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!
