After hitting the candy store, we went across the street to check out the food trucks. I learned that about 5 years ago there were about 80 food trucks in Austin. And now there are about 2000!! Holy food trucks galore!
“We don’t say ‘Fried,’ we say ‘DEEP Saute’.”
I was just in search of one food truck. The Hey Cupcake! food truck!!
I ordered the Pumpkinator….of course!
It was delicious. It’s a good thing I’m not in close proximity to this food truck on a daily basis (yet!).
My uncle got a red velvet cupcake. My aunt & cousin split a Michael Jackson. I had a bit of the Michael Jackson and it was SOoooooooo good. That chocolate cupcake was the moist-est cupcake ever. I’d order that over the Pumpkinator next time .
After devouring our cupcakes, we went to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum.
These dang stars are EVERYWHERE in Texas. I told my aunt that if (when!) I move to Austin, I refuse to own one of these stars.
It’s hard to take good pictures when you’re not allowed to take pictures. 😉 Everywhere we went there were signs about NO PICTURES! But I didn’t use the flash and I was stealthy. I think I was giving my cousin a panic attack with my ignoring of the rules.
Are you more of a reader or just a looker at a museum?? I get through museums quickly, because I don’t read the information about things. Sorry to the history buffs. But I did get drawn in by this large liberty statue (even though she’s holding another flippin’ star).
Woohoo, I read it The Goddess of Liberty statue sat onto of the state capitol building for almost a century. After it starts to show wear, it was decided to bring it inside the museum to preserve it.
See, I learned something about history during my first day in Austin. And I learned where to get great cupcakes.
Which factoid will I remember longer…..
