I had the chance to run away for a few days and visit my sister in Austin, Texas. An easy flight. some good food, great pictures and special people, it was a perfect getaway.

My sister and I got to see one the happiest dogs I have ever met at The Barton Springs, he would just enjoy nothing more to swim upstream. To the proud dog owner who asked for pictures, just contact me and I will get you the rest of photographs of your wonderful dog.

3 of my favorite photos from the trip, the Texas Capitol Building in Austin, Texas.

The view directly above you, in the middle of the rotunda of the capitol building.

The Medallion in the floor at the center of the rotunda, I consider myself a history buff, but I had no idea of the depth of the rich history Texas has. Just reading some the plaques and hearing what my sister has learned, as I walked around the capitol building really gave me an insight into what Texas has been through. Again, just a completely perfect few days, and big thanks to my sister and her husband for being such gracious hosts!

Thank you for sharing!
