May Adventures


May brought some fun times.

Vacation to Utah to visit my bestie of nearly 20yrs!

We haven’t seen each other in years due to …well something we all call life!


Kids had to of course get out and stretch on the long ride there and back to Texas.

Some of the sites and an old train set we came across I believe was in Fort Garland or

some small town around Alamosa Colorado don’t recall for sure…hint to self

this is why you blog more off than every 3 mos or so and have to go back and

recall small details!

Had some wonderful West Texas storms that left us treasures such as this:


cracked windshield 😦 and ripped awning



Love the rv park and managers in Midland

but dreaded day or 2 after a good rainstorm this was in front of the rv

and the drive out to the main road poor truck needed a bath after each trip



Relaxing listening to Mozart. Can’t believe she got him to be still let alone listen!


How do u have pizza and not heat up the rv when you are 6 miles out of town…fire up the grill of course.

Mothers Day was really nice and relaxing.  Brad still working in Midland at shop

so he still had weekends off and off early during the week. Bank

account didn’t like this but we as a family rather enjoyed it.

He grilled and had Inger peel potatoes for salad she decided a chair and sitting

was necessary for the job. The peeler was broken so she had

to use a paring knife and was none impressed.

First night in NM and of course we had to hit the Pecos River

So first half of the month spent in Texas and vacation to Utah then off to New Mexico


Boys started their first morning in Carlsbad off right with a hunt and a catch…and release of course but had some happy boys to start this morning.

A couple days into getting to NM had a good rainstorm

how do you spend your morning…apparently mine is rescuing boys from mud holes…Benjamin initially was stuck so Gabe came to get me I said sounds like a nice place for him I’ll be down soon with my camera. I get to where they are and now Gabe is stuck by helping Benjamin get out. Boys…smh guess it’s one way to go mudding without getting into trouble…innocently saying honestly we were just walking thru the water puddles and suddenly started sinking. They were reminded what NM is full of sinkholes.

I was told NM was hot…sweltering hot. After nearly a week and we had a hot moment but mostly chilly weather …there had been cold drizzly and wet days. Lol even the insurance adjuster said this is abnormal but her pecan orchard is loving it.


Almost daily boys go out run around hunt stuff down then like clockwork come in for 10 o’clock snack and request a movie time and this is what ya get.. probably the quietest it is every day.


How do you play your DS system…well apparently while charging its in the “oval office”


Inger got a job working for Sonic it was closer than McDonald’s for her bike ride
