Zumba Flash Mob

by on Oct.14, 2012, under Family, Miscellaneous

As many of you know, my wife, when she’s not writing children’s books, leads a double life as a Zumba fitness instructor at the Town Lake YMCA in Austin. One of her class members works at the world headquarters of Whole Foods Market (which, as an aside, is probably the most amazing supermarket you will ever find anywhere) and she was recently asked to put together a flash mob in the store to celebrate the Austin City Limits music festival that was going on last weekend. All the store staff were taught the dance and many of Nikki’s Zumba class members came along to beef up the numbers. At 4:30 on Saturday, this is what you would have seen had you been doing your weekly shopping at the Lamar Whole Foods store.

Update 10/15/12: The flash mob made it into an article on Huffington Post today. Fame or what?

Pioneer Day at the Pound House

by on Oct.01, 2012, under Miscellaneous, Photography

You’ve no doubt heard me going on about what a wonderful community Dripping Springs, Texas is but, in case you somehow managed to miss it, here are a few snaps from the Pioneer Day Festival which took place a week ago at the Dr. Pound House in Founders’ Park. This is another great example of a fun community event which involved a whole bunch of local groups and organisations.
