Clan of the ....White People

Whew! What a whirlwind! The Children's Museum, The Oasis, Whole Foods Landmark store, Amy's Ice Cream, South Congress....we hit them all.
The rest of the McAustin clan has headed for their respective corners of the country, and we here in Austin are left to recuperate. No more company until after the Princess's debut.
In honor of the moon and all the stars coming into perfect alignment causing everyone to converge in one place for a few hours, we decided to honor the occasion with a photo. We went to the cheap photography place in the mall, and it worked out surprisingly well. Of course, getting 3 generations including 5 men, 3 women (1 very pregnant), 2 toddlers, and one infant to follow directions, sit still, smile, do it multiple times, and then actually agree on which photo the most people look decent in is no small task. But the end result was worth it.

Behold, the McAustin Clan:

a.k.a. The White Shirt Mafia

It was a great weekend, and (I think) a good time was had by all. Now back to our regularly scheduled program......let the birthing begin!

Wow! That's a great picture! But I *know* what I spent there on Nik's three-year-old pictures, and I will not call that place "cheap!"

That's a wonderful family picture! I had to do a double take because from your little profile picture I always thought you had short hair. Very pretty!

That is a great picture!!! The coordination must have been amazing!

The Oasis...great view, great drinks...baaaaaaaad food. Have you ever been to Shades? It's very cool but only open from April to September (you have to take a boat to get there...)...same idea...great atmosphere..."lake food" (read: you're not there for the food).

As to the video sending everything to the bottom...in the code for the video there is a number after the words "height" and "width"...I think it's set at 300...change both of them to 200 and it will fit in the column nicely.
