Bayou Bend: Mansion and Beautiful Garden in the City // Things To Do In Houston

Hello, everyone! A couple of days ago, my family and I went to family day at Bayou Bend. Bayou Bend is a 14 acre piece of land owned by the Fine Arts Museum. It is mostly made up of beautiful gardens with an amazing house stuck in the middle. I personally think that this thing was a castle but I was informed by my father that this was incorrect.  But the most amazing thing about this house was the things inside. Each room was suposed to represent a different era. The person who originally owned the house was a collector and collected items from many different time periods. On the tours you can go through the house and learn about the rooms and the items. It is very cool. Anyway I took a couple of pictures and decided to show you guys. 

My dad. I actually really like this picture but I kind of wish that the person was me. The bridge was so cool. It was like an old draw bridge made adorable. 

The lighting is questionable in this photo.  Probably a fail. What do you guys think?

The statue is beautiful. My sister and mom are in the background. 

Like how cool are these windows? I love the border. Very old timey. 

That is my mom, by the way. She is quite photogenic. I have like the cutest mom in the whole world (no offense to other moms). 

Aren't the gardens beautiful?

It kind of looks like the alamo. 

Go yellow chairs!

And more yellow chairs!

The staircase might be one of my favroite parts of the house. 

This is one of the only portraits of the lady who used to own the house. 

I love this dining room so much!


I kind of liked the vibe from this room. 

Me going inside. 

Have I improved my posing skills at all? No? Yeah proably not. 

I love this photo so much! Like ahhh! I might be in love. My mom took it. She is seriously amazing. 

I love how the arch goes over the statue. 

I look bored don't I. Fun fact I am wearing the same leggings I was wearing
 that day as I type this. 

I am not sure about this photo. Also do you like my dress? It is one of my favroite dresses. 

There was also a little band. 

And bonus you get 2 pics of me at the beach because why not. 

It was cold at the beach *everyone gasps* I know it was weird. Anyway so I had to wear a jacket and I was still freezing. 

So how did you like this post? Should I do more posts like this? Do you like my outfit? Have you been to Bayou Bend before? Have you ever seen a mansion/castle/amazing garden before?
