Just like last years trek to Las Vegas we stopped in at American RV Park for a week. It is one of our favorite stops. The park is clean and very nice. Great views and even though you are right off the interstate road noise is minimal.

Last year Michael had a bit of trouble adjusting to the elevation, this year it was my turn. Thankfully, the Sports Authority carries Boost Oxygen. This is the second time it has saved us in Albuquerque so we’ve decided to just keep it on hand. After a few deep breaths my headache subsided and I didn’t feel like I couldn’t catch my breath. A good thing about them as well is that they donate to the Wounded Warrior Project – as an Army Brat / Navy Wife — this means a lot to me.

It rained quite a bit while we were there which was nice for cloud gazing, bad that we once again did not take the tram to the top of Sandia Crest. =( But we managed to snag some delicious noms at Rad(ish) downtown. I had Lasag”NAW” with Eggplant “noodles” — it was amazing. And don’t even get me started on the Cuppycakes. I made a stop in at New Mexico Tea Company where I managed to restrain myself. I am a tea addict and a wall of speciality teas hand blended was almost too much of a temptation. Not to mention the beautiful artwork on the labels. I did manage to find some lovely ginger black tea that is my new morning favorite.

Since Michael was on the clock for his day gig we didn’t get out and do too much but we managed to snag some delicious eats and make new friends and that is really what it is all about.

We are now back in Las Vegas and spending time with loved ones — Cinder had her appointment with our regular vet, Dr. G at Legacy Animal Hospital, and other than the wobbles thanks to her long dachshund body and spine issues she is healthy. Since I can relate to spine woes we are extra sensitive to her needs and have purchased her a stroller so we can still walk the pups but don’t have to worry about over exerting her trying to wear Dexter out. Yes, we have become THOSE PET PEOPLE. Anything for the babies.
