Our third day we drove up to Austin and had dinner at the Hula Hut. The restaurant is on the lake and is a mixture of Hawaiian and Tex-Mex. The food was yummy and I loved their vintage covered chairs.
Later that evening we checked into our hotel and then Dad, K, and I walked a block down to the state capitol. The House was still meeting so we were allowed to go inside and check it out. We enjoyed looking around inside, watching the House discuss things, and walking around the beautiful monuments outside. Everything is bigger in Texas.
