I read an article recently about a family who made it a goal to visit all 50 states before their children graduated from high school. As I was reading, I was thinking that is pretty neat, we should do that. Then, I got to thinking that I don't know that I want to visit every state. Plus, with my husband's job he travels so much while he is working that once he comes home, he is in no mood to go anywhere (usually).
So, I brought this idea up to my sister and she suggested that I just focus on cities in Texas. I thought, "What a great idea!" I mentioned that idea to a friend who suggested a book about day trips from Houston - even better!
I have been researching some ideas and so far these are what I have come up with:
Houston Museum of Natural Science - Sugarland
Brenham - Blue Bell Factory (we have already seen this but it is still on my list of things to do this year)
One Room Schoolhouse League City
Rusk Palestine Railroad - this looks like so much fun!

Do you have any other ideas you would suggest?
