The Poinsettias are not as beautiful this year as last year - they are more spindly but the color of them are still beautiful.

Our friends Ruth and Gavino came south from San Antonio for a weekend visit. We had so much fun with them. Our first stop was the Museum of South Texas which tells the history of the settlement of South Texas. It was a very good museum.
Above, is the entrance to the museum showing its beautiful Mexican architecture. Take note of the blue tile facing on the steps.

We grandparents had fun in the hands-on areas... after all they're not just for little kids!

Outside in the courtyard they were working on the stone work around a bronze statue.

Below, Doug and Gavino "horsing around" on an iron horse.

Isn't that an interesting frontier fence behind Doug and Gavino above.

Above, is the hanging room on the second floor.

Above tells the history of the only hanging that took place here. Below, is the inside of the hanging room.

Above, Doug and I sitting by the courtyard fountain.

This photo above is for our friends Ken and Marilyn who have an Airstream Trailer like the one in this display of the museums technology in the 20th century.
