After 11 days of the Great American Adventure, we finally made it to Houston. Driving into town was like putting on a great pair of running shoes after they've been broken in--it felt great! Being back in H-town was somewhat overwhelming, though. There was so much new construction that I didn't even recognize some parts of town. But, overall, it had the same welcoming feeling.

This was the last day in our rental car. Once we were in Houston, we returned the rental and borrowed BJ's car. She was kind enough to let us borrow her car. Thanks again, BJ!
