Readying Ourselves for our Next Adventure

Howdy from New Mexico!  Pam and I have been hanging out in Albuquerque since April 3rd visiting my family and Pam’s daughter, Jandi. My brother John’s daughter, Joanna, was married on April 28th at Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm.  My sons, Patrick, Aaron, and Anthony, were also able to attend the service, so it was nice for all of my immediate family to be together (my parents, Ross and Anne, would be so proud!).  We had a blast having family all together and getting out to see some of the sites and exhibits while we were in the area.  We were also thankful for being able to eat some excellent Mexican food. (They just can’t make it better any place else but New Mexico!)

From Albuquerque we plan to return to Carlsbad to visit Pam’s son, Josh, and the granddaughters for about a week. Then we’re headed to Orem, Utah for Patrick’s wedding which will be held May 19th through the 21st.  After his wedding, we plan to travel to Oregon and Washington for the summer and fall. Thanks for tuning in and letting me share our continuing adventure.

Peace!
