Welcome back to Flashback Friday. Today I’m going to go back to March 2010 and write a little about the first stop on the boys’ first long trip- Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Connor was 3 and JT was nine months and we were going on a trip for my mom’s graduation. Her graduation was in Phoenix and the first place we drove to was Las Cruces. Las Cruces is about an eight hour drive from here.
When we arrived in Las Cruces we checked in at our hotel. It was the Ramada Palms; I picked it because a saw it on the back of the Las Cruces Travel Guide and it looked nice. Connor was very excited to be at the hotel. I mostly have a bunch of blurry pictures though but here are the best three.
The first place we visited in Las Cruces was the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum.
After we left we also went to the Las Cruces Railroad Museum of which I only have one picture.
We also went to the Las Cruces Museum of Natural History which is now called the Las Cruces Museum of Nature and Science. It was in the mall though and very small when we went.
Chuck E. Cheese was also in the mall and we went there too.
The next day we continued on to Phoenix and I will write about that next Friday.
