A quick get away!

Yesterday we drove a couple of hours north to meet our friends who where driving through Amarillo. There is nothing like spending time with old friends! We had the best time doing the tourist things there... We went to Cadillac Ranch on route 66 and painted cars

We went to the Big Texan Steak house... our kids were very afraid their dad's were going to try to eat the 72 ounce steak that is free if you can eat it...

We were glad they didn't try it... They did however, make us try Calf fries...Under great pressure I gave in and tried one bite... it didn't taste bad but I couldn't get past the idea of it!!!! Mike also got the kids to try them and didn't tell them what they were till today... that was pretty funny.

We spent a lot of time at the hotel pool.

Today when they had to continue on their trip, we headed home but went through Palo Duro canyon on the way. It was a great trip to have only been about 24 hours and our last little outing of the summer!
