My dad’s side of the family had a reunion this weekend in the Lone Star state, and we were glad to go. I’ve never been to Texas before (except for a layover or two at DFW). I have always pictured Texas as a flat and brown state. I was expecting cacti, oh I don’t know, everywhere. I was pleasantly surprised by the lush green hills that welcomed us as we drove into the country outside of Houston. I think the word that Marji used to describe the scenery was “grashious.”
Here’s a picture of everyone that could come:
(I just love how my dad and my daughter are looking at each other and not the camera.)
There were many great activities. Here are pictures of some of them:
Not pictured were the hayride, the game of chicken foot (variation of dominoes), and eating. (Yes, eating Texas-style BBQ is an activity.)
My cousins were great hosts, and Texas is a great place to visit. I would love to return sometime soon!
