I live in the grand state of Texas! I' love Texas!! I've learned it's hotter than the devils tongue...more beautiful than a fresh baked cup cake....and friendlier than the high school counselor that gave you the creeps. Come share my adventures in life. I'm a mother of three beautiful one's & two hairy ones (my doggies). I must also mention that I'm the CEO of the family. I've learned that life is more than 'my fine shirt just got soaked' bath times, 'hey we are so running fashionable late again' swimming lessons, your most recent 'break down' in the laundry room (yes I'm talking to you; now put down the dryer lint slowly), the latest 'does my butt look big' moment, or even that rock awesome meal you cooked last night. Life is random, sexy, unbelievable, predictable and darn cool. Lets get crafty, create, explore Texas, and have some pretty sweet experiences!

Celebrate Freedom…

Summer is now in full swing and we are finally getting to enjoy wonderfully hot weather.  As the 4th of July approaches there are many activities that we can take our families out to enjoy.  I hope that while we are enjoying our parade, our BBQ, and all other activities that we will take the time to give thought and thanks for the freedoms that we enjoy in the grand land of the United States of America.

It’s easy to take our freedoms for granted especially since we are a blessed Nation who haven’t had those liberties taken from us.  With as turbulent as this world is and how unpredictable the future is we should all take a pause and reflect on our freedoms and our journey that is this life!  Happy 4th of July…

Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide.  ~Napoleon Bonaparte

From the hands of Johannes Gutenberg to the inspiring works of Benjamin Franklin, you’ll experience what true freedom of the press really means.   All activities are free and open to the public.  Enjoy all the activities this Patriotic event has to offer at the Colonial Days.  Enjoy a youth theater concert and Historical presentations. Experience the history of printing with the world’s only complete working replica of Gutenberg Press.  See the colonial way of living.
