Texas, The Lone Star State

Our family is leaving today for Texas. The movers are arriving around 9 or 10 to load up our moving van. Then Jonathan will take off with Grandma and Jack {the dog}, while the girls and I will be flying down to Dallas later this afternoon.  I’m taking off a few days from blogging to spend time with family and get settled in Austin. I thought I’d leave you with a few fun facts about the great state of Texas:

1. Texas was an independent nation from 1836 to 1845.

2. Texas is the only state to enter the United States by treaty instead of territorial annexation.

3. Austin is considered the live music capital of the world.

4. Dr Pepper was invented in Waco in 1885.

5. El Paso is closer to Needles, California than it is to Dallas.
