austin road trip: day 1

2012 May 19

thought you weren’t going to hear from us until we got back to Houston, but SURPRISE you’re getting an early update. so here is a recap of our day 1 road trip to austin,tx. we left from my house around 2:00 pm. (my mom took these pictures while we packed up the car, she made mega fun of my oxford shoes. said it looked like we were going to a klezmer clogging festival. wahh, meanie mom)

MAKENZIE’S NOTE: ALL I CAN SEE IN THIS PICTURE IS MY GIANT ZIT.

we drove up I-10, and i’m proud to say i drove the speed limit the whole way (random fact: i don’t think i’ve ever driven more than 70 mph, i don’t get any sort of thrill from going fast). we exited Lockhart, where we’re staying for the weekend.

MAKENZIE’S NOTE: DENA DRIVES REALLY SLOW. AND NEVER CHANGES LANES.

pit stop bathroom break and photo shoot.

big plastic homemade fish. LOVE downtown lockhart

MAKENZIE’S NOTE: DENA WANTED THE FISH ALL TO HERSELF. I MADE HER TAKE A PICTURE OF ME IN FRONT OF IT TOO.

what you can’t tell from these photos: mak twisted her ankle and fell right after i took this picture. but i don’t understand why ? whats wrong with jumping in grass in flatforms ?

what you can’t tell from these pictures of me: i literally peed in my underware from laughing SO hard.

MAKENZIE’S NOTE: DENA IS ACTUALLY JESUS

too early for dinner, but too late to go do anything real. so, headed over to the mall-mart (term for walmart my aunt made up “because it has everything you could ever find in a mall”)¬†to do what small-town kids do for fun.

we hit the jack-pot in the baby doll aisle.

baby abuelita? what, baby spanish granparents?

we finished up the night with a few games of mexican train dominoes. then we spent a good 15 minutes proving that by using all the dominoes, one can make a matched loop every freakin’ time. get it? it totally blew my mind, and makenzie swore it was a “discrepant¬†event” (get it UST cohort ?)

up next: ice cream and Twin Peaks/ United States of Tara on netflix

.dena. & .makenzie.

    Glad to know you were wearing underwear when that giant fish was swallowing you, even if you did pee in them later.
