Surprise! Austin Part 1

Last weekend LB and I went down to Austin to buy a truck. However, LB had no clue that Andy (his best friend) was going to meet up with us there and surprise him. The week leading up to the Saturday where we waited in line for the best BBQ I have ever had, contained emails like this back and forth between Andy and I:

Fun fact- I told LB I was putting together a total itinerary with food options every 3 hours and he says send it to Andy. I ask, "Why?" He says, "To make him jealous." So I am not sending that email to you to add to our believability. :)

Lock and load! :) I am so pumped. I was just telling kim at work (the only person I am telling) that it’s a good thing you didn’t surprise me, because I probably would have cried when I saw you. Larry won’t cry, but he’ll be super pumped—and then try and pretend like he knew you were coming the whole time.

Well, I was wrong about the not crying thing--LB definitely let a few tears flow and the three of us had the BEST 24 hours in Austin. We are all in love with that city now... and the BBQ... nom nom. I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story, but just look at LB's face as he realizes that Andy is there.

The conspirators!

Let's be cool now.

Manning the line. LB was incredibly grateful that Andy and I surprised him successfully and repeated over and over that it was one for the history books. Andy and I will be dining out on this one for years to come. :)
