On our way back we got to ride the train the whole way and we loved it! We sat in the observation cart and checked out the views. I read, we slept, and we played Phase 10.

Train ride!🚂 #10yrs4TheAmes
Beau & I had been planning a train ride to San Antonio for out 10th anniversary. We were SO excited! We got word from Amtrak when we were almost to our first train that our train from Fort Worth to San Antonio had been delayed 8 hours! WHAT!?!?! We got on our 1st train at Ardmore. I got another call from Amtrak saying our train is 9 hours delayed so they were going to put us on a charter bus to San Antonio. We were NOT happy! We got to Fort Worth and the Amtrak lady immediatley took us to our bus. I politley explained to her, trying to to cry that it was our 10 year anniversary and we came to ride the train. She said, "ma'am, there is no train coming today." I tried not to cry as we stepped on to the bus and to our surprise we thought it was some kind of joke. It was a charter bus, it was a party bus! It was full of people from all over the world. People from Australia, England, New York, & California. It had a dancing pole and lights all over. We all made jokes about it the whole time and ended up having a great time with the people on it. We have actually already gotten an e-mail from the Australlian couple who were on a 6 month long vacation, going all over the world. We all kept waiting for someone to come out and say we were on T.V. and we had been punked or something. lol!
