It was a great week in New Mexico. The weather was absolutely fantastic. It was so nice to be away from the ultra humid, hot south!
Will had a great time at Glorieta.
Nash and Reed had an absolute blast.
There was so much to do and keep them busy with.
Yesterday we left Glorieta and headed to Albuquerque.
We swam in the hotel pool and had lots of fun.
We also met up with Tish and her son M. It was a great time to finally meet them. M was born a few weeks before Reed. They were adopted through the same agency in Taiwan.
The boys probably crossed paths as infants.
Today, we made the long journey back home. The boys were excited to get to the airport, but sad that we had to give up our rental van. Reed loves Hotels, Airplanes, and Rental Cars.
Reed was excited, however, when we got back home that our van was still here.
I forgot to mention that we ate at Bobcat Bite. Bobcat Bite is really popular and is a great place for a burger. Reed wanted to know where the bobcats were.
Nash and Will took naps on the flights home. Of course, the antinapper, Reed, didn't nap and is now fighting going to sleep for the evening with everything in him.

If you have never been to Glorieta, NM, you are really missing out. It is beautiful and the weather is amazing.
Over the past several years, Glorieta has not been the most popular spot for conferences, etc, so this week it has been pretty small in population. That means that the boys have free rain on ALL of the playgrounds and equipment. They don't mind putting it to use.
There is also a puttputt golf area. Reed and Nash have decided they would like to be professional puttputters for their careers.
Will has decided that he will be their caddy.
He just has to master walking.
Yesterday, we took the boys to Jackalope. It's a variety store that is HUGE! In the courtyard there are prairie dogs. Reed has starting calling them Meer Dogs, which combines his love for Meer Kats and now Prairie Dogs.
Our attempt at a family picture didn't go so well.
Will was semi-compliant.
Above you see evidence of the fun they have had.
Will has been trying to walk, but still prefers to make funny faces.
He is so adorable.
Tomorrow we are going to Albuquerque for the day and spending the night there.
Tonight, we ate at Bobcat Bite. It was yummy.
Nash is completely overwhelmed with love for his big brother. He wants to DO EVERYTHING Reed does! That sometimes gets them both in trouble.
We definitely stay on our toes.

We left bright and early on Monday morning to head to New Mexico. Reed picked Abbey some flowers. These are Cosmos that I grew from seeds last year that apparently reseed for the next year.
All three boys were thrilled about the plane ride.
Our flight went from Nashville to Houston to Dallas to Albuquerque! It was a long haul!
The boys were troopers though. They did great.
Nash gets excited about anything that Reed gets excited about.
He is just so doggone cute!
The boys did like changing up where they were seating and even though they love the idea of using a public restroom, I'm not sure that they realized there were potties on the plane because they never asked to go.
Our first night in New Mexico we ate at restaurant called Maria's. It was delicious!
On my lunch break from teaching, I took the boys out on the paddle boats. Notice my side is much further in the water. I needed some more weight on the other side.
Then I took the on the Kayak. Abbey and Will hung out on the pier.
They boys loved their travels.
They have decided that their new favorite sport is putt putt.
After some putt putt, Reed practiced his photography skills. He took some pretty good shots.
Doesn't Abbey look good. She is exercising, eating right, and looking smokin' hot!
Last night we went to Harry's Roadhouse with Uncle Bill.
They have a stream running through the patio. The boys loved it. Until these older little girls came by.
There is more to tell you, but I'm too sleepy! Just enjoy this update for now!
