After waking up at 6: 15 am and driving from Austin, TX to New Mexico, we were ready for some excitement. So...what could possibly be more exciting than sand!?
At 103 degrees, this was no easy task.
|Jumping for Joy... we were just that thrilled to make it to the top!|
We stopped at the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. We even made some new friends!
Mom has decided that we are going to get a photo of every state sign after crossing the borders. Since she powered through 12 hours of driving today (what a champ), she makes the rules.
We decided to drive on down to Benson, Arizona where Jen's friend Ellison is living on a farm. He lives in a little trailer, so we opted to sleep in the community farm house. The famers will be getting up at 4:30 am to begin work..hopefully they won't mind some guests in their meeting quarters!
We have a mega-air-mattress for just these types of situations, no big deal.
