Texas Winter Wonderland: Winter Gatherings 2016

by Nathalie L. 2015-01-08 Soph Dallas and Houston 2

As many are back home for winter break, spending time with family or preparing themselves for the semester to come, various home groups in Austin embarked on drives to Dallas, Houston or San Antonio, on a cold winter weekend to reconnect with them.

While the weather outside was kind of frightful, the warm and pleasant reunions were quite delightful! We were dispersed in our different home groups, trying to hit up attractions and activities these cities were known for.

Many had a jump start on being active this new year, as some played basketball, football, or went on a couple of rounds of mini-golf. The Chao home group took it to another level, as they did a throwback to our childhood days of go-kart racing!

However, for others they went on what seemed like a boba tour, as they went from one boba place to another on the search for the best boba.

And of course no trip would be complete, without some of the good food that these different places had to offer!

All in all, it was a good time of food, fun and fellowship, as we were able to reconnect with those who are back home for the break. Can't wait to see everyone back in Austin for the spring semester!
