I’m going to do my best to keep posting as regularly as possible while we’re on the road. I’ll save the actual show recaps for when I’m back and have a real computer and wifi and all that good stuff, but I figured I’d keep a little journal of sorts about what’s going on behind the scenes while we’re gone. Forgive me in advance for whatever may look wonky on your screen, especially pictures… I’m having to do this from my phone.
I’ll be honest – Day 1 and 2 are gonna be a little boring since they’re travel days. There’s not a lot of riveting content when you’re driving 16 hours.
We rolled out dark and early at 6am on Wednesday, and luckily the drive was quite uneventful. All but 20ish minutes of the entire first day was spent just getting out of Texas, so it seemed to drag on forever.
We stopped after about 4 hours to let them stretch their legs and get some water…
But even with that pit stop we pulled into our layover spot in New Mexico around 2. The boys were quite mesmerized with the wide open spaces and mini dust storm. I, on the other hand, was less of a fan. Omg sand everywhere.
Once they settled in, had some hay, drank some water, and ate dinner, we hopped on them for a little bareback hack around the farm to stretch their legs.
Both boys were very forward and happy to be out marching around. We were thrilled that they were so perky and seemed perfectly content after 8 hours in the trailer… neither of them is accustomed to such a long trip like this.
After our ride we topped off their buckets, tossed more hay, and tucked them in for the night. Then it was off to DINNER (aka eating my weight in mashed potatoes and cream corn). One more 8 hour leg and then WE’RE THERE!
