Austin trip

Last weekend, we went to Austin for Aunt Emily's wedding.  She and Greg picked a gorgeous setting at Mayfield Park.

The park was filled with peacocks that added a lot of color (and some timely placed noises) to the event.

Waiting on Congressional Bridge to see the nightly departure of 1.5 million bats.  Unfortunately, they didn't really cooperate (they usually give the best performances starting in May)

At the Zilker Park botanical gardens

Checking out the turtles in the Japanese garden pond
Enjoying the butterfly garden

The gardens were filled with really neat walkways, bridges, pools, etc.  This bridge leads to a tiny waterfall found on the other side of a stepping stone pathway across water.  Claire made it across the steps but decided to see if she could balance on some small (wet) rocks on the other side.  She slipped and fell with one leg/side in the stinky (poopy smelling) water.  Needless to say, this was the last picture we took before heading back to the car.
