The end of our Texas summer Adventure 2006
We left Alpine on Wednesday morning - 12 hours later we were still in Texas! and not even half way home! Bob Will's song "I can see miles and miles of Texas" is going round and round in my head. Another night in a hotel and our journey continues. We went on a couple of treasure hunts along the route home. One, of which, was in the middle of some big town, that we couldn't easily locate. Do you think we would stop for directions? Maybe we can say its "the Martin curse or carma". Stubborn and determined is that of my better half---an hour later the treasure was found. And off we go again. The Tarheel girl was a huge help with driving as well as keeping dad awake in the wee hours of the morning. Where was I? Why in the back seat - for three days long- tending to a baby! :) Thank goodness the other two children were occupied!-movies, a new cell phone, an IPOD, Game boy, Su Do Ku!
We arrived home safe and sound at about 4:30 in the morning. A quick little nap and off to work I went. Tim had to work that night. Upon returning from work that day we had to get Brittney loaded up to return to UNC that weekend. Wow! Life stays busy! A great vacation, and then reality quickly sets in!
