The base is a pretty long drive back into town, so we made the best of staying on base.
There was an awesome park that we took Liam to.
We even grilled a few times at the park.
And saw our first native New Mexican wildlife creature...a TARANTULA!!!
We checked out the White Sands Heritage Museum.
While we were there, the hubby almost stepped on our
second native New Mexican wildlife creature we saw....a BULL SNAKE!!
To keep Liam busy, we took him to the aquatic center, which he loved
and went down the water slide by himself for the first time, took him to the movie
theater to see "The Avengers", and busted out the water guns for a water fight.
It was a fun time, but we only lasted a few days there due to
the drive into and back from town for meals, everyday things
at Walmart or Target.....So we decided to book another hotel in the city.
Luckily, we closed on our new house while we were there, so we were able to take
Sparky to the house to stay while we stayed in the hotel.
