White Sands, NM!

Matt had a trip he needed to take for work, so we all decided to tag along and make a little vacation out of it.  We stayed in the mountains of beautiful Ruidoso, NM.  When we arrived on Tuesday night, there were several deer right beside the parking lot.  I couldn't believe how close they were letting us get to them.  Maylee Grace wanted to walk right up and touch them.  Then, on Wednesday morning, we woke up to snow covering the ground.  We traveled down to the White Sands National Monument to spend a few hours playing the sand dunes.  It was so beautiful and serine.  The kids had a blast playing in and sledding down the dunes. 

They look like wee little ants!

We visited a Pistachio farm which also happened to have the World's Biggest Pistachio!!  They had over 12,000 trees.  It was a pretty fun stop with lots of pistachio samples!
