Do you remember our last two train ride attempts? One ended in the Grand Canyon being closed by the federal government and then earlier this year we rode the Austin Steam train which ended with us sitting on the tracks and then riding backwards by to the train station b/c of another train having an electrical fire.
This past weekend was our make-up train ride to Burnet and Mimi and PawPaw took the kids so Ben and I could do some home improvements. This trip had it share of woes too as Central Texas was under flash flood warnings yesterday. The train ride happened, but when they arrived at the station in Burnet, they had to stay on the train for two hours as it was pouring rain. Thankfully, we had been on the train earlier this year and we knew to pack snacks and books. It was a long day, but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
