Once we hit Amarillo, I pulled out the PB & J stuff and started making sandwiches on my lap and passing them back one by one. Let's just say that the kids weren't too keen on Amarillo. No, let me rephrase that. They loved the "Wow! Look. Black and White cows!!" and "I didn't know there were black and white cows!". It stunk as we whizzed by, but after hearing their excitement with seeing black and white cows, I had to roll down my window to get a picture. Thing is, I knew it would stink and thought it would be funny. What I didn't realize was exactly how BAD the smell would be. S has a bionic nose so she was hilarious. The boys were furious and I giggled and giggled trying not to get sick myself. So, the cows were a thumbs up to my city kids and the smell, well, they'd rather not have smelled it.
Just leaving Amarillo we spotted a military heli-plane. Or is it a Air-icopter?
Then we saw the first of many windmill things. They are gigantic. Just one propeller thing is longer than a semi. Okay, lay off the whole "thing" thing. I don't know what they are called. :)
I loved the graffiti on the train cars.
And $3.19 for gas? That's over fifty cents cheaper than back here at home.
Next stop? Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
