Great American Road Trip - Day 9

We thought that a long drive through the western 2/3 of Texas would be boring... boy were we wrong.

We had a birthday boy -- Squeaker is TWO!!!

We had an almost traffic ticket. So, here is what you should not do.... when you are following someone going over the speed limit (7 miles over, mind you) you should not maintain that speed, too. Also, if they get pulled over, you should not pull over too... just ditch them. When you do pull over, the trooper will come tell you that he is going to give you a ticket as well since you were following someone who was speeding, therefore speeding yourself. Oops. Anyway, he was nice and let us go -- maybe it was the screaming two year old in the backseat because stopping woke him up from his nap and now the sun was in his eyes.

Dinner is not enough... must eat markers. Who was the dummy that put markers within his reach?



Other than that, pretty uneventful and now we are done in Texas, finally.
