Carlsbad caverns

I have missed you! Life has been wonderfully busy. We had end of the school year festivities and lots of traveling. After a large loop through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, we are a little road tripped out. Relatives, camp, the beach, and minimal electronic devices- it was pretty great. One of our favorite stops was going to Carlsbad Caverns. It is a marvelous wonder. The scope and magnitude of it is matched by few other places. You should definitely go sometime. The boys were big enough they could walk this year. We went down through the big entrance and little lady rode in a baby carrier and nursed almost the entire way down. (I feel like I deserve an award for that one!) 

We weren't the only family of five out that day!





For the record, we made it up AND OUT before dawn. But somehow still missed the bats by about 10 min.

Thanks nice guy who took our picture.


At the entrance to the cave. It's A LOT bigger, farther, and steeper than it looks, but they didn't complain one time.

Oh, and these guys earned their Junior Ranger badges.
