We went to New Mexico to spend thanksgiving with my family! We had not been back to NM since our wedding and it was great to be home!
Adventures (and lots of pictures! -I am 22 weeks pregnant in all these pics):
Tuesday- Arrive in NM, Mani/Pedi's with Mom, Olive Garden, hang out with some friends I have not seen in a very long time.
Wednesday- Go to double eagle airport and hang out while my Dad takes Brett flying. He even let Brett fly the plane! Scary! Ride the tram up to the top of Sandia peak - it is the second longest tram ride in the world. Hike around at the top of the mountain. Brett jumped out from behind a ledge and scared me and my mom half to death. Eat a Silver Plate Travis at K&I diner. It is the NM version of Big Jud's.
|Cold morning- perfect for flying!|
|Ready to go!|
|Brett can say he flew this plane!|
|The boardwalk on top of the Sandia's!|
Friday- Shopping in Santa Fe and hiking in Bandalier! So much fun!
|Negotiating prices in Santa Fe|
|Cathedral in Santa Fe with "Miraculous Staircase"|
|Climbing Ladders in Bandalier!|
Saturday- Christmas decorating! Bowling, I guess my family bowls a lot now that Doug is on a bowling league! Garcia's kitchen, famous for their green chile. Home to Rexburg.
It was such a fun week! We really loved spending time with family and seeing all the sites of New Mexico! It is strange to think that the next time we see my parents- they will be grandparents!
I hope everyone is loving the transition into the Christmas season as much as I am!
