Our first day!

well, we made it through or into 3 states today and we didn't kill each other or leave anybody at a rest stop. The rest of West Texas was pretty much the same as Lubbock. Lots and lots and lots of nothing but fields. There were some pretty stinky towns, such as Amherst. Who knew that cows could smell that bad. Wel, I guess if you have a million of them together, they can't help but smell. Whew, it was really bad. New Mexico has a lot of nothing too, But mixed in were some assorted mountain look-alikes. In Colorado, of course, the scenery got more interesting. The mountains were really pretty. We stopped at a neat diner, similar to the Pumpjack Diner, in Wichita Falls. We all had breakfast for dinner. It was great. The waitress asked if we were from around here! It was just like in the movies! Then she asked where we were from and where we were headed. She told us that she was going to guess by our accent that we were from Tennessee! I laughed. We don't sound anything like Tennesseans. (Is that a word?) It was a good breakfast. The kids enjoyed the motel we stayed at. It had an indoor pool and hot tub. So we all had a good swim before bed. I don't know what it is about being away from home, but I can't sleep in! I still woke up before 7 am!
Well, today we leave out for Utah. We will be driving through part of Wyoming and then head to Salt Lake City. More to come later.
