Independence Day - George H. Bush Museum and Library

Happy 4th of July!
On the morning of the 4th, we had some free time so we went to check out the George Bush Library and Museum (the elder George Bush) near the Texas A&M campus. When we arrived, there weren't many people, so we went in and looked around.
For $9, they would take your picture sitting in the chair in the replica Oval Office. But for $0, I would take your picture shaking hands with a Chinese statue. A bargain? I think so!
By the time we left, there was a long line of people waiting to go through security. Outside, they were setting up a place for an orchestra and some military display vehicles in preparation for the evening fireworks.
The museum was a neat place to visit, especially on the 4th.

Hi again, Erin!

Happy Fourth of July to you, too! That day has always meant so much to our family, and I see that you picked a very special place to go to commemorate the occasion. I would LOVE to be able to go there. The George W. Bush Museum was not in existence when I used to live in San Antonio years ago, so I guess I'll have to return to Texas (something that I've always wanted to do anyway) and make a trip to see it.

I'm not sure what you mean about the 'Chinese statue' comment. It must be a joke that I just don't "get". (I'm dense sometimes, I guess.)

God bless you...and God Bless America!
