Wednesday, July 18, 2007 slice of heaven on the Guadalupe River!

I have very fond memories of going to Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels as a child, and I am excited to share this beautiful waterpark with Rusty in a few weeks! We took Chuck & Audrey a few years ago...I probably should have prepared Clark for exactly "what" Schlitterbahn is. It's not a concrete jungle with chlorinated water at every spot. It's a tree shaded, spring-water fed, historical water park! It's almost like they plopped rides & slides in the middle of nature & next to the river. What could be better?

Unfortunately, this was NOT what Clark was expecting, so his version of Schlitterbahn is "It's dirty!".

So Grammie and I will be taking Rusty while Clark hangs out at Grammie's house for the day. We can't wait!!!
Hugs to all-

Thanks Ellen

Howdy Folks,
Clark Griswold here...These will be our best adventures ever.
Ellen, Audrey, Rusty...Get in the car, We have a schedule to maintain....Hey, where the hell is Chuck !!!

Ellen doesn't want me to do this, but I feel we are close so I will let you know a little something about Ellen. Ellen is a musical genius and was something of a savant in her high school band.

In fact, Rusty's middle name is Trombone.

Keep checking our site for my new feature, Griswold family secrets....


Since I always want to Blog while Clark & I have our vacations, but fear someone will read our regular Blog & realize our house is sittinig empty...I've created this semi-anonymous blog. This way, while we travel 'round the country or globe with Rusty & Audrey (and sometimes our lesser-known Griswold college sibling Chuck)I can Blog while we're gone & not worry!

Our next adventure departs in September...Clark & I are taking Rusty to Myrtle Beach for a week. I'll only update this blog while we it won't be the daily updates I aim for on our regular blog sites!

Hope throwing a 3rd Family Blog your way isn't too much...

I need to go wash the Family Truckster. All this rain lately has left too much dirt. Until we hit the road again...
Hugs to all-
Ellen G.
