The next day, July 4th, we went and ate in town and then decide to head to New Braunfels to go to Schlitterbahn. After 3:00pm it's half price admission and the kids were free anyway so we decided that even if the kids got cranky it was worth the try. The kids could ride all the tube rides, so that's what we did. Sabrina was not thrilled at first but ended up loving it, Aidan only cried once when he got separated from me for a few minutes. Even on the large rapids they had a good time. In between rides we let them play in several of the numerous kids areas and they had a blast.
That evening as everyone else was watching fireworks, we took the opportunity to eat at a local German restaurant. Nothing like celebrating our freedom than by eating the fare of another country, especially one we went to war with before. But it was good, and we were in New Braunfels. We came back home on Sunday and it took twice as long thanks to the holiday traffic. The kids were restless and antagonizing each other, just the first of many family vacations to come! All in all it was a great trip and I can't wait to do something like this again next summer!
