Mellow Johnny's

As I mentioned last week, Damon & I recently made a trip to Texas for a little R&R--well, that's actually a lie, if you know anyone in the Acton family, you know that their vacations rarely contain much rest or relaxation. All the same, we took a trip to Texas!

One of the things that Damon was most excited about was making a trip to Mellow Johnny's. For those who don't know, Mellow Johnny's is a bike shop that Lance Armstrong created in downtown Austin. Damon has a huge man-crush on Lance, so this was one of our top "have to see" items while in town. Lance is a huge inspiration for Damon, so I thought what the heck. It was actually an amazing place to see. Lance memorabilia is displayed all over the shop and it has an awesome atmosphere [it almost made me want a road bike, then I remembered my coordination and clumsiness...]

I think Damon was a little disappointed that Lance was no where to be found while we were there--but I'm sure he will get over it :)

Here are some of my favorite pictures from Mellow Johnny's.
