Between Houston and Provo

Since we were on a road trip, a lot happens between destinations. The drive between Houston and Provo was the longest drive we did. We actually stopped in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the night since it is such a ridiculous drive. But that doesn't mean that we didn't have fun along the way.

Our first stop was the Bluebell factory in Brenham, Texas. If you have never heard of Bluebell, you are missing out. It is seriously the best ice cream in the United States. Seriously, you should make sure you try some bluebell if you are ever in the south.

We went on a factory tour at 8:00 in the morning, and got a sample of Bluebell at the end. It was the best breakfast I have ever had. Even Caitlin, who was hesitant to eat ice cream for breakfast loved her mint chocolate chip ice cream. I stuck with my favorite chocolate chip cookie dough.

After our excruciatingly long car ride, we spent the night in Albuquerque and then continued on to Utah - and made a quick trip to the 4 Corners. 

We were expecting the 4 Corners to be something spectacular, but it was actually just a monument that showed where all the states lined up. We only spent about 30 minutes there, most of it we spent browsing the small vendors they have in every state, mainly Native Americans selling handmade items. And we did snap a picture in all 4 states. Our first time visiting Colorado, if you can call this visiting.

On our drive, we saw all sorts of cool rocks, buildings, and other things, but mainly we just took pictures of rocks. So here it is - all the cool rocks we saw between the 4 Corners and Provo.

Not too impressive is it? Well... that's pretty much all there is on the road through Colorado and southern Utah. We were glad to finally find civilization again!
