Austin, Texas

I went to Austin over the weekend and had some weird fun. Ya know they say to "Keep Austin Weird" and Kendra and I saw some sights. We went to join the German class from the high school and cheer them on for the State contest at UT. The folkdancing kids placed 6th but the school got 3rd in overall Sweepstakes for small schools. Nick got 1st place for his poetry reading which is AWESOME!
Nick getting his medal for 1st place.
These are the kids that went to the competition. German class is a BIG deal here in Whitney. The teachers are very motivating and encouraging.
Kendra snapped this photo of us in our hotel elevator. She's so creative when it comes to photography.
Is it weird that all of these guys were standing looking at traffic with their hands in their pockets...we thought it was. lol
Where do you find GIANT BANANAS? Austin!

The fountain with the clock tower in the background at University of Texas. Kendra and I also went shopping and sightseeing and more shopping at IKEA but will post on that later! always fun with aunt kadra louise
