Alicia Kokemor Rossow is not only an expert in the field of speech pathology, but she is also the proud mother of two twin 13-year-old daughters. After attending undergraduate and graduate school at the University of Texas Austin, Alicia Kokemor Rossow chose to stay in the area and open a private practice in Round Rock, Texas. Round Rock is north of Austin, so Alicia Kokemor Rossow and her two daughters spend a great deal of time in the area. Keeping twin 13-year-olds entertained is hard work, so Alicia Kokemor Rossow compiled a list of her top three favorite places to bring her daughters in the Austin area.
· Blue Hole – Georgetown is north of Austin, and is a quiet little town with a small liberal arts college. Blue hole, a small swimming hole, is a local favorite in the hot Texas summers and a great place to bring the whole family. Often, Alicia Kokemor Rossow and her daughters will pack a picnic and spend the day lounging around the swimming area.
· Botanical Gardens – The Austin Botanical Gardens are a great place to spend an afternoon taking a leisurely walk amongst a wide variety of plants and flowers. Alicia Kokemor Rossow and her daughters are especially fond of the Rose Garden, which has lush grass areas to lie in and soak up the beautiful surroundings.
· IMAX Theater – The IMAX Theater in downtown Austin is a great option if you need to get out of the heat. Alicia Kokemor Rossow especially enjoys the feature films they screen, but her daughters often attend the natural science educational films.
