We went to the Palo Duro Canyon State Park today. I hadn't heard of it, but apparently it is the 2nd largest canyon in the US. It was way too cold and windy to explore, so we will definitely have to come back in the spring. 


Tonight we went to The Big Texan. It's a huge steakhouse/tourist trap here in Amarillo. They even had a 72 oz streak eating contest. Pretty gross, but amusing. I know it's a funny place for non-meat-eaters to go, but their non-meat foods were delicious.

We're officially homeowners! Our closing was this afternoon, and tonight we celebrate.

We spent our Sunday evening at Nickelmania with our friends. Here is a portrait we had sketched by Leonardo, I think it's pretty lovely.

So we did something a little different yesterday... we went to a NASCAR race. I never would have thought I would attend one (the extent of my racing knowledge is limited to Mario Kart), but our friend Nathan and his mom had 2 extra tickets and asked us to go. It was a totally new experience, lots of new sights and sounds and smells.
