Spring Break WAS AWESOME

This year, we decided to do a New Mexico road trip for Spring break!  We are famous for traveling by airplane, so we don't know alot of the wonderful state we live in.  So we thought we should go take advantage of some of the amazing places we have right here in our state.  First stop:  White Sands!!

White Sands is such a strange and unique phenomenon.  It looks like it would be Hot Sand, but it is actually gypsum and it is cool to the touch.  The day we went was Perfect!  Not too hot (I've been there in August) and not too cold.  It was fantastic!
We took the saucer along for sledding! 


There's hills and hills of what looks just like snow!  

Cutest little picnic areas, too! 

And of course, some desert plants add interest! 

The winds create these layers in the gypsum! 

Surface it to say- we LOVED our day there.  We enjoyed walking around over hills and sledding and seeing what lots of other people were doing too!  I'd highly recommend a visit here if you are ever in the Southwest!

Taking you to the Beach Today

We went lots of fun places in San Diego and ate tons of delicious treats and laughed alot!  But I always look forward to a trip to the beach-- or the coastline near the college Ross attends.  It was as beautiful as ever! Heres some fun shots we took there!  I'm happy when Ross lets me practice my photography on him!
Who doesn't love the crash of the waves???

Layers and layers of waves

It was a lovely afternoon

This was a pier in Ocean Beach.  That day, the waves were crashing really high!  So cool

The clouds and boats here always make for such an interesting pic

Thank you for joining me in San Diego!  Happy you could travel along!  You never know where we are headed next!
