Caprock Canyons State Park

Caprock Canyons State Park

Caprock Canyons State Park in Quitaque is the home to the Official Bison Herd of Texas. Nathan and I went camping there with Brian and Eric and had an awesome time. There are bison and prairie dogs everywhere! While we were there we went fishing (no catches but lots of nibbles), hiking and horseback riding. In fact, I even slept outside under the stars one night in the hammock I bought last year. We all had a blast and this past weekend went by way to fast!

Studying British Broadcasting

In 2006 I was fortunate to join my mom and Troy University for a study abroad session with a focus on British Broadcasting. Here are my favorite moments.

Here I am with several London Police Officers in one of the many train stations we visited.

The Cavern Club in Liverpool, England was a popular little jazz club that a lot of famous musicians got their start. The Beatles made 292 appearances there and other frequent performers include The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Queen and The Who.

Here is William Shakespeare’s wife Anne Hathaway’s cottage in Stratford-Upon-Avon. This little community south of Warwickshire, England is the birthplace of Shakespeare as well as the home to The Royal Shakespeare Company and The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, one of Britain’s most important cultural venues.

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in Wiltshire, England. One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks.

While we were at Stonehenge there was a torrential downpour – it was hilarious.

Bath is a city in Somerset, South West England. The city became a spa when the Romans built baths and a temple in the valley of the River Avon.

 

2006.London_09

Getting a behind the scenes tour of the BBC was the highlight of the few weeks we were in London. We also had the unbelievable privilege to be in the studio audience of the very last live episode of Top of the Pops – the BBC’s iconic weekly music television program. We saw McFly sing “Don’t Stop Me Now”, Snow Patrol sing “Chasing Cars, Lemar’s “It’s Not That Easy”, The Strokes’ “You Only Live Once”,  Alesha’s “Lipstick” and Gnarls Barkley’s “Smiley Faces”. If you look hard enough, you can see me right in-between the two hosts as they say their final farewells. That is a moment I will never forget.

A Look Back… at the Rest of 2005.

Looking back at the experiences I’ve had has been so much fun, I’m pretty sure it’s going to start to become a regular ‘thing’. That being said… here we go!
