We have been traveling all over the country the past few days, and it has been a whirlwind! Last Thursday, Kurt and Rosie took off in the CRV for Dallas. I flew to Lubbock on Friday morning where they picked me up, and the three of us drove to Hobbs, NM together - Kurt's hometown. We visited with his dad, his wife (Anita), her three girls, and their kids (Tol & Anita's 8 grandkids!!). The best part of our stay in Hobbs was getting to see the amazing gift that Tol is making for us - little Toliver Knox's crib. What an amazing talent he has?! And this crib will be such a treasure in our family for years and years to come. I cannot wait to have a house to put the crib in...and I can't wait for baby Toliver Knox to come out and sleep in his crib!
Sunday morning, we packed up and headed north towards Albuquerque to see Kurt's brother, Clay (better known as "Uncle Pud"). Rather than taking the most efficient and easy way up, we decided to take the road less traveled. We stopped in Cloudcroft, NM, which is unbelievably gorgeous! You think of New Mexico and you think of desert, right? Not here! It's way up high in the mountains and is as beautiful as any place I had ever seen.
Leaving Cloudcroft, on the descent down the mountain, you can see White Sands, NM in the distance. This is where the first Transformers movie was filmed.
You can barely see it out in the distance, but it is quite a sight!
