It is Christmas Time again in the 5th Wheel!

Last year at this time D and I were certain we would no longer be moving. We were certain we would be living in north TX. We were house hunting. Well a move later and we were just sure we were meant to be in Aggie Land. I was already dreaming of decorating a house for the holidays.


Then another move and we are out in west TX.  If I have learned anything over the past 7 years, it is that you have to go with the flow!

So for now...Happy Holidays from our little house on wheels!

 I am still attempting to get caught up on the blog. I hope that over the holidays I can catch up! I am really really going to try!!

Weekend "Vacation"

I am still trying to get caught up from our move last summer. The post is almost done and I just in the uploading of picture stages but, alas we have the internet usage issue. I think I just need a night to check into a hotel with NOTHING but wifi, a TV, and time to finish. Do I deserve that..why yes I think I do.

Anyway, we are on  a mini vacation and are having a blast. Daniel's mom came over so we decided to show her what the "area" has to offer! Currently, it is almost 1 am (excuse mistakes...exhausted) I am outside with everyone sleeping soundly inside...enjoying the cooler temps of New Mexico!

Yes that says 54 and trip over!

 So neat..the picture is horrible.... but they were amazing!

Today we visited Ruidoso, NM, hit up horse races, did some downtown eclectic shopping, and more fair shopping. We ended the day with a signature go to place of Farley's for Dinner. We had a blast!

Move out to way West TX

Well, we moved again. Another permanent move. Who knew when you went off the really weren't!  We our now way out in West TX. The move went as expected...with hick-ups!

We are used to it..I mean after almost 7 years. That doesn't mean we don't get mad or frustrated because we totally do!

Anyway, we got a late start because we almost had to make a trip to Sam's for new truck batteries. Thank you to Kasey for coming to our rescue and watching W for us while we figured things out!! I am also pretty sure W had a good time! I mean cuteness! 

So we finally loaded up and hit the road!

 And then bam...
 It was so hot! Daniel was a trooper and I kept the traffic shifted to the other lane as much as possible. While he changed the tire.
When the tire blew not only did it rip out part of the insulation under the 5th wheel it blew off the bearing cover (that is apparently important) and this place saved our life... We love Cameron Tire Center and were in and out in less than 15 min. Talk about customer service! They were so polite and wanted to make sure W was comfortable! So sweet!
Then a few miles down the road....BAM Again at 5:15 on July 3rd!
We may have lost our cool with this one. It was on the other side with more flying insulation as well as rv parks and a freak storm was about to open  up the sky. Luckily, I was able to look up that we were 6 miles to a tire shop (so we called and told them we were on our way) where we have road hazard isurance (this lesson was learned and it  is worth it) so we drove on the a horrible storm.while it hailed. and flooded. It was great! Our GPS freaked out and took us down a few dead ends but, in the end we made it! 

 I think someone had fun in this tire shop. He even got his very own pressure gage. Best.ever! So after getting that tire fixed and buying yet another spare we did what any normal family does and headed to Chick-fil-A.  To decomress and figured out a plan. This one however, didn't have a dining area or a fail! We ate outside and it was prefectly fine and little guy didn't know any different. He got to run around, eat some chicken, and have a little ice cream!

We decided to drive for a few more hours and spend the night on the road. We were all exhausted including the pups!

Not the best..but the only place that didn't gross us out when we walked in the office.  We hit the road mid morning and attempted to find a place for breakfast only to realize we were already out of town. LOL! So we snacked on crackers and cheese sticks. We also realized we weren't going through another actual town until we reach our destination so those snacks for W had to last until we arrived mid day...lovely...

This town is "interestingly interesting." I am still trying to form an opinion. In totally honesty, I am not impressed with this RV park. Like AT ALL! Hopefully it will grow on me or one of the many waiting lists we are on will call with an open spot! 

 W didn't care he was happy to celebrate 4th of July! We celebrated by getting set up, relaxing, playing outside, and finally and enjoying some Starburst candy! HA!

So that was the move, pretty typical for us! LOL!
Howdy from way out in West TX!
