There seemed to be quite a few bathroom breaks today and we had to communicate via my Dad's cell phone today between cars due to the fact that I left my phone charger somewhere in Arizona. For the first pit stop, I asked my Dad to call Daddy O who was driving in front of us to pull off at the next gas station. My Dad dialed the number, and as soon as he heard the phone pick up said, Hey we need a potty break! Unfortunately he had dialed the wrong number and the person on the other end let him know it. We had a good laugh about that!
Today was full of entertainment from my Dad or Chief as the boys refer to him-he told all the old stories I remembered and a few new ones. The hours were filled with different forms of I spy and other games and I'm glad that the boys got to experience my Dad in fun 'travel mode'. We will all be sad to see him leave tomorrow.
Here is Boy O in Pecos, Texas-he is fascinated with cactus and this was right next to the gas station where we made a much needed pit stop.
We ate lunch in Ozona, Texas where there was a Davy Crockett monument. Boy O is a big fan of the old Davy Crockett movies (thanks Dad!) and this was the highlight of the day (besides the pool later on).
Even though we were on the road for eight hours, the miles seemed to go by fast and before we knew it, Hill Country was upon us. In the blink of an eye, our road trip is ending and although I will be so excited to see our washing machine and dryer tomorrow (hopefully), I will be sad to say goodbye to my Dad and the break from the ol' grind. It's been a great ride but it's time to go back to reality, I guess.
