H4L and I found the small park area and grounds to be super clean and inviting. A lovely amphitheater was also discovered amongst the fabulous vegetation that helped block out the blistering Texas Sun. The amphitheater featured a exact in size replica of the face of Sam Houston that is displayed on the enormous statue.

After the Diaper Deck scare, we loaded back in the mom ride and took off down the road. As we were driving along We passed this really weird thing being hauled by an 18 wheeler. Me, being the now so savvy mobile picture taker, I snapped a picture and uploaded to Facebook. In a matter of moments my weird find labeled " weird things you see while driving", was quickly defined by my fellow facebookers as pieces of a windmill. And sure enough we saw GIANT blades pass by not long after. Thank goodness for Facebook! :)
And so the adventure continued on and on and on until someone had to go to the bathroom. And luckily at that exact moment a Beaver popped up on the horizon. BUC-EES Beaver that is! Not sure if this fabulous Beaver ventures across state lines, but here in TEXAS Buc-ee is kind of a big deal. This mecca of a pit stop has it all. Every kind of jerky you can imagine, candied pickled jalapeno cream cheese dip, toys, clothes, gifts, Gas, grills you can buy and tote behind your car, and the cleanest snazziest toilets I have found in a long time. Each private toilet room provides its user with enough toilet paper for Armageddon, a nifty seat cleaning regimen and germophobe cleaner. Total awesomeness man!
Oh we are not done yet folks! Did I mention our quick trip over to Paris? Seriously! We visited Paris, well Paris, Texas and we saw the Eiffel Tower adorned with a Red Cowboy hat. Ain't we fancy in Texas! We have Famous Beavers and Towers wearing hats. We are just rocking here in this great state!
