Saturday we made a day trip to Austin because I have been wanting to go there and check it out. We thought we planned good because we checked to make sure that Texas wasn't playing a home game. Well, we didn't plan good at all because when we were headed to the botanical gardens we saw tons and tons of people heading that way too. Apparently yesterday was Austin City Limits (a HUGE outdoor music festival). So, no botanical gardens for us.
We did stop in Cabela's and check out the dead animals.
Then we hit the Austin Zoo. Their zoo is all rescued animals and is more of a sanctuary so it wasn't very big, but we still enjoyed checking it out.
And of all the days for it to rain, it drizzled on us heading in. I am not complaining though because this state needs some serious rain!
Cole and I loved the lions. Probably because we just saw the Lion King the night before! We were able to see all the animals up close which was cool. We had alot better view than at most zoos.
