The Wild Wild West!

I’ve received evidence that the Wild Wild West has gotten even wilder this week!

Look at the photos I received in an email!

My second son, his wife and son and my youngest son are in New Mexico this week!

And here was the message,

“From New Mexico, wish you were here!”

They’re all grown up! And now our grandson (in the middle) is the age of his Dad in the ‘old’ photo! How time flies! And what great memories!

Oh how wonderful is that? I love that camping gear they have on top of the jeep? What is that gadget? I need one of those, really. Would it fit on a Tahoe? Great looking bunch!

Such beauty out west. Now what is the tent on top of the car. I see a ladder. They don't sleep on the top of the car.
Hope your holiday weekend has been nice. When I see Santa I will tell him about the dolls.

Vee said...

It's fun to see your family having so much fun! One of those guys looks a lot like his mom!

Sally Crowe said...

Oh, I know they're having fun and I know you wish you were there with them. Yes, they grow up so fast it's hard to keep up!

Nice looking family, Diane.

Musings from Kim K. said...

We loved our trip our west. Such amazing memories with our girls. I love these photos. Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving. I'm getting caught up on blogs while we were away.

New Mexico looks pretty cold or should I say the travelers look all bundled up. Isn't the desert pretty? The grandchildren do grow up quickly and change so much, don't they?

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

What great shots! I like that little tent set up they have.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Looks like a great vacation they are on! :)

Cattails said...

What fun photos and memories!

Montanagirl said...

What fun memories!!

September Violets said...

Lots of big smiles in the photos! Interesting tent set-up. I'm trying to figure out the reasoning for putting your tent up there ... flooding? animals? because they can? Maybe it's an American thing ;) Wendy x

Inger said...

What great pictures of your family. And you are right, time does fly!

Red Rose Alley said...

What handsome men you have in your family, Diane. Yes, they do grow up fast. I can't believe my oldest is 33!

love,
~Sheri

Doreen@househoneys said...

Diane, I have to ask...your grandson, who is in the last picture, it looks like he's wearing the exact same clothes, hat and all, as his father was? Am I seeing things? I had to look a few times because I thought it was the same person! I still do! lol

Butterfly 8)(8 Bungalow said...

Very cool photos. Were you near Gallup or Sky City? xoxo I once lived in north eastern Arizona/ north west New Mexico.

Cranberry Morning said...

This is so fun, Diane! Back to the same place 30 years later. Wouldn't it have been fun to be there too. Wonderful photos. Have a blessed Lord's Day.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Oh, wish I were with them! Beautiful scenery. Such handsome 'boys'! They do grow up fast! xo Karen

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

It IS fun to look back at old photos of the kids!! That Pup tent on top of the car is NEAT!!!! To stay away for the critters???? Snakes??? and whatever???

Karen Ann said...
