At the Cadilla Ranch, the cars are stuck in the dirt. What's up with that?

Grandpa and Mom got to paint their names on one of the cadillacs.

Well, it was rise and shine around 8 a.m. this morning, 'cause it was another day of adventure on our road trip. Maybe Grandpa and Mommy (a.k.a. Country Music Recording Artist Laura Bryna) could wear some different clothes!

On Day 2, we started off in Arkansas and we got to see lots of brightly colored trucks and really tall billboards, which only us feathered folk can see! We also saw lots of American flags. Love that American pride! Then we headed into Oklahoma. So pretty there, and the people were nice. We got gas at a Shell station again, guess Grandpa loves Shell gas, and we met two guys who were on their way back to Utah. Of course, they wanted a picture with us ... and Mom.

Ya’ know, Grandpa and Mama keep that turkey jerky nearby for a good snack. But they're a little close to the cousin thing. Weird. Then we crossed over the Arkansas River, saw some windmills, and drove along Route 66. That's one of Mommy's favorite songs and one of the first jazz tunes she ever learned!

We traveled past Muskogee and Shawnee — went through a lot of different nations, like Cherokee, Arapaho, Potawami and Kickapoo (love that word). We love all this Indian history. It's so beautiful and interesting. We also stopped at The Cherokee Trading Post, and Grandpa took our picture with Mom in front of the Indian, buffalo, two totem poles and a scenic mural.

We passed Lucille's Gas Station on Old Route 66. Sooo cool! When we were stopped, Harmony got on the steering wheel, thinking maybe he was tired of Grandpa's driving. Grandpa laughed, took over, and then we headed to Oklahoma City. Lots of big buildings in that town! Soon after that, we grabbed some gas, again, at a Route 66 this time. Change of scenery in the gas department!

Texas country! What a big place! Mom says she loves that southern hospitality. Then Mom and Grandpa stopped at a Dairy Queen in Amarillo, for a chocolate milkshake and a cherry limeade. Mmm, looked so yummy, but our Nutri-Berries are better.

Another quick stop at Home Depot for some spray paint for the Cadillac Ranch. Grandpa sprayed Mama's name and Daddy on one of the cars. It was really cool. People kept coming up and wanting their picture taken with us and the cars. Two sights at one place! So funny! Grandpa decided we should stay in Amarillo for the night at The Country Inn and Suites. It's another place, like The Candlewood Inn, that allows us to stay with Mom in her room. We love those kind of places!

Now we're in our Wingabagos in Mom's room having our snacks and heading for bed. Mommy's having some Chinese food from China Star and putting on all her face creams. Gotta wait til she's finished for our bedtime hugs and kisses. Although, we may never get to bed. Just kidding!

Pleasant ... dreams, see ya’ in the … morning, love ya’ a whole big ... bunch, from the bottom of my ... heart. It's a call and response. That's what Mama says with Grandma every night, since she was born! Well, that's our bird's eye view today. Tomorrow, westward!

If I submitted photos of my birds outside like this they wouldn't get used. It's against BirdTalk policy to show birds outside without a cage or harness. I guess that it pays to be both beautiful and famous.
