Two Days in Austin

We just returned this afternoon from 2 1/2 days in Austin. My husband had a Theological Conference to attend and I arranged someone to cover my Monday Lab and Tuesday Class. It was nice to get away...we did leave our 16 yo home by himself for the first time. I was a bit nervous, but he appears to have gotten to school on time every day, and fed all the animals, and left the house neat and tidy. We stayed in an Omni Hotel. It was really nice, and we had complementary beverage service in the morning (coffee and juice). It rained all day Tuesday which was a drag. We didn't venture outside at all. We had planned on going on a tour of the new Concordia University campus, but decided to eat at the hotel and retire early. Allan sent me for a massage Tuesday afternoon, which was a wonderful treat. I felt very pampered. We slept late both days (he might have missed some of the conference - lol) We stopped at the outlet mall on the way home and picked up a few things. It was a very relaxing couple of days. It's always nice to get home though.

How fun for you! Dave & I leave Saturday for our trip to Yosemite. Laura who will be 20 next month will be in charge of OUR 16 year old son Charles. Poor kid, she really runs the roost with an iron claw! Ha Ha!

I'm envious! Sounds like a nice little mini-getaway:)
