We started our 5 week journey yesterday morning and drove from Fort Smith all the way to Santa Fe, NM! My hubby is a master packer and fit EVERYTHING into and on top of our van. He’s so sexy! 💪🏽 Everything for cold weather, hot weather, hiking, fishing, camping and the beach for a family of 5! We made a pit stop in Amarillo to get donuts, because it was National Donut Day! We ended up scoring 15 donuts and 2 coffees for less than $5!!! The kids were stoked for the pit stop. While we stopped it started hailing outside, so we gobbled our delicious donuts and hung out for a few minutes! The shop was called the Donut Shop and it was retro and cute. I highly recommend it if you are passing through Amarillo! The drive once you get closer to Santa Fe, gets more beautiful. We saw the most gorgeous sunset, painted just by the good Lord himself, when were getting close to Santa Fe. See the pics in the blog! When we got to Santa Fe it was late, but we had to make a quick stop at Best Buy (we forgot something), and were famished. We ended up getting take out from Boxcar Bar and grill. Art and I split there adult mac n cheese and it was so good and spicy. The babies fell asleep in the car. We got to the yurt that we had booked through Airbnb and Bill and Robin greeted us. They showed us how to use their compost toilet and there pellet stove. They are big time into green living, which just enhanced our yurt experience! Very cool people! They own a roswell themed skating rink and pizza place here in Santa Fe, if you are ever in the area on a Friday night, definitely check it out! We all fell asleep quick, in hopes of big adventures the next day!
ps. The kiddos did excellent on the road trip! They are such little adventurers! 🚙
