To infinity and beyond
In an attempt to whittle down our “things to do in Texas before we leave” list, we took a family adventure to Houston this weekend. I had forgotten how exciting road trips are to kids, even if it’s only a few hours away. I don’t know what the boys enjoyed most.
The tour of the Bluebell ice cream factory, the stop at the Houston Temple, the all-day excursion to the Johnson Space Center (worth every penny–very fun stuff), the hotel pool, eating at two different restaurants, or staying up late to watch the lighting of the Olympic torch.
Oh, it is so good to get away, even if just for a snatch of time. It is good to get away, even though I forget how much work it is to prepare for such an adventure with so many little ones in tow. And it is good to get away, because it is a good reminder of how nice it is to come home.
Happy President’s Day to you!
