Grad Nigh Pics

Well we made it...almost

We are currently here in Austin, Texas, about an hour an a half from Waco. We have had a wonderful time so far. We have had many adventures thus far, even a tow truck driver telling us some of the stupidest people he has ever met are from California. 13 hours of driving the first day (Rancho-El Paso). Then after our stops and minor car issue in Fort Stockton Tx the next day it was about 11.5 hours (El Paso- San Antonio). Waking up on Saturday in San Antonio we spent the morning going to the Alamo and River walk enjoying what the city had to offer.

After that we headed on up to Austin where we checked into the hotel and walked along the famous 6th street.

July 4th we were here in Austin as well and we attended a church service here then went to finally see Toy Story 3. It made me laugh at how much it truly was like my life right now, and how Mrs. Potato Head reminded me of Grandma Soto. Then we headed back to the hotel for a nap. We then drove up the the capitol building and watched fireworks over the river, it was beautiful.

Well tomorrow we head up to Waco to browse around, then move in on Tues and school starts Wed.!

Last So. Cal. Day

Well July 1, it is here. We are set to leave the house at 6:15 a.m. to head out to El Paso. This last day has been full of emotion mostly masked by packing. I picked up my best friend Geoff and he ran some errands with me. We stopped for a shake one last time and enjoyed the moments. Geoff's girlfriend and my good friend Carli came over as soon as we returned to the house. Others came by to say good bye to me. Then my "little sister" Kat came by and we all hung out and talked in my room as I packed it away into boxes. Well that is all for now. I will try and update this with pics when I can. Here is what we will be up to the next few days!
