Patriotism A Week or Two Later

Over the July 4th weekend, we attended our neighborhood Independence Day parade. It was a feast for the eyes. We'll do our best to describe them here. For starters, there's this guy:

I mean... Check out this shirt off, giant styrofoam dog head, bicycle riding guy. Yeah. Also, did you know that Houston is the (self-proclaimed?) Art Car capital of the world? There were art cars.

Check out this cat-illac.

The slogan of this car was "Make out, not war." Oh yeah.

Also, there was this tiny clown.

Now, this guy rides through the neighborhood occasionally when it's not parade time. Check out that super-tall ride.

The highlight, though, was this crew of breakdancers at the very end of the parade.

Kinda makes you feel patriotic, doesn't it?

We Never Miss a Good Aquarium

It's true. If there is an aquarium, zoo or animal exhibit of any kind within 100 miles of where we are traveling, we go. New Orleans was no exception. This time it was the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. We saw tons of cool stuff.
