Traveling the Outer Limits Along the Way

We are on the road once more.  I threw together a last minute rockhunting trip to New Mexico (we love it there!) before the remaining minutes of summer have gone the way of the dodo.  I never plan our trips in advance, and my husband is always a good sport about taking another random willy-nilly unplanned Joanna adventure. The kids don’t have a choice, but they (usually) have fun once the eyerolls abate.

I love any place that can make a street light entertaining.

There’s no better way to take a stretch break after 12 hours in the car than popping into Roswell to grab some food and a few minutes of out of this world entertainment.

Really good eats can be found at Big D’s Downtown Dive!

The kids wanted to get on the road and go, but I feel like you should find the fun wherever you are if possible, so we dashed into the International UFO Museum & Research Center minutes before it closed.  It’s little so we didn’t need much time, but it did make us smile.  If you happen to be heading through there, it’s a fun stop.

This bad boy moves, but I don’t want to spoil all the fun by sharing the video.

The Iron Giant Lives!  (Except I think that he may be aluminum.  Or plastic.  Or pleather.)

 

I finally found an easy way to explain where babies really come from. At some point, every parent should have the birds, bees, and incubation chamber talk with their children.

I have yet to figure out why my kids roll their eyes whenever I mention that I have a surprise activity planned.  Please enlighten me if you have any suspicions. šŸ˜‰

***I will post rockhunting updates shortly.  Thanks!

Joanna

    Hi all! I’m going to be double dipping on my blogs this week since we are taking a end of summer road trip with the monkeys. We are pretty remote so I apologize for the delays in my responses. We have minimal access at best, so I’m writing these in the down time and posting whenever we get e glimpse of service. Have a great week! Joanna
