Colorado - Day 9

Back to Texas! We headed out mid-morning and planned to eat breakfast at a little pastry shop in La Veta. Well on the way, Miss Selah, who hadn't had anything to eat but apple juice, got carsick in the car and threw up all the apple juice she'd had that morning. Poor thing! We got to La Veta, and got Selah cleaned up, had breakfast, and then got back on the road. Thankfully, the load on top of the car had been loaded more efficiently and we didn't have to stop once to readjust anything. We did make frequent stops so the kids could play and so we could eat or just stretch our legs. We made it home around 1am and were completely exhausted! We had such a great time on our trip but were SO ready to be home and to sleep in our own beds.
The view of the Spanish Twin Peaks on our way home.A lovely establishment we saw on our way home. I don't remember what town we were in... somewhere in West Texas.

The motel sign cracks me up! There is another West Texas hotel called the Nurseanickel motel. I think it is near Dalhart...?
