Life Is a Highway

We've pretty much been in the car and driving yesterday and today. 8 hr drives (or so) each day. It feels so good to get out of the car at the end of the day!

We left San Antonio and made it to Amarillo last night. Stopped in some little town somewhere and ate authentic mexican food for Father's Day. I think the town was San Angelo. They had really good chicken tacos. Plus I saw a few real cowboys - hats, boots and all! :) Then my husband finally let me drive for him for awhile. :) He spent some time teaching my daughter how to solve the Rubic's cube while I drove.

Ran across a dry thunderstorm outside of Amarillo which was very pretty.

Today we left Amarillo and drove to Cortez, Colorado. We stopped in Albequerque for lunch at Cecellia's Cafe. The food was good but they didn't seem to have indoor bathrooms (which I really needed after a long car ride) so that was "no bueno."

We actually made it to Cortez early evening which is rare for us. We had some time so were going to go look at some trading posts, etc. They were all closed and it was only 6pm! Bummer. So we are relaxing a bit in the motel room - which is also nice. We seem to have been going non-stop this trip and relaxation is coveted.

Tomorrow we go into the Cortez cliff dwellings. I'm really looking forward to it. I think it will be a neat experience.

Then we head onto the Grand Canyon. Heard there is a fire near Flagstaff so we need to do some checking to see if it will interfere with our plans at all. And from the Grand Canyon - we head on home. It's been a blast, but I can't wait to sleep in my own bed again!
