I would have to say after 6 days in the car, that although the kids were tired, they did AWESOME! All in all very few meltdowns on the road, they were great when we stopped & when it was time to load up again. I know you all know this, but my kids are the best in the whole world!!! :)))
Now we are gonna enjoy our time with all of our family. Passing the time until daddy gets home - 1 month down; 6 to go!

Holy COWS! Literally! Everywhere, cows & oil dereks! Nothing says Texas like cows & oil dereks!
We left out of El Paso 2 hours earlier than we had because we knew this day was gonna be a long one. Not only were we trying to go over 450 miles but through part of the most BORING parts of the country! Nothing to look at, no where to stop (or pee for that matter!). Although, Graham & I being the dorks that we are, were very excited about seeing Odessa & Midland & all those other places they mention in the Texas highschool football movies! I was looking for James Van Der Beek (Dawson from Dawson's Creek - he played one of the heroes in one of those movies...)!! But to no avail, only cows, oil dereks, & a lot of wind turbines - which Logan called windmeals!!
All in all an AWESOME day! A lot of road covered, only minor meltdowns occured, and the kids are adjusting to the time changes very well. Hoping that tomorrow we have the same luck!!

Peyton takes her art VERY seriously, had to pick the exact right picture to color
And to think mommy thought she was smart getting the twistable crayons so they wouldn't break them...
At the Holiday Inn Express in Tucson, AZ - Always love a ride on the luggage cart!
