Doin' it my way.

At this point, we’ve really started to explore Austin, and a big part of that is its food culture (which, sadly, so far we’ve only found to be so-so. We’re big home cooks though so that could be part of it).
This wild boar pate tasted like bologna. :\
Evan had beef tenderloin, which was rockin’.
I had sea bass. It tasted like cafeteria food at an old folks home.
Sweating into a puddle at the Hot Sauce Festival. Who has a festival in AUGUST in the south? And what dumb fools actually show up?
Central Market, HEB’s competitor to Whole Foods, is such a gorgeous grocery store!
At Kerbey Lane Cafe, eating something covered with queso. Yes, queso, as in, liquid cheese product prolly made with lots of Velveeta. Guess its a Southern thing–I grew up on it, but Evan is still pretty debious about it. I say yum!
Evan’s sis Diane, Evan, Meredith, and Jordan @ Kerbey Lane
At Barton Springs Pool–freshwater spring-fed pool that’s been a public park since the 1930s or something like that. Has a natural bottom and lots of eel grass at one end that act as a filter, which is a little spooky when your feet graze against it!
Diane with Hunter in mid-spring at Red Bud Isle, a little island in the middle of Ladybird Lake/Town Lake/Colorado River that’s an off-leash dog park.
Loved the light on this one of Diane reading. She and Kirsten and her fiance Maynard are coming in March, sooo excited!!!
At P. Terry’s, local burger place reminiscent of In N Out burger, but not as good. We recently discovered Hat Creek Burger Co., only a couple minutes from our house, which possibly has one of the best burgers I’ve ever eaten.
I took a couple art classes in the fall. One of them was at AMOA’s Laguna Gloria campus, which is an old villa on a lake w/a bunch of studios around it and peacocks strolling lazily around. Beautiful!
Inside the studio
Have also been dropping in at the open figure-drawing studios.
And what would living in Austin be without a little live music?
