|Right after leaving the train. Ready for our day!|
|We did a little programming using fun, interactive toys.|
|We played with lots of hands-on learning toys.|
Also, that same day was "NASA Day" at the Texas Capitol. So, after SXSW-edu we grabbed some delicious pizza at Backspace and then walked to the Capitol to check out NASA Day.
|It was really dark in the room, but managed to snap a couple of photos of Luke and Abbey in space suits.|
It was a long fun day, and actually very educational! And then we had our first set of visitors from Oklahoma. My sister, Holly, and her family came to stay with us for a few days. We took them to the Thinkery, SXSW Create (my favorite SXSW event), some of our favorite restaurants, some fun hikes, to the Austin Nature and Science Center and to go on a boat bat watching cruise. Here are some photos from some of our fun and the memories we captured with them.
|We ran into friends while there. Here is Abbey and her good friend, Bella.|
|Drew looked hilarious!|
|My sister and I.|
|The lego creations there were awesome.|
|The kids loved crossing the creek|
|The girls danced.|
|We waited in line for face painting. This was the girls' before photo.|
|And here is the after photo: a purple tiger, a rainbow butterfly and a pink kitty.|
We played lazer tag in our yard:
We took them to one of our favorite playgrounds:
It was such a fun spring break! We love having visitors. Now, it is back to all our normal routines for us!
