Wedding Day: Second son’s special day.

The day of the wedding was marvelous. Jim and I had breakfast at Mimi”s (again) in 1000 Oaks with Chris Bellerue. Good to see her! I went swimming and then we started to make our way to the venue.



There was a little petting zoo on premises.


Such a magical night! Such a wonderful couple!

Everyone trying to figure out what to do…


Sound asleep grandson Nolan.

Later that day…

We arrived in Las Vegas, New Mexico, one of our most favorite places. We discovered it years ago, before the train station was re-done, and again immediately after, when the curator asked if we had ever seen Longmire. We hadn’t, but are converts now. Just ’cause, we ate lunch at the Palace Hotel. It’s beautiful!



Not knowing where we’d eat in the next few days, I decided to get my dose of Mexican food in the form of Huevos Rancheros with Adovado Pork green chili. Now I wish I’d taken a picture.

We left at 6 o’clock and drove west on the 50 to Pueblo, Colorado. I miss my dogs already.
It’s fun being up early again and greeting the birds as they wake.
From Pueblo we headed south on the 25 to Raton Pass near Trinidad.IMG_2072

Long day of driving.
