Weekend Getaway

Last week it rained a lot here. We got like 2 inches so needless to say everything was really wet around here. We decided to go somewhere for the weekend while we could cuz who knows when we'll get the chance again. So we went with a couple, Caleb and Holley, to Ruidoso. We left Friday night and came home Sunday afternoon. We had a lot of fun. On Friday night when we got there we decided we would go to the Inn of the Mountain Gods to the casino and play some slot machines since none of us really gamble we figured that would be about the easiest thing. Well I went in there with $9 in my wallet and well I lost it all. But the good thing was it was over about 3 hours so thats not too bad to spend 9 bucks for 3 hours of entertainment because that's all that really is. None of us went in there hoping to hit the big bucks we just wanted to have fun. Me and Holley played the penny slots the whole time. Holley accidently hit the Max Bet button on one of the machines and we thought she had lost like 90 cents lol but she got lucky and won $40 so we decided it was time to quit. I think Justin broke even or maybe won a couple dollars and Caleb didn't win anything like me. We must not be very lucky I guess. So Saturday we slept in and then drove up to the top of the mountain where the ski slopes are and rode the ski lift and just kinda enjoyed the scenery. The ride up there wasn't too fun with all the curves and being way high but we all made it safe and sound. That afternoon we just kind of relaxed and went out to eat and then went bowling and played pool at a little bowling alley there. And when I say little I mean little, it made Clovis's seem huge! But it was a lot of fun, and I have to say me and Holley totally kicked the boys butt on the second game of bowling! After we played a lot of pool we decided to go to the Inn again and Justin was going to play Blackjack this time since one of our neighbors was there and knew all about it. Well we go in there and me and Holley are going to play our penny slots again while the boys did there thing and I made the mistake of wanting to be a high roller and play with $20 dollars this time. We were there for like 30 minutes and I was up 4 cents!! And then it all went down from there....I got caught being too young because you have to be 21 to gamble and I'm only 20 so they took my $20.04! And me and Holley went home after we talked the boys into staying so it didn't ruin their night too. Justin learned to play some blackjack and ended up winning like $100 so that was good since I lost almost 30 dollars. That was pretty much the extent of our weekend we just came home on Sunday and it was back to reality once again. We did have a lot of fun and it sure was nice to get out of the area for a while!
