We had a great trip this weekend!! As a family, we trekked down to Washington on the Brazos to do some sight seeing. The next day we headed to A&M to compete in District Livestock Judging.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Washington on the Brazos, honestly I had no idea what would be there or what we would learn. Washington on the Brazos is where Texas became a Republic.
We were able to sit in a building that is built to mirror the original building where a group of men met and signed the Declaration of Independence. We heard how these men met while the Alamo was being over-run by Santa Anna and how the call for help came.
This place is rich in Texas history, between the museum that chronicles the history of Texas, to the working farm that gives a picture of what life in the 1850’s in Texas looked like.
It was a great day to walk around and enjoy the wildflowers too!!
The next day we headed to A&M to sign in for Livestock judging. This was the district level competition. Our boys signed up at the last minute at the county level competition during our Henderson County Livestock show. They enjoyed it, so we thought they would like to do it again! This time we brought a friend Christopher along, and it sure seems like he enjoyed it!!
We even stopped by to see the George Bush Library and the gorgeous pond behind it.
We even got a chance to find a geocache!!
