Because we had planned to stop - but didn't know when - and didn't expect that the kids would all fall asleep before we did ultimately retire for the day - and then didn't expect that we would use the opportunity to KEEP DRIVING while they were asleep - we didn't put the triplets in diapers because doing such would wake them up. As a result of our poor planning, two of three soaked their carseats.
Fortunately, they dry rather quickly when it's 97 degrees.
We woke up this morning and had a nice breakfast before taking the kids down to the hotel swimming pool. This was the last picture that was taken by a three-year-old boy who hijacked his mother's camera off the table, before he dropped it in to a hot tub.
Fortunately, I have two cameras or else this photo would be the last one posted on this journey.
We've been driving through scattered showers today which is nice because in the 120 miles we've driven since leaving our hotel this morning, our windshield had become caked with bugs. Thus far on our trip, Mississippi and Louisiana boasts the most freeway bugs. Soft ones that SPLAT and hard ones that TINK. Some are so big we cringe and yell "Ewww!! What WAS that?!"
We just crossed over in to Texas and I got me a cravin' for some BBQ and catfish.
Charlie keeps saying that he wants to stop and eat a 100-oz steak, but after passing this truck hauling cows, I don't think that I can ever eat meat again.
According to our Cheif Navigator, we should be able to make it to El Paso by tonight.
I'm not so sure about that.
I think my husband has a better chance of eating five pounds worth of beef in one sitting.
