Steve told the kids what happened and I think he was even more disappointed than the kids although they would have loved to fly and see everything. Of course, Helen has been up there working since the 1st of February so that was another side issue for Steve.
Anyway, Tuesday we headed over to Six Flags to get some use out of our season passes. It took us quite a while to get there as traffic was at a crawl due to an accident. Once we finally got there, the parking lot was fuller than we have ever seen it.....all the way out to the road. We drove closer to the actual entrance and there was a line of people over a block long just waiting to get into the park. Scratch that idea. The kids were fine with that as they could see the line too. We ended up spending the afternoon up at Gruene which the kids also enjoyed. Wednesday is a blur right now but I know we did something.
Thursday we headed back to Six Flags early so we would be there when they opened at 10:30AM. We got in without much of a delay at all. Steve and Cameron headed off to the big rides like the Iron Rattler while Morgan and I headed further back into the park. We were really looking forward to riding the train. It was shut down.....hmmmm.....that happened the last time we were here to so we went on further back. Morgan drove the bumper cars.
Cameron and Steve caught up to us there. The lines for the big rides were huge and not moving fast at all. Since the huge crowds hadn't arrived yet, that was kind of hard to understand. Steve rode on the planes with Morgan.
We all hit the Merry-go-round several times. Morgan was in her element and Cameron was being a good sport.
Cameron opted out of the swings saying they make him sick and I knew they were not for me.
Saturday. the kids wanted to go to the Farmers Market at New Braunfels. They have booths with vegetables but lots of other booths too. Cameron and Steve had tamales. Morgan had some homemade yogurt that you drink from a booth she really likes. I had a fresh croissant and coffee.
Lots of people bring their dogs so of course Angus was with us. They have a band playing music, booths with crafts, food, vegetables, etc., so it is a great family event.
About the time we were ready to leave, I remembered it was the third weekend of the month which meant it was Market Days in Gruene so we headed on out there and checked out all the activity there too.
Steve and Helen put so much planning into making this a really special Spring Break but Mother Nature intervened. I guess it was just as well they couldn't get the tickets rebooked because the high was about 40 degrees out there all week and neither Steve or the kids have clothes for that kind of weather. We scrambled for fun stuff to do all week and even then we had to go the Plan B several times. It all worked out okay in spite of everything and the kids both said they had a fun week. I know I really enjoyed the extra time with them.
