Visiting GWB Presidential Library and Museum

Yesterday I visited the new George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum on the SMU campus with my lovely friend Asma. I am a big fan of presidential museums in general (regardless of political affiliation), so I was really excited to visit. The museum was really well done, and the architecture alone is pretty incredible.

I really love when buildings include wildflowers in their groundskeeping (like one of my favorites, the Elisabet Ney Museum). So beautiful and so appropriate for Texas!

Extra: This picture was taken in the full-size reproduced oval office (unlike LBJ’s in Austin–it is 7/8th scale!).

I had to include this, even if it’s slightly embarrassing. I don’t understand those who have mastered the cell phone selfie thing. I am so bad at them.

  • That’s a cute selfie, Alyssa! But, I know what you mean about taking them… the front facing camera is never good, and it’s awkward to hold phones at arm’s length…especially with a friend! I love that you captured a bee butt on those pretty flowers!!!
