I'm so excited we leave tomorrow for a weekend trip to New Braunfels then back to San Marcos. Me, Vica, Ashely (one of Vica's best friends), and Patty (Ashley's mom).

First, we're headed over to Texas Natural Bridge Caverns, where we'll go 180 feet below ground to see some of the most beautiful natural formations. That will take us about 3 - 4 hours to see and enjoy.

Second, we head over to San Marcos and enjoy a Glass Bottom boat tour at the Aquarena. The tour will takes about 30 minutes and we will see Bluegill Sunfish, Channel Catfish, Soft Shell turtles. Then visit the Aquarium.

Third, on Sunday we'll visit Wonder World Park. Where we'll visit another cavern where we'll go 400 ft below ground. We'll see the nation’s only true example of an EARTHQUAKE-FORMED CAVE. We will stand between the Edwards Plateau and the Gulf Coastal Plains, viewing a phenomenon of detachment where the earth’s surface was shaped around 30 million years ago. From the bottom of Wonder Cave we will exit Wonder World Cave by the “Stratavator”, from the bottom of the cave. The shaft was created for the exiting of the cave and for the viewing of the many geological strata formations. We are going to travel 190 feet upwards into the Observation Museum in the Sky to see views of the dramatic shifting during the Earthquake and the formation of the Balcones Fault Line Cave. This tour will take approx 4 hours as well.

I know that we are going to have so much fun. I'll post pictures when I get back. :)
