After our little Texas Tornadoes blew through Ansley's toy room, we packed up and headed to Tuesday Kids Night at the Nutty Brown Cafe.
If you haven't been there, it is an Austin gem! The expansive patio is shaded by huge Live Oaks and surrounds a gigantic bird cage which houses a large talking Parrot named Cheeto. On one side of the patio is a sandbox the size of our backyard for the kids to play in and on the other side there is a stage with live local musicians jamming out. Kids night (every Tuesday night) featurs silly children's songs and kids ate for 99 cents! It was a blast!
It Was A Good Thing We Got There Early -
We Cleared Out the High Chairs!The late night of dancing and getting down and very dirty in that sandbox did not deter this bunch from waking up with the sun the next morning. So we ate some cereal al fresco and planned another fun day.
Jenn suggested checking out the fire department down the street from their house to see if they'd let the kids get a close look at the fire engines. The fire fighters were so gracious and let us play in the garage for quite a while - everyone taking turns driving and riding in the back of the truck.

After the fire trucks, we went to play at the park. Then headed home for lunch & a nap. The pool was next on the list. Unfortunately there are no pictures at the pool - I haven't figured out how to relax enough while they are "swimming" to take photos around the water! It was a fun trip and we can't wait to do it again.
Jenn, thank you so very much for letting us crash your pad. I know we left you with a million messes and toys hidden in places you never thought of! You and Ansley are such sweet friends and we miss you terribly! Please come visit us soon!
