February Edition

February 15, 2012

Operation Love Austin: February.  Our plans changed for February, we were planning to get tickets and go to Wicked and then I looked into prices and yikes, there was no way I was going to spend $150 for the worst tickets in the house and they went up a lot from there.  Our amazing realtor read my Operation Love Austin post and gifted us Austin Duck Tour tickets, so our February event was free.  We went on Saturday and let me tell you it was CHILLY.  Despite it being only like 55 it was packed and they had 2 full “buses” of people.  We got through the whole land tour and as we are driving down the road to get in the water the bus started smoking and anti-freeze starts pouring down the aisle.  The driver says, “oh hey I’ll just pull in right here,” and then it dies, right there in the road.  Luckily we weren’t in the water yet and within 10 minutes a new bus arrived to continue the tour.  It was really interesting to hear about the history of the city and a fun thing to do on a Saturday afternoon.  Andrew is pretty much the last in line for fun, well silly fun, and basically refused to participate in any of the duck whistle parts of the tour, I can’t totally blame him, he gets it from his dad!  Here are a couple terrible pictures from our excursion:

What’s the plan for March, not sure yet.  I really want to go to the Post Secret SXSW show, but I know it will be insane since you can’t buy tickets.  Also that is not really Austin.  We should try to hit up something SXSW since that is totally a “hip” thing to do, maybe we’ll catch a music show of some kind.  You’ll just have to check back and see.
