Well, I am horribly behind on my blog. We have been doing so much, that at night all I want to do is get into bed!  It has been blast though.
Once we left Amarillo we drove through New Mexico.  We did not have time to stop and do anything, but have a picnic lunch.  However, the view driving through was incredible.  It just amazes me how many diverse landscapes the United State has to offer.  Just when I fall in love with one place, I find another that takes my breath away.    






It was a long drive through New Mexico.  We have discovered that once we have been driving for about five or six hours we are all ready to be done. Kyle and Katie get silly which tends to annoy the rest of us who are tired and cranky.  At least the extreme heat subsided once we hit Texas. Kind of funny we had to go to the Southwest to escape the brutal heat the East is experiencing.

We arrived in Arizona safely and settled down for the night at a campground in the Petrified Forest.  We never did get to see the Petrified Forest although we drove right through it.  We did however get up the next morning and head over to the Meteor Crater.  I wasn't sure how this was going to be, Rob was the one who really wanted to see it.  I was afraid the kids would be bored, but we ended up all really liking it.  It is one of those places where a tour guide can really make it or break it.  Luckily we had a great tour guide named Eduardo who was both informative and funny.  We only got to walk about 1/4 a mile around the crater, but it was incredible to see.  Of course I had to stay away from the edge due to my fear of heights.  Wait till I get to the Grand Canyon!
