It was rainy when we left on our second day of driving from Guanajuato for San Antonio, Texas.
When we crossed the border from Mexico to the United States, these semi trucks were lined up for several miles waiting to get through. We were glad that we got to go through a different line.
At the airport, before Jace arrived, we bought these crappy fruit cups filled with sad, wilted melons and strawberries, and a couple of bottles of water for $15, which was about half the cost of ALL of our groceries each week. Yep…we were definitely in the United States and already ready to get back to Mexico!
Jace’s plane pulled up to the terminal on time.
The night before, after Jace’s plane arrived, the three of us traveled to Laredo, Texas to spend the night. The next day, after we crossed the U.S.-Mexico Border by land and it was still cloudy and rainy…
It was about a 10 hour drive from Laredo to Guanajuato. The drive was quiet and Jace slept some of the way. He didn’t know I took this picture of him.
The landscape changes quite a bit between Laredo, Texas and Guanajuato, Mexico and Jace became enamored with the Joshua trees we saw on the way. He had the idea that maybe he could make some rope out of the leaves so we tried to find a couple of unfenced, inconspicuous trees so we could try to get a leaf.
Sadly, the trees were pretty greedy with their leaves. It wasn’t that easy to remove them so we left empty handed.
