It rained all day one day and we called it the lazy campground day. Mom worked on laundry pretty much all day. When she finished we headed to the game room so I could shoot darts and play foosball. I opted for a game of Monopoly. Emmerson and Dad joined us after the game for some family foosball.
After nearly two solid days of freezing rain it finally cleared up. Our site at the Carlsbad KOA was fantastic. We had a huge fire pit, a covered picnic table and even a patio swing!
Since it was sunny we headed out to a place called the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens. They had mock habitat for the region and lots of local animals.
I loved the javalina!
We sniffed every flower and plant that was in bloom.
The prairie dogs were really entertaining. We have seen several in the wild but it was fun to see how they interacted with each other.
We have also seen a LOT of tumbleweeds. This was the biggest one we have seen so far. When we drive they are always blowing across the roads.
When we finished at the zoo and gardens we headed to Playground on the Pecos. It was a giant wooden playground that you could play in for hours and still not see everything.
When we got home we rode our bikes for a while and played on the playground with the digger toy in the shade.
We did get to swim the first day at the campground but once the rain started we were too cold. This photo was from Daddy, we forgot to add that.
Our time at Carlsbad is up and we move on in the morning.
