I had the car packed the night before so all I had to do was load up our food and the boys. We got up early and were on the road by 4:30am. The boys were so excited to be travelling, they stayed awake for an hour or two but fell fast asleep during the long drive to Albuqerque. About half way we stopped at a rest stop and this was the view. The sun was just starting to peek up and there was a lone tree perfectly silhouetted.
The next day we headed for Dallas. Just before Amarillo, Texas there is a fun stop called Cadillac Ranch. A bunch of cadillac’s buried out in a farm field. It was the perfect place to stop and stretch our legs.
Ethan was very concerned that the spray paint cans were littering the field, and decided he wanted to gather them up…ALL of them… (there are hundreds of cans everwhere). After gathering up about thirty of them, I finally convinced them that they couldn’t get them all and that we needed to continue our trip.
They tried spraying some bottles that still had a bit in them. Joshua got a good spray right in the face- fortunately it was mostly fumes and not paint.
It was an entertaining stop- if you’ve ever driven across west Texas, there’s pretty much sky and that’s it. Texas
