Ruidoso Vacation

Well, we're back! We took an amazingly restful vacation to Ruidoso, New Mexico for a full week, the longest vacation since our "hunniemoon" (that's how we spell it) over 2 years ago. We were a bit nervous about the 9 hour car trip since Taylor has only been on much shorter trips (3 hours to Dallas, 1 hour to Waco, etc.) before this. She did SO well! There were definitely times when she got fussy, but overall it was a great success! We went to Ruidoso Downs (the horse races), went picnicking in the mountains, made the rounds shopping in downtown, golfed (well, I mostly watched and drove the cart), went horseback riding in the mountains, and most of all...relaxed and refreshed in the cool mountain air. The average was probably around 80 so we loved to just hang out on the patio and veg out. Taylor started grabbing for toys this week and she was holding her rattle for the first time. The funny and sad part were that she has a hard time controlling her arms so she would bop herself in the head with it sometimes. Well, we are so glad to be back! Enjoy the pictures!


  1. Where's Ruidoso, New Mexico?
    Why did you choose that place to vacation?

  2. I have to say one more time....

  3. Ruidoso is in northern NM, surrounded by the Sierras. My family has a house there, so the trip was basically free...that's reason enough for us!

  4. Did you have childcare for some of these events, because I'm trying to picture you horseback riding in the mountains with a Snuggli on?
    It sounds amazing!!! Sign me up!!!
    Very brave, making such a long car trip with a little one. I commend you! I learned the magical trick of balancing over a car seat for emergency feedings in the car that way. (Sorry guys. I know that probably really freaked some of you out, but this is how it works.)


I heart comments!
