We continued our drive east and unfortunately, Ben wasn't feeling too well so we pulled over. After a couple minutes of fresh air, he was feeling better and we were back on the road!
We drove on the musical road (on Route 66) outside of Tijeras, NM quite a few times! It's only musical going eastbound so we had to drive in circles for awhile to hear the song several times.
We stopped in Amarillo for a delicious lunch at Leal's. Ellie only wanted to eat if she was sitting on Christopher's lap and he agreed to feed her-- he's such a good big brother!

We FINALLY made it to our hotel in Oklahoma City! Clearly, the kids were tired of being in the car (especially the little one!) and enjoyed stretching out in the room.
