family vacation '13
First stop was El Paso and the El Paso Saddleblanket Co. My dad kept seeing signs and wanted stop and see what they had. They had lots of Mexican and Indian imports and these great wooden barstools that I took a pic and sent to Gigi and PopPop with an update on where we were. When Tom saw the pic he asked where we were and said we should go visit his cousin in El Paso. It turned out his cousin owned the Saddleblanket Co. and was there. We had a great visit with him, he gave us all t-shirts and a copy of his book and we shopped around. Then, were on our way again. We made it to Deming, New Mexico after dark, so we didn't get to see much but, had a great night of sleep. The girls slept in the bunk, boys slept in the toy hauler room, HR in the pack and play, R2 on a special pallet, Ben and I slept on the fold-out couch which was the most comfortable inflatable bed ever, and Mimi and PawPaw had their room.
