Austin recommendations?

<EDITED>

My brother-in-law is coming into town this afternoon. (Hopefully I won’t have any terrible stories to share, but I probably will have some minor annoyance posts.)

On Thursday, Mr. Raptor, bro-in-law, littleraptor, and I are going to Austin. We’re spending at least one night, but we might stay until Saturday. I know I want to go to the Museum of Natural and Artificial Ephemerata but I’m not sure what else to do. Mr. Raptor wants to go tubing which sounds like a lot of fun, but we do have a 3.5 yr old with us so I’m not sure if it’s entirely possible..

So what’s some fun stuff to do in Austin? We don’t have much time, so maybe just three or four fun things, family-oriented, adventurous? I know they have a zoo and a kid’s museum, but we have that stuff where I live so I’m thinking about something uniquely Austin.

I’ll tell you guys all about it when I come back :) We’re leaving Thursday so you probably won’t hear much out of me after tomorrow night.

ETA: If we do stay until Saturday, we’ll be looking for a good campsite to spend the night at, so campgrounds recommendations are also needed!
