Epic Road Trip Adventure – Day 2, New Mexico

Lessons learned thus far on our epic road trip adventure:

Children can and do go through multiple pairs of clothes every day.

Making scary faces at your sister and making her scream can and will get your electronics taken away.

Mommy doesn’t know the difference betweens mountains and hills.

Just because it is on the map or GPS doesn’t mean it is there.

As much as I love Texas, driving across West Texas is always kind of a drag. It takes FOREVER and the flat plains don’t do a lot for me. I enjoy seeing the wind farms and old oil rigs, but even that gets old after several hours. So crossing into New Mexico is always exciting. The land become textured and the colors are vivid, yet muted. Hard to describe if you haven’t seen it, but New Mexico is really magical. My Uncle lives in Santa Fe, so shortly after arriving at his house, he took us downtown to walk around and to see some of the historic sites. The Saint Francis Cathedral was open, so we wandered around inside and then around the square before heading back to his house for a cookout.

Hammocks on the porch

His patio is perfect for relaxing and the kids loved playing among the hummingbirds and cedar trees.

Bubbles in Santa Fe

We played with bubbles while he fire up the grill!

Everyone enjoyed the dry, cooler air. What a change from the humidity we are so used to in Texas!

Sunset and singing

The view from his porch is magnificent and after I put the little kids down, the bigger boys swung in the hammocks while I played guitar and sang to them. Now the house is quiet and the breeze is cool. Goodnight! Big day tomorrow!
