Fall Vacation 09 ~ Sat 9/26 Groom, TX

On our way to Colorado with Linda and Philip, we spent the night in Amarillo, Texas.  Just outside Amarillo is a small town called Groom, TX.  This is the cross that sits on the side of the highway.  It is beautiful at night!  The man that built the cross is a local engineer that lives about 30 miles from the property the cross is on.  He felt like God was leading him to build a cross, so he built it with no place to store it.  Someone donated the property and the cross was moved to its current location.  The bronze statues have been added to tell the story of the last week of Christ's life.

All around the base of the cross is bronze statues of the last week of Christ life. IT IS TOTALLY AMAZING!

This is a must see if you are headed toward Amarillo!

This is the view outside the door of the tomb!  What am amazing angle to get the tomb, the angel and the cross all in one picture!

Benton Bryant Football Game at War Memorial

Peepaw and Jordan at the Benton ~ Bryant game Sept 4, 2009
Jordan had a blast dancing to the band music and just being outside.  She loves outdoors, and even if she didn't have a clue what was going on at the game, she loved the lights, music and the excitement.  Bryant won 38-7.  She is all decked out in her Hornet Blue!  Do we have a future Hornet growing up before our eyes??
