We took the scenic drive from the airport to Cody and Britt's house, and I just loved this street lined with pecan trees.
Dinner at Pecan Grill
On Friday, Cody took us down to the town square to look in all the local shops. I loved these chili peppers and wish I had a way to get them home.
My baby brother and his beautiful wife
The fam...minus Jason and Cale
Love these two!!
Cody kicked off the sledding and showed us how its done.
Could she be any more precious? I don't think so.
So the story behind the title commences with this picture. My fantastic mom does not do anything halfheartedly and apparently sledding at White Sands is no different. Instead of slowing herself down at the end of the hill, mom headed down full force and ended up getting no less than 2 feet of air. Unfortunately, she landed directly on her tailbone on the pavement at the bottom of the hill. Once we knew she was ok, it turned out to be rather comical. She did, however, end up with a bruised tailbone and a bruised ego as a bystander decided to call the White Sands EMS to check out the woman who wiped out sledding. Mom was thoroughly embarrassed, but we were very happy she was not seriously injured. We ended up laughing about it the rest of the weekend.....sorry Mom!
Once we confirmed that mom was ok, the picture taking of the scene commenced. haha
Dad taking his turn on the hill.
We ended the day by taking a short hot air balloon ride which was really neat. It was beautiful to look out at all the endless amounts of white sand all around.
