Half Way There....

So, we headed out yesterday afternoon for the snowy mountains of Santa Fe. We got to Amarillo, TX at about 10pm and stopped at a hotel. Actually, we stopped at 4 hotels before we found one that had a room available. It is such an easy drive from our town to Santa Fe. You literally get on the interstate and never turn or change until you reach Santa Fe. I read an entire book on the drive here. The Reader. The book was sooo good and now I can't wait to go see the movie! The girls are such good travelers. This trip is 10 hours total, so it is cake compared to our last ski trip to Colorado that took 13 hours, or the trip to Destin that t00k a little over 12. DVD players and Nintendo DS's have changed the world of traveling by car for kids. My brother and I used to fight like crazy when we were stuck in the car together on long trips. We would draw an imaginary line down the middle of the seat that the other couldn't cross, then we would cross to make each other mad. Ha! Those were the days.
Anyway, we will head out of here soon for Santa Fe. I can't wait to see it. I am not skiing (not for me) but I have heard that Santa Fe is a beautiful place to visit, so I'm looking forward to that.
No pictures to post now, but I will post tonight...hopefully!
love to tha peeps

Joel wanted to go Skiing so bad but it is not for me either. I am sure we will go one day but I am hoping I am able to get him to hold off for a few more years! I can't wait to see pictures! I am sure it is so pretty!
