Last Morning in Texas

Today we will be boarding our plane to head back to Davao.
We have enjoyed a wonderful visit here in Texas with my sister, Sarah.

We visited the Houston Space Center. It is amazing to see how big the engines are for the space craft.

My sister took us to Kemah for supper. It is a boardwalk area by the bay. We had good food and good fun!

We spent some time at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
Kirsten loved the gems. Ben enjoyed the dinosaurs. Mikayla enjoyed the astronomy section.
We saw a cool demonstration on polymers, too.

At a park near the museum they had a statue of Rizal! He is a national hero in the Philippines!

Aunt Sarah had a birthday celebration for Ben since his 'real' birthday is on August 3rd.

Aunt Sarah took us all to the zoo, too. Although it was hot and felt very much like being back in hot Davao, we had a good time there.
