While the kids and I were in Texas I took the opportunity to take some pictures of them.
All I had with me was my cell phone. But it takes pretty good pictures (I love my phone!)
I wanted pictures of my Half-Texans dressed up as Texans.
Just hanging out in downtown Nacogdoches. My hometown.
I love how the pictures turned out.
Even though I am NO photographer!
Watch out mama’s!
My Half-Texans make pretty good looking Texans!
One might not even know that they weren’t born there!
I love the old Mercantile store (it’s the store that has that awesome Coca-Cola mural on the side of it).
We went in to see if we could open our glass coke bottles, since they were the real deal and needed a thingy to open them. You know, a glass bottle opener thingy? (What ARE those things called?!)
Then I showed the kids how to drink their cokes with peanuts.
Have you ever done that before? You pour the peanuts in the coke bottle. Glass bottles are the best for this.
I love that I have these pictures of my kids in my hometown. And I would highly recommend you do this with your kids in your hometown sometime.
Now if Texas ever secedes from the nation, these pictures might just help us get back in.
And incidentally, is another reason I keep my birth certificate in a safe place.
When we were done downtown, I just HAD to get some more pictures of them in the Piney Woods of East Texas.
But next time we visit, I might just hire a better photographer (with a better camera)!
