Vacationing with Wild Thing

Wild Thing and I have been on a road trip from California to Colorado the last 9 days.  Our destination was a family reunion in my hometown of Canon City, Colorado. 

We spent three days traveling through Arizona, New Mexico and southern Colorado.  We both agree that New Mexico is enchanted. 

This first picture is of the Taos Pueblo...

and here is Wild Thing in the doorway of the Catholoc Church at the Taos Pueblo.  The Taos Pueblo is a much recommended stop. 

We also spent time in Gallup which we thought was a great place.

Tomorrow we head back to California; we will be traveling through the Colorado Rockies and into Arizona.  Along the way we plan to stop at Mesa Verde National Park and Grand Canyon National Park.

A Little Mother Daughter Time

Wild Thing and I went riding, something we have not done in over a year.  Here's Wild Thing on her favorite horse, Kidd.  Kidd is a spirited cowpony who belongs to our friend Mary.

I rode my little girl, Breezy and ponied Max.  Max and I are finally making head way and I am looking forward to trail riding on him soon.

On the metal front I am learning to fold form!  I can't wait to show you what I am working on.

Graduation 2011

"My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you,
 and wants the same things too..."---Rascal Flatts

Wild Thing graduated from high school last night!  Congratulations!

She is off to junior college and then to nursing school.

Watch out world.
