We're Home....

We made it home... We are back from our family vacation. We had a great time but sure was glad to get home. We were gone eleven days and the last few were hard. Landon had, had enough and it's crazy being stuck in the car with six kids. I thought I might loose my mind. I seriously considered drugs. Ha! For me and them... Anyways, we first went through Amarillo, Texas and had a great time. We took the kids by the Big Texan and then out to Cadillac Ranch. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's a bunch of Cadillac cars buried in the ground and you can come and spray paint them. The kids thought that was way cool. Then we headed into Glorieta, New Mexico. It was absolutely beautiful. Perfect weather the whole week. Like 70's weather. We went up into the mountains and played in the creek one day then we took a trip into Santa Fe one day. It was nice there too. Then we headed on to my grand parents home in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Lot's a trips down memory lane. I loved it. I hadn't been there since I was a kid so I had a great time. We stopped by some lava rocks, went by White sands, and went to the space museum there as well. The kids really enjoyed all of them. Over all we had a great time. Although, Landon was ready to be home about three days ago. He was worn out. I took tons of pictures, like 200. So I'll post more later. I sure missed keeping up with all of you guys. I can't wait to read every one's blog and catch up.

So glad you're back! I have missed you!! Can't wait to see more pictures. Looks like you had a great time. It is always good to get away, but there's really no place like home! I'm glad you were able to go to your grandparents place. I'm sure that brought back a flood of memories for you.
