BIG Texas

We spent an entire week in Texas visiting Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Waco & Ft. Worth.  Things in Texas are bigger ... especially the l-o-n-g, flat stretches of land :)  I've always been a bit skeptical about Texas, believing that perhaps all that BIG state pride might be a bit misplaced.  Being there didn't exactly put that notion to rest, but we had a lot of fun exploring the state and especially catching up with friends and family.

I realized after we left Houston that I didn't take any pictures except of the oil refineries as we drove in ... oops.

So, our photo journey begins in San Antonio:

The Alamo

The Riverwalk

In Austin with Jason's Aunt, Uncle and Cousin.  The hibiscus in Texas were definitely the biggest I'd ever seen.  These steps are some that Jason's great grandmother climbed :)

In Waco with the lovely Winn family.

And lastly, Fort Worth.

We passed these gems on our way out of the state -- I thought the "24/7 Yum Machine" and drive-thru liquor stores pretty irresistible.

I LOVE San Antonio's Riverwalk! I lived between Waco and Austin, so this are also some of my favorite places in TX. And, yes, it is a BIG state! I was always amused by the drive thru liquor stores, too.
