New Mexico

We went to Ruidoso, New Mexico about a month ago.  Lantz spoke at a retreat for one of his best friend's youth groups.  On the way there we stopped in Lubbock and got to see our good friends Daniel and Natalie and then met up with two of our old youth group kids for dinner.  The girls did great driving.

The only pictures I have from the trip are of sweet Sunshine reading a book to the girls:


And then a family shot right before leaving:


It was really beautiful there, and of course it was great to spend a little time with two of our best friends.

We ended up driving the whole way home and not stopping for the night.  We did make a quick stop in Hobbs, New Mexico to see my cousin Brandon and his wife Sara.  They are so much fun!  It was so good to see them. 

But, pretty much driving straight home- that was not so much fun.  But the girls fell asleep and we didn't really want to wake them up to drag them into a hotel and unpack stuff just to wake them up and put them back in a car.  It seemed to make more sense to just keep on driving while they slept.  Lantz was a trooper.  We hit some pretty bad rain, but he did great- and stayed wide awake and drove the whole way.  I will say that I'm proud of myself for staying awake with him pretty much the whole time (except maybe like 20 minutes)- not bad for first trimester sleepiness. :)

All in all it was a fun trip and I'm glad we made some memories!
