There was Dog Mountain

The flowers are in bloom!  The hike up Dog Mountain that we went on earlier this week had as much of a killer ascent as I remembered.  It's so worth it.  Good thing we had a tasty breakfast Maurcie to sustain us.  And capping off the evening with a Monday night dinner special for two at Xico wasn't bad, either.  Oh, the Margaritas.


There was Austin



And it was awesome.  A five day trip to one of our favorite cities for Psych Fest/Levitation 2015.  Between concerts we managed to find a little bar we liked, a sandwich shop we loved, a neighborhood cafe that knocked our socks off, and some of the best barbecue we've ever eaten (there was some less than mediocre barbecue in there, too, lest you think all the meals were great).  We visited some of our favorite vintage shops in North Loop, had coffee at a spot that brought back lots of memories of trips we'd taken to Austin years ago, and were impressed by the art collection at the Blanton Museum.  We stayed up 'til 2 in the morning listening to some of our favorite bands, we woke up late and took naps to brace ourselves for three days of concerts, and had an all-around fabulous little vacation.
