Waco

Sampling Freshly Made Dr. Pepper
In the Dr. Pepper Museum
We got up this morning, had breakfast, and checked out of our Ft. Worth hotel. The kids were tired, but they managed to stay in pretty good spirits. It was mostly a travel day with some fun mixed in between.
My sweetie found an awesome park in Waco near the river where we stopped for lunch. The kids watched squirrels chase up the tree and they played on the big rocks while I made sandwiches. Baby Doll and Scout played in the splashpad and got soaked! I only wish we could have stayed longer.

But we had an appointment for 1:00 at the Dr. Pepper Museum for a one-hour tour. Drama Queen loves Dr. Pepper, so she was ecstatic!

I loved the old bottles and the history. Curly loved the horse that was covered with bottle caps and had hair made out of aluminum cans. My sweetie could have stayed all day in the comfy chairs and watched the 80s Dr. Pepper commercials. I even let all the kids try the freshly mixed Dr. Pepper we received at the soda fountain. Unfortunately, some of them liked it a little too much...

We left Waco and drove to College Station where we had lunch at Rosa's, a Mexican eatery. My kids had never seen a tortilla machine before or even the fancy d├ęcor they had covering the walls. It was a great experience!

We left College Station and drove through more small towns before we finally arrived in Humble, TX, a suburb of Houston. My sweetie and I relaxed while the kids went swimming. We can definitely tell that the air is heavier here than it was in Ft. Worth.

Lots of big plans for tomorrow. Now if I could just remember to take pictures...

I think your stop in Waco sounded fun. I imagine it would be fun to see a Dr. Pepper Museum; that is very unique. I used to drink Dr. Pepper a lot; but not so much anymore It is my favorite soft drink.
I haven't been to Houston before but would like to some time. I had a friend's daughter who served in that mission. Happy you can have some rest time here and there.
Blessings for continued fun!
