Houston Art Car Parade

Sure, they say Austin is "weird" and "keep Austin weird" but Houston is pretty weird too!  I asked Jason to come up with something for us to do one weekend and he comes up with this art car parade going on downtown.  We head down there and of course encounter mountains of traffic.  We parked nearly 10 blocks away and walked but we got there just in time!  We only missed the first few cars and we were able to behold what can only be described as weird.  Hundereds of  the most odd ball car contraptions you can ever imagine!  The boys were thrilled with the spectacle of cars in themes that go from laughable to jaw dropping.  Even Lillian enjoyed the view of the Art Car Parade.

Jackson liked this one.  It was called "Toyz on the hood".  Little toys of every kind.  Come to think of it, if I save all of our treasure box toys and birthday party favors, I could have one of these too!  

  In case you can't fully see, this was the VAN'd-AID and it was covered in bandages of every shape and kind.

Yep, you guessed it, snakes on a VAN.

 Soooo, appropriate!  I giant cockroach.  I'm pretty sure I've seen one this size up here in The Woodlands!

 Now this was just uncalled for!  I HATE spiders and this takes the cake!  Ugh.

I bet no one would have guessed that this was the boys favorite!  It's a Crapper Car.  Yes, it's a portajohn that you can drive.  And yes, the drivers seat, a toilet.  Classy!

This was a kid driving and it was a lawn mower but he really had it down on how to make it "pop"!  It was cute!

It was an interesting afternoon and we had to answer lots of "why" and what do they do with those cars on the other days of the year?  So if you see a peacock or a hippo driving around, send them back to Houston!
