I Heart Texas

Arle and I decided to take a fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants road trip to Texas.  So, yesterday we hopped in the car and off we went to visit our friends Virginia and Luke and their two sweet little boys.

I’ve wanted to attempt this drive for quite some time, but never actually had the nerve to do it until now.  The 8-hour trip wasn’t bad at all.  Arle did great due to the massive amounts of movies and snacks I had on hand.  I typically hate driving and prefer to fly, but I managed ok…although my hiney was freakin’ out a bit after sitting for such a long time.

In the end, I was actually thrilled that we drove because I was having so much fun driving on these fabulous Texas highways.

70 mph on a two-lane hilly, curvy road???

Yes, please!

I’ve forgotten how much fun it is to drive in this neck o’ the woods!  I felt like a race car driver.  Plus, everybody waves at you as you pass ’em on the road!  Such friendly folks, these Texans are.

I promptly called Trav and told him we are moving.  He said I’m crazy.

Maybe I am, ya’ll.  Maybe I am.

    Ahem! Due to my extensive knowledge of geography, I happen to know which state you have to drive through to get from Kansas to Texas. I also happen to know that one very loving aunt lives in said state and was not notified of the drive through. Hmph.

    I’m so jealous that you are within driving distance of Luke and Virginia! I “heart” Texas a little more each year that I’m away. We’ll move if you do! ;)

    I love Texas too, but if you want Travis to let you take another road trip, you might be a little less informative about your driving skills, Mario…Love.

    Yea for Texas!!! After spending the weekend in Delaware, where it is cold and the people are not too friendly, I was longing for Texas. We got off of the plane to 43 degree weather, but it felt like a heat wave after Delaware. I heart Texas too!
