Things to Do in Austin: Laguna Gloria

We continued our Austin adventures last week, stopping by Laguna Gloria after a massive swim fail at Westwood Country Club across the street (I'm pretty sure people cheered when I gave up and carried my tantrum-throwing toddler out!). Not wanting the entire afternoon to be a bust, we crossed the street to explore the ground of Austin Museum of Art's Laguna Gloria - a gorgeous historical landmark, makeshift art museum and event venue on Lake Austin!

I've been on the grounds a handful of times to pick up kiddos from the art camps there, but never inside the home or down through the grounds to see the sculptures, so I figured it was high time. Also? David and I were married just next door at Mayfield Park, so that entire area holds a special place in my heart <3

Check out some of the wonderful photo opps:

Two of my favorite pieces inside of the museum:

Once we'd had our fill inside, we followed the stairs down towards the lake to check out the many sculptures on the path. Pardon our outfits - we'd just been swimming and didn't have a change of clothes :)
