weekend snapshots


Started the weekend off by going on a quick road trip to see Kyle's parents in Graham, TX. We were greeted by the usual friendly faces and explored around, including a few antique stores downtown. A particular shop that showcased a set of iron bars actually used to be the county jail, oddly enough. I think I must be also craving a visit to the zoo or something, because I was so desperate to get a photo of a few buffalo that Kyle's dad even pulled over on the side of the road so that I could snap one. Call me animal obsessed, maybe.

We finally got to try out the amazing telescope my sister bought us for Christmas too...it really is incredible how much of the sky you can see once you are far enough away from the city. I was so excited to see Jupiter and its 4 Galilean moons for the first time ever! Thanks to my little astronomer...

Someone else's random buffalo? That's crazy! And man, your Texas roadtrips make me want to go on one... but my entire family lives in Houston, so there's no one to visit. Sigh.
