Sunday in Austin

On Sunday morning we got up and Kevin and I went walking on the trail behind his Uncle's house.  It is a long greenway type trail along the creek.  Tons of mountain bikers, runners and walkers.  The houses up on the cliffs are gorgeous and rumor has it that Sandra Bullock used to live a few doors down.
Then we went to the famous Threadgill's for their Sunday Gospel Brunch.  Let me tell yall - this group broke it down.  They were great!
We all decided we should have taken the picture before brunch haha!
Then we went for a walk on South Congress Street.  We went into several of the shops and checked things out.  Allen Boots seriously had the most amazing selection of cowboy boots.  Of course the pair I picked out were $899. 
Well hellooooooo BF!!!!  Someone looks HOT in a cowboy hat!!!!
Later that day, we had some peach margaritas then went to Ginny's Little Longhorn Saloon to watch the Dale Watson Band.  Down home country.
Then we went to Artz Ribs for the top 10 best ribs in America.  We even got to meet Art (it is called Artz because his wife's first name starts with a Z).  We listened to a great band called The Texas Swing Kings.
Afterward we headed to the Continental Club.  We had missed most of the band we wanted to see so we elected to go to Saxon Pub for this band who played songs by Stephen Bruton.
We bought a CD and got it signed by the band members and a picture with the lead singer who had SO MUCH energy.  His name is Malford Milligan.
Then we headed back to the Continental Club for Haybale.  The guitarist on the left was Merle Haggard's for some time.
The keyboarder on the far right was Johnny Cash's.  Needless to say, they were outstanding.
Then we ended the night around midnight - whew long day!  As you can see, we really did get all the inside scoop from Chris and Sharon!
