Hey everyone! I am very glad to be back home, but I wanted to share some of the great times I had in Texas with my family… I absolutely loved spending time with my aunt, uncle and little cousin and we had lots of adventures during my 7 week stay.
Here are some cool pictures we took from some of our weekend escapades.
One of the cool things about Texas is that you can drive a couple of hours in any direction and always find something fun, exciting, and different.
One weekend we decided to explore Houston (about 30 miles away from where I lived) and had a blast walking around downtown, visiting the NASA Johnson Space Center, and going to church. Here are a couple of cool pictures…
Inside Lakewood Church in downtown Houston, the largest megachurch in the nation. (used to be a basketball stadium)
Getting to see some of the engineering marvels inside Johnson Space Center was one of the most humbling and exciting experiences I have had in my life, as I was literally dwarfed by most of the exhibits. Witnessing the immense feats of NASA was an excellent way to show me the versatility of engineering, and gave me even more insight to just how important it is for the growth and development of a people.
Fun times in Galveston, brunch with the family, with my little cousin Tai
Teaching Tai how to grill the best steak
Lastly, one of my favorite parts about my stay, learning how to drive a forklift.
I learned so much more than I had expected during my stay in Texas, mainly how to get out and have fun!
