So, we took the kids to the picnic area at Washington on the Brazos (the birthplace of Texas) and played for a while. We didn't attempt the historic part of it (we know our limits), but did point out the Brazos River--chocolate milk according to T.S.
After surviving the gravel-throwing-unattended kids at the playground, we set off to take pictures in the bluebonnets. Sadie was promptly bitten by fire ants.
(Part 2 of Day 2 to follow--it ended up being quite an adventure-filled day)
