Several miles north of Carlsbad, New Mexico, we found a primitive lakeside camping spot at Brantley Lake State Park.The children played along the water for several hours, experimenting, creating, wading, and eventually.... swimming!
|squishing sand into mud to build canal walls and dams|
|Shannon figuring out the charging system and fixing antifreeze leak ( notice RV hood up)|
Shannon fired up the generator so we could grind wheat to replenish our bread and tortilla supply.
|Caroline wanted to treat everyone to a snack with some gifted travel $. She started out with a bag of mixed Cheetos, Doritoes, & CheezIts, but we realized she could get 4 bags of Cheese Puffs for 1 of the other, so Puffs it was!|
|Lunch...first time to use the awning!|
The little girls were excited to play on 2 different playground jungle gyms. Riley even liked the zip line slider.
We all got timer showers here...had to push the button every 30 seconds to keep the water coming!
Such a peaceful, quiet spot.
