Scootin Around Texas

A few weeks ago, Rob and Rachel visited the San Jacinto Monument. Not many people know it exists (even in Texas), but it's worth a trip if you happen to be visiting Houston. At 567 feet, it's 12 feet taller than the Washington Monument, and situated in the actual spot / swamp of the battle where Sam Houston exclaimed, "Remember the Alamo!" Given its size and the sacredness of its location, we found it a little bizarre that it was so unkempt. Let's just say there is a lot of opportunity for improvement around the facility. For starters, the sidewalk that surrounds the reflecting pool is sinking into the water...

What do they call it in literature jargon when you have a bunch of random thoughts all strung together? Here is an example of what I'm talking about: I am so jealous that you got to go to the ice cream factory!! Did you get free samples? I am glad that you guys are exploring Texas so much. I remember going to the monument a couple of times. It is pretty cool. Your little guy is so cute! You should have taken a picture of Rachel sitting in the field of bluebells. Beautiful picture. Can't wait to see you again!
