Pink Saturday & George Bush Presidential Library

For those of you that saw yesterday's post, you know I am sharing my trip to central Texas with my DH & our French neighbors Daniele & Pierre. Today, I want to welcome you to the George Bush Presidential Library & Beverly's Pink Saturday. Please click on the link on my side bar to join all the other participants.

In the meantime, this is me (not a good photo because of the lighting) welcoming you to the exhibits(the car in the background is the car George & Barbara loaded the boys in & drove to Texas as a young family just starting out).


And this is where the road took them. To the White House. Above is the photo backdrop of the Inaugural Dinner (superimposed) & a table set exactly as it would have been for that dinner. To each side of the table is the outfits they wore that night. Note... hers is very PINK!

Here is a close up of that gown.
And the flowers on the table fit right in with today's Pink Festivities! The Library is located on the campus of Texas A&M University. No matter your political views, I think we all have to appreciate the fact that we can visit these wonderful museum's & enjoy seeing exhibits like this preserved for our future generations. Now, I hope you will go visit some more Pink at Beverly's.

Beautiful and fun Pink Saturday blog entry! It's a little gloomy outside today (hope the sun comes out) but your blog and a little cup of tea are giving me a little sun!

Happy Pink Saturday. Sending you good wishes from the tip of Michigan for a special weekend filled with sun, surrounded by those you l♥ve.

I would love to see the library. I am a fan I must confess. It looks like you had a great time. I think it must be incredible to see all that in one place, it's history in and of itself, Happy Pink Saturday, Char
