Here is part two of the exciting Birthday Extravaganza! With more pictures!!!!!
I don’t have as many pictures from Friday, because there was more eating and less photographing! Here are some things!
We started off at Kerbey Lane for breakfast, where I had peach-pecan pancakes. These were thick, light, fluffy, delicious pancakes! Nom!
Then, Katie took me to Barton Springs! She had explained Barton Springs to me on AIM before I got there, and told me to bring a bathing suit (which was a feat for me, and the only one I had was letting quite a bit of boobage spill out, but hey. Whatever she explained, I was not prepared for this place, which was kind of awesome and amazing.
It is half pool! It is half lake! It is a spring-fed swimming pool with seaweed on the bottom! CRAZY STUFF. It was also super cold and I kept getting seaweed in my hair which made me feel like a mermaid. Anyway, I also discovered that my upper body strength is not what it was. Man, I am a wussy. I couldn’t really tread water for very long, so I kind of hung around at the edge for a lot of the time, but it was still awesome A+ would swim again.
Then we went out for ice cream, but I totally forgot to take pictures of that. Boo. I thought I had taken a picture! Apparently not. And we went back to Katie’s and chilled with Rufus and Mishka and watched a bunch of Animaniacs, which was awesome, because I haven’t seen it since it was on the television box!
I ate the other candy that I bought at Big Top:
It’s called a Maple Bun! It was all maple flavored and peanutty, and much more delicious than the Idaho Spud. Win!
Then we got all dressed up and went downtown. There is a building which Katie told me the name of, but which I promptly forgot because she told me someone told her it looked like Totoro.
Then we went to a lovely restaurant called Peche, which was an absolutely divine bar. They had a really nice cocktail selection, plus absinthe fountains and a selection of close to twenty absinthes (17, I believe) to choose from. Katie got absinthe the traditional way; I got an absinthe cocktail. After a very nice whiskey drink. And the lovely bartender gave me two drinks for my birthday! We got dinner too– I got an absolutely scrumptious salad with sweetbreads and boudin and a beautiful runny egg on top. SO GOOD. Katie’s friend Clare met up with us, too, and she was awesome!
We went home and to bed pretty early– it was a long day and Saturday was going to be another one!
I also posted a new post on how to make simple syrups out of candy! Read it here!
