My Parents' New Mexico Home

I figured I would lighten the mood a bit. 

If you can believe it...I have not posted all I have to post on our New Mexico trip!  Crazy, crazy.  But, I am just about finished.  Maybe one or two more posts and that's it.  I hope you enjoy looking through all of my photos as much as I loved living it all.  And now re-living it all.

And if not...take a hike! 

I mean, go for a walk, but, then come back, okay? 

Carrizozo, New Mexico is where they stay.  Home away from home, I shall say.   


And now I will quit trying to rhyme....it was fun while it lasted, but it should probably be a crime.  Yeah.

Carrizozo is a cool, laid back, very small town...with quirky buildings and such.



We tried a couple times over to have some ice cream at the local ice cream parlor...like the old timey ones...at Mr. Roy's.  But, Mr. Roy opens when he wants to and well, we just never caught up with him.  Bummer.  But, that's his store.  I soooooo wanted to see the goodies inside that I have heard SO much about.  Next time.  I will get him next time.


These cute lil guys greeted me my first morning there.  Just walking along...grazing up my parents road...


It is truly gorgeous there.  I understand why New Mexico is known as the Land of Enchantment.  Because it is.  Very enchanting.  I was in awe.  I love being in awe.


From dawn until dusk...there is always a site to behold.  And so uniquely perfect.


This is the view from my parents backyard.  Not too shabby, eh?


And if you gaze to your right...you would see this.


This wee one was just happy the town had a playground. 


As was I....she needed to exhale some of that built up energy.  This was a good way to make her completely....

{how cute is that bench?!}

She got her first up close and personal meeting with a tumble weed.  I am pretty sure she said, "What the?" before I snapped that pic.  Yeah, I have to own that one. 


{please excuse the boogies!}

Carrizozo is "famous" {ha!} for their awesome painted donkey's.  Actually, it may be all of NM, but whatevs.  They were cute.  And this one Layla named London.  That was her pet donkey while we were there.


And while the trip proved to be lovely, and beautiful, and full of awe inspiring views...



...nothing beats moments like these!
