La Casa Nueva

I know, I know, most of you have already been barraged with pictures of the house, but for posterity we're posting some of our favorites on the blog. If all goes well, we will close on April 13th. So, until you all get down here to visit us, here's a little virtual tour:


Living/Dining Room from Entry

Family Room
(There's a wet bar on the right - crucial for martini-making)



Living Room from Above

Upstairs Gameroom/Loft

Gameroom Window Seat

Part of the Yard

Patio w/ the owner's dog.
(Amy - her name is Shay!)

Deck and Half of the Pool

The bedrooms and bathrooms are hard to photograph, but if you would like to see them there are a bunch more house pictures here. Yeah, sorry, I went a little shutter happy at the inspection.

There are no bathrooms at the Alamo.

Just one of the many important lessons we learned when my parents came to Austin for their very first visit. We already knew there was no basement thanks to Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. The weather was beautiful and we spent a great day in San Antonio taking in the sites. Jon discovered his new favorite quote: "You may all go to hell and I will go to Texas" -- Davy Crockett, 1835
We made a stop in San Marcos to see the spot where Jon and Stacy launch for the Texas Water Safari.

A few pictures from the Riverwalk in San Antonio. Lots of fun bars, restaurants, and shops as far as you can see.

Jon, me, and mom at the Alamo.

Kona got lots of walks in the 80 degree weather. Is this dog huge, or what?

Kona's new favorite toy - the nearly indestructable Hedgie the Hedgehog. A gift from his grandma.
