Things change...and we've discovered that not all of Texas is like Houston.
This weekend, we had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in Houston for Spell Girl's latest accomplishment. I still don't love Houston that much, but we had such a great time over the weekend and we did so many fun things, that I sort of have to credit the whole city for the fantastic and memorable experience. We spent most of our time downtown and LOVED it.
Dinner Friday night at Hard Rock HOUSTON
I have no idea what's up with June. That's her face of the week...ugh...11 yr olds!
After dinner, we walked over to the County Courthouse for the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting...
That's Ruben Studdard from American Idol...very cool
They did a huge fireworks show when they lit the Christmas tree...amazing!
On Saturday morning, we went to the Houston Aquarium (it had to be it's own post), and did a little sight seeing...
Theatre District...we couldn't resist getting a picture of Spell Girl with that giant bass
I love that there is ART everywhere in downtown Houston.
The tree from Friday night
I am humbled and happy to admit that there are beautiful things about this place that I had written off years ago. I'm so glad we had the chance to go back there and find them.
