batman & friends

And to top it all off you live down the street from the box office, so internet fees and waiting forever online only to timeout, refresh the page, and losing your place in line can go to hell. After years of skipping over Austin, Sir Paul finally decided to grace this great town with his presence and we got to go. Here is the culmination of the weekend at our parents best-friends-from-the-military son's wedding. Photos from Texas Photo Party.
