Ahh Texas!

So we made it here . . . all in one piece! The road trip was not bad at all. We had to make a few adjustments the second day. Sterling, Asher, and I had to adjust to Myles frequent outbursts of just yelling at the top of his lungs! He wasn't much of a traveling companion.

We went through Colorado on the way down. I LOVED it. I LOVED it. It was like the Utah scenery but with more greenery. I would love to live there . . . especially in Vale. I loved the mountains, the rafting, the trails. Humm, maybe someday.

I also saw some incredible scenery on the way to Texas. I wanted so badly to take pictures but it seemed like I was always driving when the photo opps came. So I will write it down so that I don't forget. I loved the hay bales . . . all rolled up in the fields. I loved the old windmills. The kind that have a "fin" on the side. I loved seeing the old oil rigs also. It is so weird because I grew up in Texas but I never appreciated the simple beauty in these objects. Now, coming back for the first time in 7 years, I just love the country style of it all. I love seeing the wide open spaces with the sun covering all of fields. So, hopefully I will be able to take some snap shots on my way home.

Today my mom and I went and got some pedicures. Ahhh, nice. It was so relaxing to sit in the massage chair and have someone else take care of me.

I totally hate that - When you're driving somewhere and it's hard to stop but you see the best photo op. :p ... I spent about 2 years living in Kansas, so I'm also very fond of windmills! :)

Keep enjoying your trip!
