Dublin Trip, Finally

Well I finally found my memory card that has the pictures from our trip to Dublin, so I can finally share them with you!

 The whole reason for our trip to Dublin, TX was to visit the Old Doc Soda Shop. Home of the Dublin Dr Pepper Museum. In case you are not aware, I am a Pepper :)

 In front of the building is a statue, "Sweet Inspirations" depicting the plant's owner, Bill Kloster -- "Mr. Dr Pepper" -- offering a bottle of Dr. Pepper to a little girl.
 Inside the Soda Shop is all the Dr Pepper memorabilia you could imagine!
 Hubby with his new hat because he too is a Pepper, why do you think I married him?
 As part of our trip we took a tour of the bottling plant. Our tour guide is showing us the bottle washer.
 These are the drinks this plant bottles.
 Yum! So much Dr. Pepper!
 These are the bottles coming out of the bottle washer.
 These are the bottles after they have been filled and capped.
 Each bottle passes this marker to mark on the lid. They change the color once a month so they can sell all of the older ones before selling the ones with the new colored lids.

 They had some great & unique stuff!
Frosty Peppers, Dr. Pepper blended with Ice Cream - So good!

 Once a year the name of the city is changed to Dr. Pepper, TX in honor of the anniversary of the Old Doc Soda Shop.
 Dr Pepper time, 10, 2, 4 - The time you should have a Dr Pepper :)
 Mural on the Soda Shop.
 The Soda Shop is on the corner of Elm & Patrick, we found this especially cool because one those streets is Hubby's name...I'll let you guess which street :)
 Through the whole city you can see evidences of their preferred drink :)

 While in Dublin we also went to the Dublin Historical Museum.

 After leaving Dublin we stopped at a small family owned cheese farm & these are calves outside of the farm.
 They were so adorable!
Look at those beautiful big eyes!
And finally this is the hotel we stayed at in Stevenville, TX.

We had a great time on our trip to Dublin! Glad I could finally share it with you :)
