Road Trip!

Spring break, so Jess and I are headed west. Spring break this year is Grand Canyon. Here are some pics from our first (long) day on the road. Hubby and I drive by this place on some of our travels for my job. This has to be the most evil chili I have ever seen.



Here is a giant windmill farm. I love these things. They kind of look like they are dancing.



Then we stopped in Amarillo for lunch. This is the place where you can get a 72 ounce steak, small salad, baked potato, shrimp cocktail, and roll free if you can eat it in an hour. While we were there they had three guys from Cushing, Oklahoma, attempting this feat. I think they came close, but no cigar. This actually draws quite a crowd around the glutton wannabes. I don't know if people think they are going to actually witness someone accomplishing it, but I would be afraid I would see projectile . . . well, you get the picture.



And then in Tucumcari (which creeped hubby and me out a couple of years ago) I got to see the Route 66 sculpture.



Now we are chilling in Las Cruces and going to pick up my friend, Mary, in the morning. Then we're going to El Paso to show Jess where she was born, her first house, and all that cool stuff. After that, on to Albuquerque where we will get to see my nephew's new baby (who hasn't arrived yet, but is, after 30 something hours making her mother wish she would). Then on down Route 66 to Winslow, Arizona, where we will be taking pictures on the corner.
