After we said our goodbyes we hit the road again and headed for Austin, Texas to meet up with Gus's Uncle Rob and Aunt Ann. They are the raddest people ever! The first night we arrived they took us to the first beer pub co-op! Super awesome. The beers we had were delicious. I could tell right away that Austin was gonna be a great time. We spent two nights with them and their sweet border collies. I've been really good about getting photos of everyone but somehow we never got around to taking one of Rob and Ann. Next time for sure! I did get a pic of one of their sweet collies though.

|This is the wall inside a bathroom in Austin. I love how they took a wine bottle and stuck in the wall. Super creative.|
|Austin knows whats up! I love it when towns have vintage guides. YES!|
|This store was super fun... it's like an antique store but with all the coolest things you could ever imagine.|
On our last night with them, they mentioned the Alamo which is a movie theater that you can drink beer in and have food. I have heard about these kind of movie theaters but have never been to one so that was a great treat. We saw "The Artist" which is a silent film, and I have to say, it was pretty awesome to experience it in the way we did. Sipping great beer and munchin on a yummy salad and pizza. Delish!
The next day we headed across town to reunite with my friend Autumn. We've been friends for about 5 years. We met on an organic farm in Hawaii and have been friends ever since. It was super great to catch up with her and see her super cute house. We went out to dinner and after she took us to the "High Ball" which is absolutely incredible in my opinion. It's a bowling alley but not just any bowling alley. A *vintage* bowling alley complete with all the fixings! We watched black and white clips of synchronized swimmers on the screens above our lanes and lounged in the super stylish furniture. They even have old score boards. So awesome! We had the best time. It's always hard to say goodbye to good friends but I know I'll be paying Autumn another visit soon.

On our way out of town we needed to restock up on groceries and so we headed to Whole Foods. Apparently it was first started in Austin. As soon as we walked in, we couldn't believe the array of selection in every corner. Not to mention the many different food bars and beer stations. Crazy! They even had a section devoted to chocolate. Equipped with a chocolate fountain. yum. We couldn't resist a few truffles for the road. and next stop: Sedona, Arizona
