A couple weekends before the madness descended upon life, Mr. Engineer’s parents made the flight down to Houston to bid us farewell.
The next day, we went to THE SPACE CENTER! (Capitalization is my own, for reference.) I’ve always had a huge fascination with all things space-exploration related (maybe this is also why I’ve always had a crush on Tom Hanks…hmm…) and was super excited. I took pictures like a dorky tourist all day.
And then one day it was like 78 degrees out so I laid out by the pool.
And forgot I had bandaids from a vaccination appointment on my shoulder. And got tan lines from them. (And I still have them.)
My camera tells me that somewhere in here I had cupcakes too, though I’d be lying if I said I could recall exactly when.
And I finally got my nasty hair done. (I low-light, if you’re wondering. My hair is naturally the brown equivalent of dishwater blonde.)
And marveled at how expensive Houston real estate is while I was waiting.
Also spotted a pair of red cowboy boots. (PLEASE tell me you watch How I Met Your Mother. Please.)
[Clearly I’m just grasping at straws here and trying to empty my camera.]
What cool things does your city offer that are “touristy” but still AWESOME?
