Our Memorial Day Weekend In Ruidoso, NM

We visited Ruidoso, New Mexico – which we do usually once a year.  It is about a 5 hour drive from Midland and gives us an escape to the mountains & cool weather.  Not to mention there is a horse track, casinos & for the ladies… shopping.

So this past weekend we did some of this…

Golf @ Ponderosa Pines in Cloudcroft, NM

Shala @ Ponderosa Pines in Cloudcroft NM

We stopped & smelled the “flowers”…

Needless to say, it was a great weekend in Ruidoso.  Not everything worked out as planned, we didn’t win big at the track or the casino… but we enjoyed be there.  Being with each other.  Being with our family.

How was your Memorial Day weekend?  Do anything fun?  How did you celebrate?  Do share.

  1. Looking at your pictures makes me want to head to the mountains. I love being up in the Colorado Rockies soaking in everything. The trout fishing is really fun. I want to take a fishing trip to New Mexico on the Red river. That is the best trout fishing river ever in my opinion.
