Day in Review:
A nice day for a drive. Some of us (namely Mom and Sis) were sick and tired of driving, but today was a mite bit shorter than our other segments. Passing through El Paso, we looked to our right and saw the lovely picture of Ciduad Juarez (which wasn't very pretty), but we were gone soon enough. Our friends in SoCal warned us that the US Customs & Border Protection checkpoint might give us some trouble because of the size of our Sprinter passenger van, but we got through with only a rudimentary "How many people in the vehicle?" and "Ya'll US citizens?" thank goodness.

We had a smooth ride to Midland after that, stopping in Van Horn for a quick bite from Wendy's. Had a bit of trouble finding the hotel since 10000 Airport Road doesn't exist, but got to it eventually. Then we had dinner with our friend's relatives who lived in Midland. It was an enjoyable experience, mingling with them and learning about living in the Midwest. Us kids then had a sleepover with their son, Tristen. We played videogames and watched a movie before catching some zzzzzzs.

Mom and Dad had lots of fun with out us, of course. They had a nice night of sleep without us... More on them later as I gotta go.
