Audrey's Adventures Downtown

This past weekend, Audrey had a chance to see some of the sights downtown. Here she is outside of Houston's City Hall:



















And here she is at the original Houston Public Library:















Here's a closer pic of the sign, if anyone wants to open it up and read what it says:



















The original library building is only used for special collections and for special events. Since it's right next door to City Hall, the mayor gives press conferences here. Audrey thought it would be fun to give a little speech of her own.

Unlimited kale and cilantro for all!



















After her speech, Audrey seemed a bit tired and pensive. Worn out, I guess, with the burdens of being a public figure.















So we went and got some coffee...















...and browsed the books at the modern public library building next door, where Audrey selected a book about Texas wildlife.

Texas rabbits have really big ears!!!















Feeling refreshed, we went to Tranquility Park, one of Houston's downtown parks. Here she is admiring the fountains.



















And here she is gazing up at the skyscrapers.



















It was a lot for a little bunny to take in, so she said no more pictures, please and asked to be taken home for a little nap and some swiss chard.

More soon!

Houston is so pretty!

She must have been overwhelmed by those tall buildings! What a whirlwind trip she's having.

She is certainly playing the tourist! And probably playing out her hostess, too! But she'll have lots of memories of a great time in your city!

We always like a nap and chard after sightseeing! Audrey, I am glad to see that you are being a good girl, but I admit that I kind of miss your mischievous bottom photocopying.

You guys are having WAY too much fun. I am jealous. I want to run around a pretty, historic city with you, Audrey! And you, too, Ann. That'd rock.

What a great idea! Instead of the traveling gnome, the traveling bunny!!!
