Texas was a blast. We visited Grandma and Grandpa (Ben was approved!). Got in some good Kaylee time. Spent time with my mom and cat. Ben discovered Academy. We partied with the Van Leeuwen's. I met Ben's aunts--Kathy and Jane. We had Blue Bell. We tried to pack in as many things as we could and made lots of memories.
On the road again.
Texas roads. The beauty ended at the New Mexico border. I looked at Ben and said, "Take me back!"
After we stayed in a not so nice hotel on the ride down to Texas, Ben booked the number 3 rated motel/hotel in Albaquerque for us. And...it was cheaper than the Farmington nightmare hotel. It was significantly cleaner and the perfect stop.
On the trip back I decided we needed a break, kind of like our Cadillac Ranch excursion. Ben had never been to Four Corners and since it was only 20 minutes out of our way, so we went! Ben was in four places at once!
Both of us at Four Corners! The little stop had changed so much since I went there. Now the Native Americans had little booths to sell there jewelry and souvenirs at rather than little wooden shacks. We walked around and stretched our legs for a little bit. Then Ben and I jumped in the car and headed back to Provo.
While it appears that our trip went smoothly. The way back to Provo was rather exciting...
