Since we’re already in our mini vacation Austin, we decided to do some exploring Wednesday afternoon. We went to Inner Space Cavern in Georgetown, Texas. My DH and I know that our little girl loves exploring and seeing new things so we agreed to go see the cavern. We paid $9/adult entrance fee. While waiting for the next 1hr and 15 minutes tour batch, we looked around the gift shops and hung out in the lobby. Our little girl got fascinated with the colorful stones at the gift shop. She was doing some touch and feel and name the color game with every stone. We saw group of school kids touring the cavern. Oh yes, Inner Space Cavern in Georgetown, Texas is one of the great places for an educational tour.
Then our tour guide named Billy came and guided us down to the cave. He did a good job showing and sharing facts about the Inner Space Cavern. My dear husband mentioned that he and his parents visited the place when he was a young boy. DD wasn’t scared. She walked along with us and paid attention to every detail the guide was sharing with us. Everything is new to her. And she likes exploring. We had a great time. DD loved the underground scenery. So amazing! My favorite part was the drill holes made by the road workers when they’re building the Interstate Highway 35 in 1960’s. They were the ones who actually discovered the cave.
Then we head to the Austin Capitol. It was a beautiful afternoon. Not so hot and not so cold. The weather was perfect. We were able to go inside the capitol and looked around. There was a school event like a forum or something in the House of Representatives and we decided to get in and sit down. When there were students raising their hands to ask questions to the guest speaker, our little one also raised her hand. I thought that was cute.
It was 4:00 P.M. when we got back to the hotel. We relaxed for an hour before we going to the Fresh Beat Band concert in Downtown Austin. Our tickets said the concert will start 6:30 P.M. but the gates will open 5:30 P.M. So we got there on time. I know our darling daughter was tired from the day’s tours but she was still excited about the watching the concert. I bought her a flashing light. But when she saw the little girl beside her wearing a rock star jacket, she asked if she can have a jacket too. Well, we went and got one. We had a great time at the concert. It was a fun experience for Kaye.
Back to the hotel, we recapped our adventures that day. We helped Kaye gather the events together: Cave, Capitol, Concert. The Three C adventure.
