Amarillo!

amarillo

i've lived here and very near here for pretty much my entire life. there was a period of 5 years that we were away for my husband to attend Texas A&M University. other than that...this is it. there are a lot of great things about living here. it's a nice place to raise kids. especially for my husband and i. both of our families are here (for the most part). my kiddos get to see their grandparents any time they like. they are close with all of their aunts and cousins. they have tons of 3rd and 4th cousins - i think that's what they are.... kids of hubby's cousins and some of them even have kids. so when there are family gatherings on hubby's side of the family... to say there are 30 people under the age of 12 would not be exaggerating! they love it! then, on the other hand.. in my family, my kids are the only ones. everyone is completely ga-ga for them. they love it! they've got it made either way you look at it. back to A.... i'm not really going to post any more about amarillo, because i have B-Z to tell you all about it!

Amarillo sounds absolutely cool - and the photo is so nice as well, especially the deep blue sky, considering the fact that where I live we have freezing temperatures and lots of snow at the moment. I wish I could be in Amarillo right now!

When i lived in Dallas I stayed overnight in Amarillo on my way to New Mexico each year.

What a great way for you to honor your hometown!
