We had an action-packed visit with my brother and his family this past weekend. We rode the Metrorail train to downtown Austin on Saturday. Saturday was probably one of the craziest, busiest days in downtown Austin with the SXSW music festival, St. Patrick's Day and Spring Break all falling on the same day. So, it may have not been the easiest day to take the little ones. But, I think the boys got a kick out of riding the train and enjoying some pizza at Homeslice.
The rest of the weekend involved going to fun parks, visiting a bouncy house with a foam pit, doing lots of shopping at two outlet malls and IKEA and eating delicious meals together.
|The boys had fun playing outside in our backyard.|

|They really enjoyed jumping from this.|
|And, of course, boys love their cars!|
We were all very entertained by Luke and his cousin, Traber. Those two are a hoot. They are only a month apart in age and they play so well together. It was fun to watch them play and have conversations. I was quite surprised at how polite they were with each other, using "please", "thank you", "you're welcome" and "I'm Sorry".
We captured some video this weekend of them playing together. I put together a couple of clips that I thought were cute:
Lastly, while the boys were playing, we also captured a couple of cute pictures of Abbey in a new chair that we scored at the Pottery Barn Outlet this weekend:
