Former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush returned to the "brown, brown grass of home" in Crawford, Texas yesterday after President Obama took office. They're staying at their ranch outside Crawford until their home in Dallas is ready.

The small town of Crawford, population 705, has been dubbed "The Western White House." It has prospered and seen its share of visitors, media and protesters during the last eight years.
