Completely batty….

The weekend before this past one daddy, Grannie, and I (mommy had to work) took a short road trip to Austin to see 1.5 million bats fly out from the Congress Avenue Bridge. The bats migrate from Mexico every year during the summer months and always make their way to this bridge. They then have babies and fly back to Mexico in the winter months. They fly out each day right at sunset to go looking for food and return at dawn. It really is a pretty cool sight. We watched from the bridge, but you can also watch from a nearby hill or on the river. The whole area was packed with people. We stayed and watched for almost an hour and the bats were still flying out. You could hear their wings flapping and some hitting the bridge – they say don’t try to catch them because they may bite – no problems here because I’m not trying to get rabies.

Anyway, the bats were cool and since we didn’t really have a plan for the trip other than be in Austin by sunset to see the bats, we stopped by Inner Space Caverns in Georgetown on the way there to go spelunking. Daddy and I have gone into other caverns, but this was the first time for Grannie to go into any caverns. She thought it was pretty cool, but was a little concerned about falling on her butt since it was slippery – luckily, she didn’t fall.

In all, I had a great time with daddy and Grannie – we laughed a lot and learned a lot, e.g., Grannie isn’t that good at swimming under water. I also realized those two are nuts so it is up to mommy to be the sane one for me.
