"Oh Fair New Mexico....."

My parents, luckily for me, have a great house in Taos.  It is awesome for the winter so we can get our skiing needs accomplished and equally awesome for summer so that we can escape the Texas heat.  The drive was dreadful!  Left at 5:30am and arrived at 5:00pm.  The kids were great and I had my first experience with 5 hour energy drink.  Every time I drank a sip I imagined poison going into my body.  I got over it when I considered napping on the side of the road.  Once in New Mexico it was so much cooler!  The high one day was 86!  The kids love it there mainly because we can get outside a lot.  We walked to the plaza and went to the kids favorite place, Twirl.  I love watching all the eccentric moms give their kids organic snacks and wrap their dreadlocks up in fashionable scarfs.  One day included a hike to some hot springs by the river....I want to go there in the winter and check out the steam among the snow.  The kids loved the idea of getting in with their clothes on.  They were dry by the time we got to the top of the trail!!!  Being in New Mexico made me anxious for some cooler weather here in Texas.  Cool weather is comforting.
