Day Tripper

Back before we had our leeches little pumpkins, we would always head to Santa Fe while visiting Janice and Norman in Rio Rancho.  Our day trip was great fun and always included lunch at Tomasita's, shopping at Jackalope, drinks at Maria's, and gambling at Sandia on the way back to Rio Rancho.

Skip ahead two years.  Feeling stupid ambitious, we ventured out on our little day trip with the girls.  This time, Santa Fe included lunch at Tomasita's (some things never change!), discovery at the Children's Museum, and shopping at the produce stand for two bushels of roasted Hatch green chili.
Bryon's Mecca--Just look at that smile!

Scheming her next shenanigan

Oh, come on, it isn't THAT hot.  (Just kidding.  We didn't make her eat it!)

Hard to tell, but Shelby is covering her ears from the sound of the chili roasters
It was definitely a different trip than before, but we had a great time viewing Bryon's hometown through the eyes of our kids.  I can't wait until they are old enough to roll their eyes at me while I tell them for the twentieth time, "See the Loretto Chapel?  That's where Mommy and Daddy got married."
