Road Trip

So Maya and I thought we would take a little road trip this past weekend to visit family in Amarillo, Tx. We left on Saturday morning.... and really didn't warn anyone that we were coming so after our 2 hour drive we rent a hotel room (with an indoor pool of course) and call Grandpa Jerry and the twins, Maya's 13 year old twin cousins Holiday and Jericha and of course there little sister Blondie (Journey) who is 11 like Maya so they basically cant do anything without the other. The most exciting part is that we also get to meet the littlest cousin Keira (the prettiest baby!!!) and my baby brother Jacobs girlfriend Jennifer.
So we basically spend our evening at the hotel so all the kids can swim which was fine with me since our room was right across from the pool so I could watch the kids from the room and not have to worry about two 11yr olds and 2 13 yr olds thinking that they are funny and splashing.. lol.... Sooo anyway around midnight I let the girls know that I will hang them from their toes if they open the door to the hotel and get some much needed sleep.... I have no clue when they went to sleep but when I woke up the room was in perfect order (mostly) ..... sorry housekeeping...lol
So since Lubbock doesn't have a Red Robin restaurant we decide we will go there since kids eat free all day everyday and I have 4 with me!! Red Robin a perfect family place WHY DO WE NOT HAVE ONE OF THESE IN LUBBOCK????? Lubbock is full on places to eat... since that is all there is to do around here... but no red robin???? Anyway if you get to go there try the Freckled Lemonade... its really good and comes in the cutest glass!! After dinner the kids wanna go to Cadillac Ranch to spray paint cars.... for those who don't know what this is .. its a place on historic Route 66 with old Cadillacs buried in the ground and you can spray paint them ... its kinda fun (google it lol) well the weather wasn't that great.. cold and sprinkly..... so we decided to go the zoo instead... I know its outside too but I have no sense... hehe..... but it was fun and Grandpa Jerry went with us and we got to spent some quality time with grandpa and the girls enjoyed making fun of the way grandpa talks... (if anyone watches King of the Hill think Boomhauer) He's from Texas and it is very obvious... but we love him!! Ok so after all of that we went to Uncle jakes and jens to play with baby Keira and it was time to head back home again.... so as we are dropping off the twins and Journey @ home we get a call from Lubbock telling me that there bad weather head that way!!! GREAT I get freaked out in the wind... but luckily the weather was fine all the way to Lubbock and only started to rain about a mile from my house!! WOO HOO... thank goodness... NE way that was Mayas and my weekend.... too fun hanging out with my nieces... now its back work for me and school for M boo hoo.... i will add pics later....
