Cadillac Ranch

Some friends came to visit on a very windy day and we took them to see this odd tourist site.
The Cadillac Ranch was built in 1974 by Helium millionare Stanley Marsh. It is a collection of 10 Cadillacs buried nose down facing West. It is in the middle of a field just off I-40 (Route 66) West of Amarillo. So, if you're looking for quirky, this is it.

Henry is growing so fast. He and Lily are becoming great friends. Lily plays with him all the time. At first, she wasn't sure about having a new dog in the house. She has quickly grown to like him. They play together everyday and can often be found in the kitchen chasing each other around.

Soccer Season Comes To An End

Hayden just finished his first soccer season ever. He loved it. It was a lot of fun to watch him play. I'm sure he'll play again, but he is really looking forward to basketball.

Meet the Buffs...

West Texas A&M University recently had a basketball camp for FREE! All the Buffs and Lady Buffs came out on a Saturday to play with the kids and teach them some ball handling skills. I thought I might drop the kids off and come back later to get them. NO! Once I was there, I couldn't make myself leave. There is something still in me that LOVES basketball. I'm quickly approaching 40. I thought I would have outgrown it by now, but I haven't. So, we all had a great time! Hayden and Rachel thought it was really cool to meet the players, the coaches and to play where the Buffs and Lady Buffs actually play.

Did I say I love living in a small town? This is just one reason why. No other town we've ever lived in has done anything like this. I LOVE it!

High School Football

We have so enjoyed being back in the Texas Panhandle. Friday nights during football season have been spent with every other person in our small the bleachers! We bought season passes for all the home games and had a great time watching the Eagles play ball. Tonight was the last regular season game and the Eagles finished undefeated in district play. It was a close game and very exciting to watch.
