Duck Bus or is it a Boat??

Posted: February 28, 2011 in Being Silly with Mom and Dad, General Information, Weekend Activities

We went on the Duck Bus Tour in downtown Austin yesterday, Sunday February 27, 2011. It was so much fun! We boarded the bus and received duck bill whistles. So after taking a few pictures for the scrapbook, we were ready to go. The bus driver started the tour with some fun music and got us all blowing our whistles. Then off we went – we drove around downtown Austin looking at all the pretty buildings. We drove around the capital and the UT campus. Downtown is really nice. Then our bus splashed into Lake Austin. We are now in a boat! The driver allowed the kids to each take a turn driving the bus/boat on the water. What a neat activity to do on such a pretty day! We ended the day at The Iron Cactus downtown and had some of the best fajitas I have ever had!

Boy o boy did we have a full weekend or what? Gotta love birthday weekends!

Not always easy to get a good family picture when you are taking it by yourself, but I think this one is pretty good

Now let's try to get a group picture with duck bill lips.
