Yesterday morning Corbin, Lam & Quan came over. I was so glad to see them all. They were hungry guys so I made them some bacon & eggs for breakfast. Afterwards, we decided we would head out to Palo Duro Canyon. It was a nice cool day and that's what you need when going to the Canyon. Hiking around in the hot sun can be exhausting.

We stopped off at Subway and got some sandwiches to take with us. When we got there and starting to take off on a trail, we noticed it was pretty muddy because of the rain the night before. Ugh, that's was no good. So we got back in the car and drove around.

We pulled into the outdoor theater where they do the world famous play "Texas." Well, maybe not world famous, but famous in these parts anyway. We walked back stage and looked at all the staging equipment. It was pretty cool. I kept thinking, we probably shouldn't be back here, but we didn't see any signs that said 'keep out' or anything, so we kept wandering around and even took some pictures.












And then we looked up and there was a man with a mean look on his face. Uh-oh.

"You folks need to get out of here!" He said.

"Yes, sir! We are sorry, and we will leave right away."

He seemed very agitated at us and just stood there staring.

"You're not supposed to be in here." He said.

"So sorry Sir. We didn't take anything."

And we hooked 'em to the car. Whew! That was scarey. LOL.

We went across the street and got out of the car to try another trail. Corbin couldn't find his water bottle. He had given it to me to hold while I was taking their picture when we were backstage. I sat it down to take the picture. Oh dear, ----we left it there.

"We don't really need the water bottle," Corbin said, not wanting to go back over there.

I would have just said to forget it, but this water bottle was Cody's water bottle that he had while on the football team in high school. It says "Roye #32" on the side of it. I've had it for 10 years, and I wanted to keep it. O Brother.

So we got back in the car and headed across the street to find the boss of the outdoor theater. We waited outside for a few minutes because we sure weren't going back in there without permission. He finally came out.

"Sir, We left our water bottle in there. Could we go back inside and get it?"

"You left your water bottle?" He said.

"Y-Y-Y-Yes Sir. Could we please go get it?"

"Sure, you can." He said as he cracked a big smile.

"Whew! Thank you!"

And one of the twins (don't know which one, I still can't tell them apart) ran inside and got it.

We finally did find a trail to hike, so we did that and then went to the gift shop and looked around for a while.

It was a fun day.

We took this picture as we were leaving the park.
