Good morning Carlsbad, New Mexico….
Micah made some new friends…
Here he is so proud of his big boy car seat (our late night purchase the night before).
We headed back to Carlsbad Caverns to see…. well…. the caverns.
The three older kids earned their Junior Ranger badges to add to their growing collections.
No pictures can do this created natural wonder justice! What an incredible place. Surreal, really. It is so quiet, so calm, slightly chilly and absolutely breath taking. We were all wowed!
Receiving their badges after completing all the required tasks….
One formal family picture before we got in the car and began the trek towards San Antonio….
he was pretty wiped out… still kinda weak from his carsickness episode the day before.
Pushpops and Ices always make for smiling kiddos.
This was another incredibly long day, mainly because we enjoyed ourselves and took our time at Carlsbad Caverns in the morning and we lost an hour with the time change. We had an (interesting…. ok gross…. actually burned-in-my-mind disgusting) experience at a small Texas town Sonic and finally pulled into a beautiful San Antonio campground well after midnight. The kids were starting to get the hang of the whole long drive thing and were handling the long hours like pros!
Tomorrow…. exploring San Antonio and no driving (well at least far)
