Sunday Fun-day :)

I thought I'd share some photos from my birthday...

After breakfast with my family (followed by a nap for Alex and a giveaway winner post for me), Alex and I walked down to the Zilker Park Kite Festival! Luckily the entrance to Zilker Park is only about a mile from where we live (I LOVE our location!) - the traffic was craaazyyy. I think it's because of SXSW, but the festival was WAY busier than last year!
Our kite didn't actually fly. We think it must need a tail (whereabouts unknown). Next year! It was still fun to watch everyone else :-) And it was 80 degrees out!! Luckily Daily Juice was on the way home. I can't believe I'd never been there before! I had a Green Sunrise smoothie. A little of Alex's orange-mango smoothie helped dull the "earthy" aftertaste (hehe).
We also stopped by a property near our apartment to look at bluebonnets ^_^ They recently cleared the lot of tons of dead trees. I want to buy it!!! I'll build a small house on one side and a little park on the other :D It'll be beautiful. (In my dreams ;))
We got home and I just had to take a photo of the gorgeous trees in our courtyard. Hello, spring! Next we headed toward the Alamo Drafthouse to FINALLY get tickets to see Alice in Wonderland! Traffic was TERRIBLE, but I got to take some neat photos of downtown, which totally makes up for it! (Can you tell I love my city?)
Because it was absolutely insane down there, we decided to get tickets to see the movie Wednesday. But on the way out, I got to take a photo of the knit graffiti there! YAY! I don't want to incriminate myself, but I totally want to do this some day. Prettyyyy! (BTW: Have you heard of the "Midnight Knitter?!")
We ate at Serrano's (one of my favorite places) for dinner. Delicious! And then I let myself relax for the rest of the evening. I can't believe it had been so long since I'd let myself relax all day long! And spending the day with my hubby was the best decision I could have made :) I had a GREAT birthday!
