This morning my friend Charla called me and reminded me it was the last day of the Architects of Air luminarium sculpture at the Long Center here in Austin. A few people had been telling me about it and how fun it would be for Mimi. I said what the heck, and agreed to meet Charla at her house at noon because she lives in walking distance.
Mimi and I made it to library story hour, made a quick trip through the Starbucks drive through for caffeine for Momma and juice and banana bread for Mimi and headed to South Austin. We got to the Long center at 12:30 and they had froze sales of the tickets until 2pm to make sure they could get everyone in who had paid for tickets. So we waited until 2pm and they only sold 50 more tickets at 2pm and we were in that lucky 50. We then got in another 1 hour line for the actual luminarium. Luckily it was a gorgeous Austin day and Mimi just played and ran around until we got to the front of the line.
