El Paso Trip: Day Eight

So this day we had to get up at the crack of dawn because we still had a 5 hour drive ahead of us and we had to return the van by 12 noon or pay for 2 more days. (side note, my whole adult life, I swore that I would NEVER by a van driver, but I will admit that after driving one for a week I now see the benefits of driving such a lame vehicle and there is probably a van sometime in my future.)

So we were on the road by 6am. And the most remarkable part of this trip is my husbands fascination with the wind mills along the way. He is absolutely enamored with them. He went so far as to say that they were "majestic". And when we chuckled about it he went on a 20 minute rant about how "it's like the past connecting with the future"(past - windmills have been around forever, future windmills could potentially provide us with our primary source of power) and how he would like to have a wind farm someday. Wow, I mean, I'm all about cleaner sources of power, but I'm not going to marry a windmill. Ha ha - Just kidding babe, you can't marry a windmill anyway - you're married to me!

So now back to what's really important. Eating. Once we got home, we rested awhile and then went out to eat with our good friend Gale and. . . .
Melissa came too!
Here is a very sleepy Juliana.

And here we are.
And after dinner it was off to Freddies for frozen custard.
Don't worry, we only ate this way because we were on vacation. We are now officially on a diet. Wish us luck!
