Happy Birthday, Dad!

On Friday, after Thanksgiving, Lynne and I loaded up the Suburban and took off for Las Cruces, New Mexico to help celebrate my father’s 80th birthday. His birthday is officially on November 30th, but Mom planned a “fiesta” celebration for him on Saturday. And, she did a great job. About 40 or so people showed up for food and drink, an Indian flautist and a mariachi band.

It takes about 12-13 hours to drive straight through. It is an easy trip though—725 miles straight down I25.

The trip was worth it. It was great to see my parents, my sister and many other family members that I had not seen since my sister’s wedding 8 years ago.

We came back, again in a single day, on Monday the 28th.
