Last week was full of activity. To begin with it was homecoming week. There was of course the game and all the activities associated with queens, football, votes, floats, and parades. My baby went to the parade. Our sitter took him that afternoon and he seemed to enjoy himself at such an event. We took him to the team’s very first season home game and he sat all the way through halftime in my lap without any issue.
On my way to work earlier in the week, I came across this structure in the photo while driving through McKinney, Texas on my way to Allen. I turned around and drove into the parking lot to get a better glimpse of this beauty. I knew I must return, go inside and inquire about taking photos on the property. Later, I googled “Cotton Gin McKinney TX” and discovered that in order to photograph the inside, one must reserve a slot on the calendar which costs a few bucks. Apparently this beautiful historical building is used for all sorts of activities including photo shoots. One day.
McKinney TX has never been a city I spent much time in. Quite the opposite. I have spent as little as time as possible simply because the drive on the 75 is so challenging to and from Dallas. But once off the main drag and to the east side of town, it becomes much more interesting.
Aside from bad traffic at rush hour on the 75, El Dorado Parkway, and the forever construction of the 121/75 interchange, McKinney is known as a one of the best places to live and raise a family. I personally am very partial to small town living, but there is quite a bit that this city has to offer.
