Chalk Walk 2014

On Saturday we craved pizza, so we decided to try Original Brooklyn Pie Co. It's a chain with locations all around Austin, including one by our new home. We started out by sharing a Greek salad, which arrived at our table deconstructed. Jackson and Olivia preferred it that way, since it made it easier to avoid the dreaded onions.

Thanks to a buy-one-get-one special, the kids shared a small pizza of their own, and Tony and I had this giant margherita all to ourselves. It was so good! Just the right amount of sauce, cheese, tomatoes, and basil. I could eat pizza every day, but I do have standards, and this pizza totally met and exceeded them.

Afterwards, we headed up to Round Rock for the Chalk Walk festival. As the name implies, you stroll around the plaza while artists work on their sidewalk art designs.

When we went last year, the artists were just getting started, so it was cool to see some finished creations this time around!

Jackson and Olivia also got to be pavement artists.

Jackson, of course, drew a complex laser-firing robot.

A hand/face washing station would be a nice addition to this festival next year. Chalk is quite a messy medium.

After working hard on their masterpieces in the direct sun, my gang needed strawberry shave ices to cool down.

Hope you had a lovely weekend!
