Austin Zoo

Isaac and Liesl really enjoyed visiting the Austin zoo today.  The weather was nice and the animals were pretty active.  The tigers were having an especially good time playing with empty beer kegs in their pool.  Its funny that both tigers and toddlers seem to enjoy playing with things not intended as toys.  More pictures from the zoo trip are in the a few fall pictures album.

The Big Three-Zero

It was an eventful birthday marked by tragedy on campus, but also by a beautiful morning at McKinney Falls State Park and a pleasant afternoon around the house.
