We took a weekend trip to Green Bay, WI last year to celebrate our anniversary. This year we decided to go to Austin, TX. The traffic would have been too bad to leave on Friday after Lee got off work so we left early Saturday morning. We headed straight to Congress Street when we got to Austin. This street has fun shops and food trucks.

Of course there was a boot shop! There were rows and rows of boots with any design you could ever want.

We shared a red velvet cupcake from the Hey Cupcake! food truck. Yum!

I think the highlight of the trip for Lee was going to Mellow Johnny's. This is Lance Armstrong's bike shop.

Lee is in heaven :) The bikes on the wall above him are special bikes from Lance's career.

2005 Trek Madone SSLx Livestrong Bike
This machine was created especially for Lance in his final trip down the Champs Elyseés in the Yellow Jersey with the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team.

2000 U.S. Postal Service Team Issue Trek Madone
This bike was made to commemorate Lance Armstrong's 1999 Tour De France win, and it is number one of the 1,999 bikes that were produced for sale.

We ate at a restaurant called The Oasis Saturday night. It overlooks Lake Travis. There are four levels with mostly outside seating. It was a really cool restaurant and a beautiful night to eat lakeside. 

We saw this funny sign on the way out. I think this is how most Texans think.

Before we left on Sunday, we stopped at the University of Texas. We walked around for a little while and saw the Longhorns stadium.

Austin was a very cool city...we had a great time!
