Summer Vacation - Part 1 - Austin

This year, my summer vacation was mostly spent seeing family in Texas before I start school this fall.  The impending stress of school full-time and work full-time means I don't know when I'll have the opportunity to see everyone again.  My 93 year old grandmother lives in Austin and since Michael was with me, we took some time to explore downtown before seeing my aunt and my cousin's baby in New Braunfels. We didn't catch some of the best parts of the city, but we did get to spend some time around the University of Texas.
