A Field Trip

Recently Oldest was Star Student for the week which meant he got to bring home the class bear. When you bring the bear home you are suppose to take it on an adventure and share with the class all that the bear did while he was off visiting you. On our way to take Rock N Rollie to Bucees because we know how exciting a gas stating can be...no  really it is an AWESOME gas station like no other but more abt that later...we stopped off at the Sam Houston monument in Huntsville.

This guy is HUGE! I think something like 67 feet tall. He sits right off the side of the interstate and we have always seen him but never bothered to stop. 

Here is Rock N Rollie learning all about Sam himself. 

And here are my boys acting like boys! Yep I definitely  live in a house full of men!;) The boys had fun and it made for a nice adventure for the bear.

 We opted out of the prison museum which was next before ya get to Bucees. Yes, I said prison museum and yes it is next to a prison.   

Now back to the gas station before y'all think we are nutso taking a field trip to a truck stop! Bucees is not just a truck stop gas station! If you live in Tx and have never stopped by one you are missing out! Bucees has EVERYTHING you could possible dream of like made from scratch deli, wine shop, hunting supplies, and a huge gift shop with tons of eye candy! It is the cleanest and I mean cleanest gas station you will ever stop at!! While we were there they had several employees on the floor scrubbing the grout lines with a tooth brush. They take clean to a whole level y'all! We went so that we could get Rock N Rollie his very own Bucees tshirt. Yes we drove an hour and half to get a stuffed bear a tshirt. Oh the things we do for our children! 
Click Here so you can see some pics of what I am talking abt! Bucees has quite a following here.

Now off to try and tackle the mantel. I am having the hardest time coming up with something to display. Sigh.... 


  1. That is too cute! Except for maybe picking poor Sam's nose. Ha! My family LOVES that store! And the nuggets are yummy. And addicting. Did you get some and share with the bear??

  2. Hi Pamela! Oh, what fun! Now I'm thinking about Buc cees! Love that place!
    be a sweetie and thanks for popping in to see me,
    Shelia ;)

  3. The picture of the boys is tooo cute. My oldest went to see the statue in 4th grade. She liked it up there. My youngest didn't get to go because of swine flu. They cancelled the field trip for them. So sad.
    Loves me some Buccees. So fun!
