New Mexico






I just got back from spending a week in Las Cruces, New Mexico with two of my very best friends. Becca lives in New Mexico with her husband and three kids; Trevor, Natalee and Collin. My other friend Lindsay, traveled from Eugene, Oregon with her son Kai to meet up with us. It was so fun seeing them again. I love them and wish I could take them all home with me. Well, maybe it would be better if they just lived near by!!! I definitely gained an appreciation for my ability to just hop in my car and go whenever I want too. It was crazy planning outings around nap times, breakfast, lunch, dinner, potty breaks and melt downs. That being said, the kids are amazing and my friends are even more amazing Moms. I got off easy and never changed a single diaper! Whew!!! Most of the time, I just had to hold the little one Collin, who happens to be as easy-going as it gets. While we were there, we visited White Sands, a national park formed out of giant dunes of crystal that looks like sand, but thankfully never gets HOT! We also ate at a restaraunt called La Posta, which is the building that was the very first post office. The weather was amazing the entire time and of course Bear told me it started in snowing in Utah again while I was gone. I thought it was sad he was scraping snow, while I was getting a tan. Well, not that sad!

Hmmmm....I saw sand etchings about Noodle and Bear, but none about me. I can only assume that you were so torn up by how much you missed me that you couldn't bear to write my name/draw my likeness in the sand....
