saturday, after a day of hard labor in the yard (trying to work this baby out of me), we made our way to south congress bridge for the 8th annual austin bat festival. 1.5 million mexican free-tailed bats live under the bridge in the summer months and at dusk it is apparently a spectacle to watch them emerge.
unfortunately, we were too far from their exit and the sky was too dark for us to spot more than one bat! what a bummer. rob and i are going to try to go back one evening before baby is born and when the crowds aren't as thick.
