Amarillo Trip II

Our trip to Amarillo continued with some essential stops - to get Luke a cowboy hat, to see the Cadillac Ranch, to eat Texas barbecue, and to visit the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum. As you can see below, we had a great day! It was also Alison & Brandon's 3rd anniversary, which they kindly chose to celebrate by taking us around to see all the sights Amarillo has to offer!

We ended the day at Brandon's parents' house, where Kim and Brenda cooked us a delicious meal and and took us over to see their new home, which is currently under renovation/construction. We finished the night with a surprise cake and videos from Brandon and Alison's wedding and reception. We had a blast, and Luke slept soundly on the couch in the living room!

Trying on boots at Cavender's Boot City

Luke loved the boots!

He may have loved the shiny belts even more!

Allison tried on the $600 boots.

Decorating the Cadillacs at Cadillac Ranch.

Some eccentric guy with some Cadillacs, land, and money decided to plant a row of Cadillacs beside the road. People can stop and paint them. A must-see if you are in Amarillo!

Shopping for a cow-skin rug. As you can see, Luke found other things better than home furnishings!

What a find!


A random soap box race car at the Panhandle-Plains museum.

An old oil rig. It was impressive.

Luke voluntarily stood by this multiple times. We think he wanted us to measure him. According to the chart, he is nearly as tall as the Age of Eurypterids.

More driving - Luke really came into his own on this trip in regards to driving things. He now wants to drive everything - the car, the boat, etc.
