Homeward Bound

We took five days to leisurely drive home from Minneapolis. Cashing in on the rest of our credit card rewards, we stayed in nice hotels along the way for free!

Here are some photos of our last night, ending the trip as it began with Beth and Emma six weeks before at the Courtyard in Amarillo, TX.

Once again we ate at Joe's Crab Shack, where Eliza got to paint a crab again and really wished that Emma was there with her.

And this time I even managed to get a photo of the Texas shaped waffle! We never saw anything like this in any of the other 19 states we visited. That's Texas for you! Sorry it was upside down on the plate--I guess if I really wanted to I could flip it but I'm not going to.

We returned home on a Monday afternoon and when we passed the school near our house the odometer read 6,292 miles. Now that's an education!

they'll go to the effort to *make* a texas shaped waffle, but not go to the effort to make sure it's facing the right way.

this amuses me. ^_^
