The girls have finally gone Texan

We took a trip to the legendary Cavender’s this afternoon.  For those not familiar with it, it’s a huge shop filled with Western boots and clothing (or cowgirl clothes as the girls prefer to call it).  You can take a look here for an idea of the sorts of things they stock: Cavender’s.
