Day One with the Grand Boys
We picked them up in Waco, had lunch at McDonalds and then went to the Dr. Pepper Museum. It was interesting and we all enjoying seeing the processing equipment. Once we got home we rested for a while then headed to the pool. Of course it is never dull. There was a big black dog running around outside the pool and he headed straight to the busy highway in front of the pool. A few seconds later we heard a horn honk and heard a crash. I just knew the dog had been hit but he came running back around the corner. The car that slammed into the back of a trailer, trying to avoid hitting the dog was not so lucky. We just got settled and into the water and the "rain" came. No thunder so the kids stayed in the water. Of course the rain lasted 5 minutes and was gone. After swimming we ate supper, played Wii fit and then waited until it was really dark and drove to the haunted Hutto bridge. You can read about it here Once we found it, we had to turn around several times to wait for cars to pass. Turned the lights off, put the car in neutral and sure enough, away we roll. The boys were amazed and scared at the same time!
