Can we all just agree that if the 4th of July falls on Tuesday, we should just take the entire week off? What a strange couple of days after a fun-filled weekend. My days are still off.
Anywho, a few months back we decided it was time for an extended family vacation. For the past 8 years we have spent the 4th at our lake house. It’s a crazy busy weekend, and with all of the boats on the lake we don’t get out a lot. We changed it up a bit this year and decided on a few days in the mountains! (I can’t take credit for the idea, shout out to my sister-in-law)
We live about 3 and a half hours from Ruidoso, a quaint little mountain town in New Mexico. They have horse races, golf, a casino, wineries, and a TON of restaurants. We snagged us an amazing cabin, called the cousins and planned a super fun getaway with the fam!
We arrived on Friday, went to the store and got settled in while everyone arrived. The weather was GORGEOUS. It warmed up to the mid eighties during the day, but the mornings and evenings were just perfect! A nice little break from the 100 degree weather at home.
The next day was spent golfing for some, hikes (really just walks) for others, and a lot of rest!
Sunday we went to the horse races. I have never been to any horse races before so I didn’t know what to expect. Guys, it was so fun. We spent a little extra for the Jockey Club tickets and spent the day drinking yummy drinks, eating and betting on some horses! I would go back again, FOR SURE!
The next two days we relaxed, ate great food, walked the town, visited a winery, and enjoyed the views. Definitely one of my most favorite memories.
