You can't go to Austin without visiting The Texas State Capitol building! Isn't it pretty?

It's taller than the Capitol in Washington, D.C. (You know Texans, they won't be outdone by anyone!)

It was so crowded on the day we visited, I gave up trying to take pictures of the rooms. I focused on details instead. There are lots of Texas stars everywhere!

The chandeliers in the Senate Chamber were some of the first electric light fixtures in the U.S. The light bulbs spell "TEXAS."

Even the chairs in the Senate Chamber have stars!

I can see why this bride chose the Capitol for her portraits--it's a beautiful setting.

This gorgeous old live oak is in the park outside the Capitol. We saw lots of amazing trees in Houston and Austin.

It's already hot here in TX, but it's nice to see lots of green trees and flowers blooming. We hear that spring has finally sprung back home, too.

Hope y'all are having fun in your neck-o-the-woods!

Looks like a great field trip. i really like the light bulbs that spell out Texas, a bit over the top but that is what would you expect.

I chuckled when I read that your tadpole is still a tadpole:) Wonder what kind of frog it is? I read it takes 12 weeks for the full transformation but our frogs did it in less than 8 weeks:) Hang in there it has to change eventually;)
