kenyon had to travel for work over the holidays so i talked him into taking us with him. we were able to see our old houses in el paso and las cruces. we built our home in las cruces, and kenyon and i slaved over the backyard for weeks. it was the middle of summer when we moved in, and super hot. so after we got the twins to bed at night we would start digging trenches, hauling rocks, and laying down slaps of flagstone. a lot of my plants survived...i'm so proud...and even grew. these pictures are at white sands, nm. it is one of the most amazing places i have ever been...including europe. if you havn't been, it needs to be on your 'to do before i die' list.
