Ronak and I were struck by the variety of flowers throughout the San Antonio Zoo. They weren't only in the butterfly house exhibit either. Although that is where we saw the following bloom. They sprung from walls... appeared in exhib… more »
As I said in an earlier post, we arrived at the San Antonio Zoo when it was hot and a lot of the animals were taking a siesta out of a view. This led to a lot of confusion. Is the animal hiding? Is that a paw I see? Is this exhibit empty? And then… more »
I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with the San Antonio Zoo after having visited the North Carolina Zoo. It's true that some of the NC Zoo exhibit areas are so large that it is sometimes difficult spotting a zebra or a bison, but that's what I l… more »
Visiting the Lory House at the San Antonio Zoo is a unique experience. I wasn't sure what I would find there, (because I didn't know what a lory was), but as soon as I saw the house on the map and knew that it closed early, I wanted to go there.… more »
Before the rain came pouring down, we got an opportunity to see some interesting animals at the San Antonio Zoo. The komodo dragons recently had babies (which had to be kept in the reptile house, so the parents couldn't eat them). This komodo drag… more »
After the Bat Fest, we continued our Labor Day (My Birthday) Weekend with a trip to the San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium. By the time we arrived, there was a long line for admission and the hot, summer sun was high in the sky. We began with the bears… more »
I'm not sure how they can tell, but the Austin trees know that we have entered the season of autumn. Leaves have begun changing color and falling from the trees. Blue jays have been making a racket and squirrels have been gathering and burying… more »
We moved from basketball country. Tar Heels like their football, but their true passion is basketball. The clues: Michael Jordan Nissan in Durham, a Michael Jordan restaurant in Chapel Hill, the bonfires and overturned cars on Franklin Street after a… more »
Ronak and I weren't sure where the bats might appear from under the bridge, because we'd never tried to view the Congress Avenue Bridge Bats before. As we stood along the edge of the bridge, we noticed something swarming in the red lights that were sh… more »
At Bat Fest, Ronak and I enjoyed eating fair food, looking at crafts, listening to the live music, and watching kids ride the train. As the sun set over the river, new sights came into view such as the Bat Mobile. (I never knew that there were so… more »
I was very lucky this year. My birthday landed on Memorial Day, so we had a three-day weekend to celebrate. And our Saturday festivities centered around Austin's Bat Fest. The festival takes place on Congress Avenue Bridge, home to the largest urb… more »

In 2007, we moved to Austin, and this blog chronicled our adaptation to Texas life: festivals, wildflowers, and bats - oh my! Then we had a baby, and that changed everything, so now, we blog about where to buy organic food, what parks are fun for babies, which exterminator is taking care of our scorpion problem. (You know, the usual parental concerns.)
