    In Plano, Texas there is a fun little place called the Crayola Experience. I took my two little mini-rogues there to dig into buckets of crayons, play with silly putty, and run them ragged through their six level jungle gym.

    The whole set-up is massive, and it has street signs to direct visitors to the different areas within the park. The "street" signs all have titles that are related to color and art themes. One sign really stuck out to me, as they inexplicably have a sign that is an homage to the Siege of Hue. :)

    One of the cool features there is that you can pick your own color crayon and name it whatever you like. The tool will dispense the completed crayon, complete with label and will match it to the closest color in the huge Crayola crayon arsenal. Here are some of the ones we came up with today.

    It was fun for all, and most importantly my two little ones were exhausted, which is an good outcome for any day out with the family.

    Hue can also mean a color or shade. I want to go there and play!

    Indeed. I'm being willfully ignorant on the Huế vs Hue thing. (Smiley added to original post for emphasis)

    Hey Otto, how are you liking my home state? I use to live in Plano when I first got to Dallas but then bought a house in Rowlett on Lake Ray Hubbard.

    I'm un-willfully ignorant. Especially early in the morning before coffee. Lol

    I can see Lake Ray Hubbard from my window. I've been canoeing/fishing there a few times.

    I absolutely love it here.

    Well, when I need a correct spelling for a word, with accent marks, I go to Wikipedia. If that fails me I Google "special characters."
