a hike, NM

The next day after fishing, we decided to try another spot in the mountains for fishing. This place was very very hard to get too by car, I would never recommend it for anything other then a 4x4 truck or jeep. It was very scary, very steep and I bottomed out several time with my car. Soon as I got home to Colorado, I had to re-place the brakes on my car. It was however very beautiful and the view was amazing at the top. We didn't catch anything, but we did enjoy a very nice walk.

Fishing Eagle Nests Lake, NM

Part three of our New Mexico trip, we went fishing. It was my sons first time ever, he caught his first fish and was over the moon happy about it. All the fish were small, but it was still fun. I caught three myself. Was my family and it was memories that I'll keep forever. The view here was amazing, was a very pretty lake nestled in the mountains of New Mexico called Eagle's Nest Lake. We all brought our chairs and fished in sunshine for hours. No boat, shore fishing.

Being with family + Botanical Gardens

I miss my family, dearly. I live a state away from them and can't move to be with them. My sons father lives here in Colorado, so with visitations we won't be moving away anytime soon. So several times a year, we pack up and make the 7 hour drive to visit. My family comes here to CO as well, so we do get to see each other more then a few times. Time always seem to go by so quickly, then you leave with a hollow feeling in your heart. Caleb always takes it the hardest, he loves his grandma.

So we planned a summer vacation and got to enjoy a week off, in New Mexico. We did so many fun things, one in which was camping in a cabin way up in the mountains. I will break our vacation down in a few posts, took tons of pictures! The pictures from today were from the Albuquerque New Mexico botanical gardens.
