We're taking our 40th Wedding anniversary trip to explore Brenham, Texas and the surrounding area. Thursday we checked into our nice little room at the Brenham Bed & Breakfast and were greeted by our hosts, James and Susan. We're in the Blue Bonnet Room, chosen because it had it's own private entrance, which I knew that John would like. We got to Brenham before our check in time so we decided to go out to Washington on the Brazos park to see the place where Texas began as a Republic in 1836, declaring our independence from Mexico. The old building that the delegation met in has been rebuilt over the years a few times, but they have a good depiction of what it might have looked like. Our guide gave us a nice talk about how the events that took place there that helped shape our state.
