4 Days Till Ethan’s Birthday Countin’ down. Kinda makes you wonder what I’m gonna post on that day, doesn’t it, E?
VBS Flyers are in the mail. When I came out of the post office in downtown Houston, I was wishing I had my camera with me. There is a lot of Houston that is not that pretty, but the skyline from the post office is beautiful. I may have to go back down there soon and take some pictures. I can also get some of Sesquicentennial Park and Tranquility Park. They are very pretty.
Here’s a picture I found online, of the Houston skyline, taken from Tranquility Park.
This picture of Brandon and Rachael was taken at Sesquicentennial Park in October 2000. During Tropical Storm Allison in June 2001, Sesquicentennial Park was completely under water.
This is also that same waterfall:
Just a few blocks from the post office are the Harris County courthouses. On the left is our newest courthouse, the Civil Justice Center. Our civil courts were in a very old courthouse built in 1910, but there was not enough room. So the new civil courthouse was built and the historic court building is being renovated. They are both beautiful buildings. Our friend, Judge Cactus Cagle, has his courtroom in this new building.
On the right is our fairly new Criminal Justice Center. It’s next door to the Harris County Sheriff’s Department and the Harris County Jail.
Does anybody know where to buy gopher wood?
EDIT: Here’s a link to a neat website, from Cathy:
