This afternoon when I called the manager at the Fairfield, he agreed to extend the discount for an extra couple days. So if you still need a room and haven’t reserved one yet, it’s not too late! Call the Fairfield today or tomorrow and you should probably still be okay. (Make sure to mention our names when you call, though, to make sure to get the rate.)

In other news, Austin’s spring is really beautiful so far! The bluebonnets are out in full force on every sunny hillside, and between them and the indian paintbrush and winecups and white prickly poppies and indian blankets and primrose, it looks pretty spectacular out here. The medians are overflowing with pretty colors!

Not only that, in our very own yard we found some primroses and a solitary bluebonnet(!) the other day. Unfortunately, the front lawn was getting pretty unsightly and so we had to mow down the primroses right along with the tall grass, but I got some nice photos before the primrose massacre. (The bluebonnet survived due to some help from Blake’s strategic mowing skills.)  It’s a pretty tiny bluebonnet, but it’s ours. =)
