Our trip to Houston....part 2!

So upon our arrival to Houston, we all discussed what we wanted to do....we debated about NASA, multiple places of interest, etc.

None of them really sounded that interesting (i kid i kid...there were so many things that we didn't get to that we wanted to do), until Melissa mentioned.....

The Nation's largest and only MUSEUM OF FUNERAL HISTORY!!!

(morbid I know....but seriously who can say that they have been to this museum....only probably a handful of people in this fine country, and now Rhett, Aaron, Melissa, and I can count ourselves amongst these people)

So here is the photo documentation of this "exciting" stop!

I wasn't quite sure....
Business cards make this legit!


This lady modeled burial attire for a living....so when you complain about what you do for a living....remember this woman...

Melissa started to warm up to this place!  She's always so happy and cheerful!

This was a money coffin...apparently it had thousands of dollars inside and outside....


For $5 you could have your very own replica of a famous person's death certificate (this may have been one of the creepiest things here)

Snow White's Coffin....

Overall this place was pretty interesting and informative...they had replicas of presidential coffins, memorabilia from several prominent figures in history, and information on the history of funeral history....

but it indeed was quite odd....

After we were done, we enjoyed a frosty soda from Sonic and made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies....a perfect ending to a strange and enlightening experience!
