New Braunfels Trip - Part 1 - Landa Park

We had such a great trip to New Braunfels this weekend, so great that I am splitting it into 2 post. We had such a fun filled two days, everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was a much needed trip. We had good luck with the weather, it was a little hot, but not as hot as it has been. I have so many pictures, will not be able to post all 112 of them :) What can I say, I like taking pictures, so here are just SOME highlights!

Saturday morning we left the house at 6:30am with the kids in tow and the car packed for Landa Park. It is a beautiful city park on the river with spring fed swimming pools, water slides, picnic areas, playgrounds, train ride, and paddle boats. My brother and his family were able to join us and so was Matt's friend and his son who is close to Katherine's age. It was great to spend quality time all together.

Katherine loved swimming in both pools and going down the smallest slide, she had no desire to go down the bigger blue slide. On the other hand, Colin loved the blue slide, the two of us went down it about 12 times. Each time we got off, he would look at me with a big grin and say "AGAIN"! Colin liked the choo-choo and both kids loved the paddle boat.
On the beginning of the road trip, Buc-ees is a large gas station\store, Katherine just had to have her picture with Buc-ee!Wee.. down the water slide we go!Matt and Colin ready to go swimming!Katherine playing in the pool fed with water from the Comal River, which stays a constant 72 degrees.Uncle Russell and Colin having their picnic lunch by the water. Colin is saying "CHEEESSEEEAnother slide, smaller, but just as fun!Ready for the choo-choo ride. The train goes all through the park and along the river Kannon's first train ride!Katherine HAD to sit next to Turner!
What a beautiful day, beautiful park, and wonderful family time!Colin is oh so ready for his boat ride!Colin decided he needed to be the captain, not just a passenger!Katherine enjoying her ride while daddy and Tim paddled them around.View from the paddle boats

It looked like Jennifer enjoyed the water slides as much as Colin! I did not realize they had so much at Landa Park...looks like the place to go with small kids and those young at heart.
