We rented this cute cottage for a week in SoCo, a super cool neighborhood in South Austin.
Here are some of the sights from the neighborhood.
Within walking distance from our house their were not one, but two cupcake shops.
Sugar Mamas, which was my favorite...
..and Hey Cupcake. Here is a cupcake Abe ordered, with a shot of whip cream injected into it upon request.
Torchy's Tacos had the best Baja Shrimp Tacos, we went here three times.
The Broken Spoke = famous.
We drove out of town to go to The Salt Lick, super amazing bbq.
For our actual anniversary we went to Artz Rib House, for some more super amazing bbq.
We went to The Austin Zoo, which I have to say is the best Zoo I have ever been to. It's a non-profit that houses rescued animals. Definitely check it out if you are in the area - it's only $8 to get in.
There were peacocks and chickens just cruising around everywhere.
Abe sketches a pig.
Abe talked to Freddy the gray parrot - he said hello and meowed.
We have arrived home to a blizzard here in Maine. High of 72 today in Austin...
