In any case, I took a small trip to Austin with three of my best friends. It was short, and simple. But sometimes those are the best! We got dinner at Abel's on the lake where I got a free shirt (& shot) for my birthday.
After that we relaxed at the hotel, and watched a bit of the opening ceremonies for the Olympics. On Saturday, we drove to Barton Springs and swam all day, breaking only for lunch nearby.
It was a beautiful (and hot) day, so we ended up really enjoying ourselves. :) If you're ever in Austin- barton springs is a must. It's clean, the water is chilly and clear, the people are nice, and it's beautiful! After our swim, we ate dinner at Guerros and then headed out to 6th street for quite the adventure!
All in all, a quite good birthday weekend.
