Our first stop was to see Cara and her babies.
|One of the few pix of Addie. She was too busy|
to pose for photographs on this day!
Later we headed downtown to see the bats at Congress Avenue bridge! While down there, we visited the new Toy Joy location and had dinner at Austin Java. Then we were off to the bridge.
Here they come!
If you've never seen Austin's bats, you MUST. May to November is the best time to see them. They leave their bridge home typically 30 minutes before sunset and head out for a night of foraging.
Since it's pretty dark, it's hard to get decent photos. That's why you need to GO. See for yourself. You just can't imagine how it sounds and feels to have thousands of bats circling under your feet.
That black smoke above the trees? Not smoke.
Before heading back to our car, we enjoyed the gorgeous sunset and our views of Austin in the early evening.
But our day didn't end there! We also went to Pinballz, our favorite arcade, where the girls played several video games and this old-school bowling game.
We topped off our evening with some Amy's Ice Cream and a visit to the Arboretum cows.
Such a fun day! But our adventures in Austin would continue...
