After breakfast, we all got ready for the day. By then the winds had died down and the temperature outside had cranked up to over 90 degrees. We drove to see Cadillac Ranch which is a display of 10 classic Cadillacs that are parked nose first in the ground. Evidentally the artistic display was created about 40 years ago and had to move locations in the 90s as the city sprawled out towards the original location.
The kids thought it was pretty cool to be able to participate in some sanctioned graffiti.
We left Cadillac Ranch and as we were driving by a mall with a JCPenney, we spontaneously stopped and I ran in and did a little bit of shopping while the boys went into a Wade Gordon Salon Hairdressing Academy so that Spence could get his wild mane tamed. ;o) I think my plan may have backfired because Spence didn't seem to mind paying for his haircut out of his own money and thought his stylist was much gentler than me so maybe I'm out of a job permanently.
Brock had taken full advantage of his birthday and found a coupon online for a free premium car wash at Quick Quack Car Wash. This was no cheapy wash, it was a $15 car wash with the triple action foam and everything! It did a great job and it was completely free!
|Just look at that shine!|
Next, we went to the Jack Sizemore RV Museum to check out some very classic RV's.
|1966 Bethany Tent Trailer with original mod squad upholstery|
|1953 Fleetwood - the first year that Fleetwood made travel trailers|
|1948 Flxible Bus modified and used by the Gornike Family in the movie RV|
We left the museum and headed back to the trailer to have some quiet time. Some of us got in a great nap while others quietly played computer games or watched a movie with headphones.
Then Brock and I took a little walk together with Heidi. It was nice; we came back and sat outside in the shade at our picnic table and talked for awhile. We didn't feel all that hungry yet, but it was getting late and so we decided to head out for dinner at Hoffbrau Steaks. We were not disappointed. The steaks were great. The kids all liked their food too. Brighton had a chicken sandwich with Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce. Spence and Sky were stoked because the kids' meals included an ice cream push pop for dessert! For our dessert, Bri, Bryn and I split a fabulous peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream.
