Yesterday we went with the kids to explore a little of New Mexico. We drove up to Alamogordo, which is about an hour and a half northeast from here. There we found a nice playground, a model train ride, and a zoo. From there we drove to the White Sands National Monument and got to see and play in the sand a little. It was quite a hot day, so we couldn't do as much as we would have liked. We'll have to go back that way sometime when the weather is a little more comfortable. This was the last chance we'll have to take day trips like this for a while, since Hannah starts school on Monday. If you want to see more pictures from the day, take a look at our album on Picasa or MobileMe. I'm writing this from my phone, so I'll come back later and add links to the sites.

  1. We went to White Sands last time we were in El Paso visiting my in-laws. Neat place! Once you’re in Alamogordo, it’s not too much further to go up into the mountains to Cloudcroft/Ruidoso. That area is just beautiful. The summer greenery is a nice change from El Paso, and in winter you can find real snow.
