of years. I'm going to do what Allen hired me to do and then try to get hired at TEA.

Then I'll have an excuse to move down there again. :)
