Mountain Time

We made our annual trip to New Mexico this past week with my folks. It is a trip we all look forward to for one reason- we do NOTHING! Don't get me wrong, we fill our days, but we try to only do what we want to! We do a lot of sleeping, reading and eating. It is a time of renewal for all of our bodies and souls. I think that our favorite part this year was watching Caroline. She loved seeing the deer. She nicknamed one of them "Foo Foo" for whatever reason. What a blessing to get to see things that have become somewhat ordinary and familiar to us become something magical to her!
On the way we stopped in Muleshoe to see Chris' grandparents. They are such precious people and we love taking the kids out to see them whenever we can!
Some playtime at the local park
In their lovely backyard

The view from their backyard- space for as far as the eye can see

Girls Day- pedicures!
A great view out of the window!

Dad and Chris played golf twice at an amazing new course. Dad complained that Chris made him play from the tips!

I am so thankful for the chance to get away and get a fresh breath! The Lord never fails to teach me something while we are there! What a blessing to be surrounded by the people I love- except the Kirchners!
