Yeeee hawww! Goin' to Austin.
Fuel up! We can't leave town without a stop at the Starbucks on Arkansas and 360 in Arlington.
Mandy's sister Rachel, Mandy and Rachel's bugaboo, Elijah, at Rachel's pad in N. Austin
Maxin and relaxin
Nosin' in Rachel and Travis' DVD collection
Not quite sure what's going on here.
Rachel asked Elijah about his little girlfriend, to which he said "Nunyo bidness!"
Rachel and Christy figuring out the next day's road trip
Elijah's already wanting to go
Camping in the living room with AUNT MAAANNNDDEEE!
Awww, how sweet .... now go to bed!!
Rachel making some kicker breakfast
At HEB getting snacks for the day. OMG, this HEB is so nice, I'd move to Austin just for this HEB.
Crossing the Llano River (I think) to get to start the adventure
Elijah, what are you doing over there! Heh heh
Waiting out the rain underneath a tree at the bottom of the Rock.
AUNT MAAANNDDEEEE again!
Yeah yeah yeah, so you and your toddler son beat us up the hill. Shyadup!!
Elijah gettin messy
Rachel and the Rock
Let's go Aunt Mandy!
Go Mandy go!
... or not. Ha!
Gettin the heck out
These are the "oh look what a cute stone bench let's take pictures" pictures
We did a 180 just to take pictures of this. We're sick.
Mandy's so tiiiyaaad
Mandy likes them windmills
Rachel provided on-board enterainment by recounting each episode of 'Lost' and with impersonations from 'The Office'.
Scary thing is that Rachel was driving when we took this
Back seat buddies
A stop at Hondo's in Fredericksberg netted the biggest and baddest order of cheese fries, consumed with iced tea and lime at a picnic table outside. Yums.
On the road again
In front of the General Store, looking as touristy as possible.
Pretending to be local
The beautiful tree in front of the General Store
Don't they believe in sidewalks around here
Crossing the creek
Rachel's not smelling her pits, I promise.
Rachel brought her guns for protection
Elijah brought his beebee gun and a sandwich
Sellin' hats near the music stage
Yes, roosters and chickens roam free
Hot and sweaty ... and still hot!
Getting a good seat
Setting up the legendary stage
Mandy took a picture of a booboo that, quite frankly, looks MADE UP. Ha! ; )
Must ... hydrate ..
Appropriate plates for the outhouse
Mandy: "Man, that dude needs to do Atkins."
More fun at the General Sto'
At the frickin General Store again.
The citizens of Luckenbach: "Stop taking pictures in front of our store already."
Weee! Taking over Luckenback.
Lehhhhdeees of lehhhsure
This local kitty cat's civic service was to keep the roosters and chickens nervous.
The outdoor terlits
Elijah joins the local cat in making the chickens nervous
Apparently this is the spot in Luckenbach to hold a campfire, roast marshmallows, smoke doobies
If this tree is ever waylaid for a subdivision or strip mall, I'll give up on this world.
Time to get on the road again
D'oh! Not without one more picture with that General Store.
We left just as the town of Luckenbach started charging admission. Evenings are all about the live music.
Couldn't help just one more shameless tourist shot.
Hill Country roadside = beautiful
Last stop of the road trip: Wimberley, Texas! At the Corrall Theater, waiting for 'Ratatouille' to start at "dark-thirty."
Elijah just daring the country hook worms to bore into his bare feet ; )
This is so country and adorable
Mandy agrees with the adorability of this backwoods movie experience.
Shhh! Movie's on!
