To Infinity and Beyond

Monday, January 31, 2011

For our third weekend in Houston, we decided to get a city pass and see many of the attractions that Houston had to offer. One of the stops on the map was the Houston Zoo. I kept wanting to say the Hogle Zoo, but Katie was happy to correct me. The zoo was a decent size and we had a lot of fun. It seemed a little bigger than Hogle Zoo, but overall very similar. Here are a few pictures from our adventure.

After the zoo, we headed over to the Houston museum of natural science. The museum was fairly big and diverse. It had many different areas in the museum and a few special exhibits. One of the special exhibits was from the discovery channel about real pirates. We were able to get pictures from almost all of areas except the special pirate museum unfortunately. Arrrrggg.

The next time we got out, we went down to the Houston space center. Unlike the space center in Florida, this space center is contained mostly indoors in a single building. We were able to explore a lot of NASA's history and see the mission command center. It was a nice change of pace and an opportunity to see something new.

To finish it all off, we stopped by a local joint T-Bone Tom's BBQ and enjoyed some local Texas cuisine. It was a nice way to finish off our evening.
