Star of Republic Museum

The Star of Republic Museum at Washington on the Brazos was so neat!!! And Dawson and I have been studying Texas history this month so he was actually interested in a lot of the artifacts and exhibits. And Brady was just happy to run around and play. :-)

Posing in front of the Stephen F. Austin statue.

A much smaller version of Sam Houston than we are used to around here.

A model of a Mexican soldier and his weapons during the fight for Texas independence.

Looking in on some very creepy heads that lit up and told about their life in Texas.

Brady steering the riverboat. He loved turning the giant wheel.

Dawson's turn at the wheel.

Climbing up a humongous wooden screw.

Brady in the mock school area, playing with the water pail and ladle.

Offering me a drink.

Looking at some of the fascinating animals in Texas.

Posing by the buffalo.

Yee-haw! One of the cutest cowboys ever!

Another cute cowboy!

Drum, drum, drum.

The drums were definitely popular with the kids.

Listening to a neat story on Texas before they constructed their own mini Texas scrapbook. Aren't they all so cute?!
