Gruene is a small, historical part of New Braunfels. And while Luis and I have driven through many times, we have never stopped. This time we wanted to explore the many shops and restaurants.
We ate at the famous Gristmill restaurant and it was as delicious as I had hoped. We stopped for ice cream at the General store and got lattes from the local coffee shop.
Two weeks later and I still can't stop thinking about our time there.
Before heading home, we drove through Santa's Ranch, which was basically just a huge field of Christmas lights. The girls loved it and then all three kids slept the whole 4 hour drive home.
I throw the world "tradition" around a lot, but this is one we have decided we need to make stick.
