A Much Needed Weekend Away

Long days and short nights call for a weekend away every now and then. Thank goodness we got to do that this past weekend. We made the journey up to New Mexico to see T's folks and celebrate his niece's 1st birthday! It was a small family affair, but fun none-the-less.

Friday I hustled around and got this ready to go on the trip. T had to work that morning, they branded calves at our house so he didn't have to get up as early, and they were done by 10. He then hustled around to get some waters check and we were in the car, loaded down, and on our way. Yes, I did say car... I've borrowed my mom's car because I thought I would be making the trip alone. Plus it gets good gas mileage, about twice as much as our beast dodge does.

Saturday morning Maw and Pappy watched K for us and we went into town for a "lunch" date. More like to run some errands but it was a date to me. When we got back we helped get ready for the birthday girl's party.

All the little kids went swimming, K even had his feet in the water and actually seemed to enjoy it! I think he will love the water like his momma does, at least I hope he does. He loves splashing around when he takes a bath.

I just love this picture! He doesn't like to smile for the camera but somehow I was able to snap one.

This is the more common face. He likes to "box" ya!

Saturday evening it rained so we went inside and visited into the night. Come Sunday morning after breakfast we decided to go to the Black River by Carlsbad and go fishing for Father's Day.

I don't know if he really enjoyed it there. It was kind of hot and last night when I was bathing him I saw that his little legs were slightly sunburned. Poor guy! Doesn't he look just adorable in his little sailor's hat and overalls? Haha!

We ended up getting home about 7 Sunday evening, which really wasn't bad. Reality set in though about bedtime when T's boss told him he had to be at a set of pens by 6 the next morning. Oh joy...

Hope ya'll have a great week.. and... the next post should be my recipe that I received in Ranch Girl's recipe swap! Yum Yum!!
