After we left Santa Fe our first stop today was Roswell. We went to the UFO Museum. The kids have recently developed an interest in UFO's so we thought they might enjoy it. I think they liked looking at the pictures and the displays but it requires a lot of reading which they didn't much want to do.
After we finished in Roswell we headed to Carlsbad Caverns. We got there too late to be able to go into any of the caves but we stayed to see the bats fly. It's just hard to comprehend how many there were even though we were there watching it. It's amazing. It's too bad that they won't let you take pictures of it.
We're staying in Van Horn which takes about 1 1/2 hours to get to but there really wasn't anything close that seemed decent.
In hopes of saving time tonight and since everything else was closed we went to Wendy's at a truck stop to pick up some dinner quickly. Well, after I placed our order a bus showed up and most of the people came in to get something to eat. At this same time the two people in charge went on break and just left three people to work and only one of them was cooking. Somewhere in all the confusion one of the computers went down and quit sending the orders to the cook. Unfortunately ours was one of those that got lost. It took 45 minutes to get our food. We would have been better off to go into a restaurant and have a sit-down dinner. I'm sure IHOP was open. lol
We'll be heading back to the Caverns tomorrow to go into the caves. I think the kids will like it.
