Last Saturday we took Lil' D on a lovely "Austin" day. We started our day at the AT&T Conference Center for Austin Space Day. Apparently, Austin has plans to build a planetarium. It was a great event for elementary school aged kids. There were instructions on how to make a homemade comet.
There was also a mobile planetarium and a station where you could walk across non-Newtonian fluid!
Lil' D rode in the Ergo carrier for the first time. He was relatively happy despite the heat.
Then we headed to Central Market for lunch where Lil' D sat in his own chair for the FIRST time!
He also ate carrots for the first time and loved them! Then we visited the Blanton Museum.
These are the dorms I lived in my freshman year. Yes, they look like a prison. The Blanton is located on land that used to be a parking lot (where some friends may or may not have gotten parking tickets in---if the lot no longer exists, neither should your unpaid parking tickets, right?).
Nicholas and Lil' D with the Capitol Building and the Frost Bank Building in the background (click on it because it is a really good picture!).
Then we visited the LBJ Library. This is a picture of my favorite fountain at UT that is obviously not on because we are in a severe drought! Then we visited the mega-Whole Foods. It was insanely busy on a Saturday late afternoon. Lil' D was amazing and we were all beat!
