Big Sam 15th Anniversary

On Saturday, we attended the 15th anniversary of the big Sam Houston statue (the tallest statue of an American hero). It was a small event and not many attended, which is unfortunate because it was really nice. There was free lunch, a birthday cake for Big Sam, games for the kids, miniature Sam Houston statues that they could paint and take home as a souvenir, a band, and speakers. Plus, it's always fun to visit the giant statue.

Brady happy walking around the huge wraparound porch at the visitor's center.

Happy walking around the Sam Houston statue. Do you get the picture that he's happy just to be able to walk around? Such little pleasures.

Dancing to the music from the band.

Me with my sweet Dawson!
