AJ was SO excited to go to school. She woke up this morning at 4:30 AM and "just couldn't fall asleep all night!"

I just had lunch with her and she is indeed having a wonderful time and loves her teacher. Her only regret is not getting a couple of her best friends in her class...oh well, good opportunity to make new ones.

Emma Long Park

A little slice of heaven. The Cappels bring us here on the boat to dock and swim, but this time we drove in. Still a perfect spot to float, chill, and enjoy the beautiful view...

Hamilton Pool

My mom is visiting and Friday we went to Hamilton Pool... by far one of the coolest places we have visited in the Austin area. It is essentially a huge grotto that was formed when an underground cave collapsed thousands of years ago, leaving a half dome-shaped ledge that covers much of the pool. The pool is filled by a steady stream of water which falls to the rocks and water below. The pool leads into a brook that eventually feeds into the Pedernales River.
