Road Trip Update

Hi from Albuquerque, NM!

We started out on Monday from St. Louis and got as far as Joplin, MO. We stopped in Meramac Caverns in Stanton, MO. I remembered going there when I was a kid and being so amazed by it. But you know how when you go back to visit your elementary school, and everything seems to small? Similar thing. But it was still pretty cool. Overpriced for what it was, but nature does do her thing, and it is pretty neat.

We spent Tuesday going from Joplin to Amarillo, TX, stopping at the Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma City. U-Dad and I could have spent more time there. It was really interesting! But with two small kids, you do your thing and keep moving. Such is life.

We had Texas-shaped waffles in Amarillo this a.m. and are now at U-Dad's father's and stepmom's in ABQ. They have finally met Urban Kid 2! And U-Kid 1 and her grandma are getting re-aquainted fast.

The FIL and wife are very busy this time of year -- they sell shaved ice at festivals all over the area -- but we're wiggling in a little bit of their time. If we get really crazy, maybe we'll go work for them. I'm intrigued by the idea, but also hear Bon Qui Qui from MadTV saying, "but don't get crazy." (youtube it if you're unfamiliar. i would link, but am on the fly. worth the view, i promise!)

Ok, gotta run. More as I get time on a computer. Seems that hotels all offer free wi-fi because everyone today travels with a laptop, I guess. We're sooooo 2007.

I took the map off of the sidebar because it wasn't working to update it. Grumblegrumblegrumble.

Happy Summer!

I can just see you and the kids (or at least my mental images of you and the kids) hawking shaved ice....

The kids love eating at hotels in Texas, b/c of the waffles! Texas is just about the only state that can pull that off. Kansas shaped waffles? Eh, hard to notice, really.

Texas shaped waffles?? That sounds amazing!

oh how I love Bon Qui Qui... so much wisdom. I think she'd approve of selling shaved ice so long as you don't get any complicated orders.
