On the way from La Grange to San Felipe de Austin, we passed through New Ulm, where my great grandfather is buried. Driving around outside the park, we came across the San Felipe de Austin Historic Site. We wound up making a trip back to New Ulm to see if we could locate the gravesite.
When we went to Rosenburg, we passed through Richmond and saw the Fort Bend Museum. We went back and made a day out of it, starting at the Sandy McGees and continuing the search for the best cheeseburger.
Our bucket list – and it’s long – has had the Presidential libraries on it for a while. We have seen Clinton’s library together, and we wanted to see the G.H.W. Bush Presidential Library Center in College Station while we were in Livingston. The detour got in the way a little bit, but we thought we might get a weekend off before treatments started. However, since College Station is 90 minutes away, we had to find a way to take care of Sugar, Izzy, and little Pepper.
Heather and Jose wanted to join us for lunch, so we met at the Ol’ Rail Road Cafe in Rosenburg. I had seen the Rosenburg Railroad Museum on the map, and since ElizaBeth and I are always early wherever we go, we swung by there before lunch.
