lady bird

This weekend Ryno surprised me with a trip to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin. I went last year the weekend following the only rain we really saw that spring and it was pretty disappointing. This year was the complete opposite. The wildflowers bloomed early and they are everywhere. We had a lot of fun walking around the different gardens and checking out the native plants. The bluebonnets were by far my favorite, which is no surprise to those who know me. They have always been my favorite flower, and it was so fun getting to show them off to Ryno. Also, I may have forced him into a few photos with the bluebonnets...

Sunday we joined a friend downtown to catch the last of the music portion of SXSW. We found a couple of bars that still had band line-ups. We didn't realize it but the bands are on thirty minute rotations, which is helpful if you want to catch a lot of music in a few hours.
