No house tour to share today- my brother has been in town for just under a week so it’s been all play and no blog work for me. I have lots of photos to share from his visit, though!
Some background for you- I am the oldest sibling, my brother Christopher is the middle, and my sister Sarah is the youngest. We are super close and hate having Christopher so far away in Colorado, but love that he is so happy there. It doesn’t hurt that it’s a great place to visit.
Chris got in town last Thursday and the first thing we did was take him to eat the best pad thai on God’s green earth at sway. (Note: we are constantly trying to impress Chris with all of the best food/activities/etc that Austin has to offer in an attempt to lure him here. He has to gently remind us that there are no mountains/snow to be found. But I believe that every visit inches him closer and closer to moving here, mountains or not.)
The next day, Chris and Sarah took Finn to the dog park while I was at work. Christopher has an actual big boy camera and took some amazing pictures while they were there. Reallllly puts the iPhone to shame. Love that my siblings are so great to my dog and LOVE that I got some awesome pictures out of his visit.
That night we hung out at the casa, fed Chris the obligatory meal of Torchy’s tacos and queso, and then headed to the east side to hang at the The White Horse. After some beers we were brave enough to step out on the dance floor and do some two-stepping. Bet they don’t have that in Colorado, do they?? They probably do, actually. hmmph.
The three of us are kind of terrible at remembering to take pictures together- this is the only one we have from the weekend. Unfortunately I’m looking very squinty-eyed and just HAPPEN to be holding two beers. I promise the two things are unrelated. Chris and Sarah look so cute that I couldn’t help but share the photo.
After White Horse and a short but meaningful hour spent on 6th street, it was time to head home. The rest of the weekend was spent eating Don Juan’s and getting handshakes from Juan himself, hiking the greenbelt, hitting up the dog park, taking in the view at Mt. Bonnell, and enjoying this incredible weather on gorgeous patios. I said bye to Chris this morning and as usual, got a little teary eyed. I hate to see him go! Until next time, Chrissafer.
What do yall do for fun with your siblings? Better yet, have any of you successfully lured your siblings to live in the same city as you? If so, please contact me with an actionable plan. Thanks in advance. 🙂
