DESTINATION: Austin, Texas

This was our first road trip together.  We went down to Austin, Texas, for the weekend and to visit G-man's friends.  G-man introduced me to Maria's Taco Express and the al pastor taco and the Texas Chili Parlor.....yummy! He also showed me some of the historical sights around Austin including The Treaty Oak, where Stephen F. Austin signed a treaty between the Angleos and the Indians, and the Texas State Capital Building.  I love Texas history!
