My hometown is pretty boring most of time time, but Longview is pretty decent. If you've never heard of Longview, that is perfectly normal, we're just a small town in East Texas. Our population is probably around the 78-80,000 mark...
Maybe one of the most interesting things about Longview, is that the bank was robbed by the Dalton Gang on May 23, 1894. The bank is now the city museum, which growing up in Longview is a field trip that you take every year for about 3 years...They also celebrate the robbery every year by having a reenactment of it called Dalton Days. I went once, and it may be something we take Kyndall too, once, when shes a little older.
Another thing that's cool about Longview, is the Great Texas Balloon Race held every July. Its so fun to watch the balloons float across the sky. They have live bands and food and games. I'm hoping we can take Kyndall this year to it. Chad and I have not been since we've been together, and that'll be 7 years this July!
Longview is also home to the Longview Lobos! Longview High School is the biggest high school in town, with close to 2000 students. I was a Lobo from 1998-2002. Our football is pretty good and the band is amazing!
