Angel Fire, Taos, and Tubing....

Thanks for sticking with me for my week of vacation pictures.  This is scenery from Angel Fire.  Isn't it pretty?  Remember click on any collage to enlarge it.
We roamed around the square in Taos one afternoon.

Finally, some tubing fun.  I had never tubed before and it was a BLAST!!!

We had sooooo much fun.  I am definitely ready to pack up and go on another vacation.  Tomorrow I'll show you some Etsy cuties I bought and Monday back to menu planning.  Enjoy your weekend.♥

Darlene, your photo journaling is so FUN!!! Makes me want to load up and head west. What program do you make your collages with? I love 'em!

I think tubing would be my favorite. I've enjoyed taking a virtual vacation with you - thanks for all the pictures.
Also, thanks for your kind words regarding our Murphy. It's been a rough week & I still think I see her out of the corner of my eye sometimes, but we're adjusting. Those little furry animals sure do weave themselves into our hearts, don't they?
Hope you have a great weekend & maybe even some warm weather.

Stacey said...

That looks like blast to me! I agree with Duchess...tubing would be my favorite part too. :)

What beautiful scenery. You all look like you are so happy and having such a good time. Great memories.We got so much rain Wed that yesterday was useless--the ground is soggy. Today maybe we will dry out some with the sun and wind. Enjoy the weekend. Can't wait to see what you found at Etsy.

Amelia said...

The "tubing" looks like a lot of fun...enjoyed seeing all the pictures.

Have a great weekend - enjoy the fact that knowing warm weather will soon be here.

Laura said...

You all looked like you had such a relaxing, fun time! And I see Lexi has the knack of finding a cute dog in one of the stores - that reminds me of myself! Great pictures - a beautiful place.

Heather said...

Kerin said...

What a great vacation!
I've never been to Taos. Would you go again, and if so what was the one thing you would want to see or do?
Tubing looks like a blast. Head first huh... you brave girl!
Have a wonderful day!

HI Darlene! Oh, what fun! We love Taos and haven't been in forever! It's such a great place. We used to live in Roswell many years ago and would travel to Taos. Did you like the Mexican food? We think New Mexico has the best.
Oh, the tubing looks fun! I know you've had a great time!
Thanks for popping in to see our little Carter! We're just thrilled.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Wonderful mosaics of your fabulous get-away Darlene! What fun :-D

Isn't tubing fun? You get to play in the snow, feel the thrill of gliding through snow and yet you still feel safe :) Glad you had such a fabulous time!

Caren said...

Oh my Gosh Darlene! I haven't been here in so long... of course, I haven't been on my blog either. ;) Your pictures are fantastic, it looks like a beautiful place to visit. I have never been skiing and don't know if I'll ever try it, CityMomma/CountryMomma could also add ClumsyMomma to her title! ;) The tubing would be way more up my alley. Lexi is adorable as usual. The Son would love her, he goes for the older girls. Have a great weekend!

Linda said...

That snow tubing looks like a blast...maybe next year I will give it a try! HAPPY SPRING!

Hi Darlene
Your collages are great. You really do look to have had the most amazing time. I have tubed once but it was indoors at a real snow ski slope we have near here. I loved it too. I felt it was not as dangerous as skiing!
Have a great weekend.

Christina said...

Tubing looks like so much fun. I would definitely try that---skiing would terrify me. You both look like you were having the best time.

Judi said...

Hi Darlene
Fun pictures! Good for you for going tubing...I don't know whether I!

Thats a nice collage of special memories. It really looks liked a great time.

Hope you are having a great weekend.

I haven't gone tubing since I was a kid. I remember clearly running into a barbed wire fence. Ouch.
