Out in the West Texas Town – El Paso, TX

We are enjoying El Paso and our family so much I forgot about the blog! In fact, we’ve delayed leaving more than once. We keep joking with Uncle Dusty and Aunt Bebe that we are just gonna stay in their driveway forever. They are such warm people, welcoming us into their home and driveway without…
