I can’t believe Woztober is already half over. How on Earth did that happen? Needless to say, it’s already been a great month.
We started off the month in New England. While the occasion was one that was sad, I found a lot of happiness in that trip. I got to hear my father-in-law pay a moving tribute to his father (someone I would have loved to meet), visited the place where my sweetheart of a husband grew up, and had my very first cider donut. (Ask Russ how many HE ate! 😉 )
Sadly, I forgot my camera and we had to buy a little disposable jobby on our way into Brattleboro, VT. It LOOKED like a perfectly good camera but when I took it to get developed here they seemed sort of shocked. “We didn’t sell you this camera did we?” Turns out it was a wee bit old and our pictures didn’t turn out the best. 😦 We aren’t too worried, though, because we know we’ll visit again when The Dot is a few years old so daddy can show him/her around. 😀 Here are Russ’ favorite from our trip:
After our ridiculously long day of traveling back to ABQ, we had one day to recover (not enough!) and were back to work on Monday. Only for that day though because we had visitors to pick up from the airport that night. 😀 The whirlwind continued with my family in town and all the things we wanted to show them.
After the fam went on their first hot air balloon ride ever that morning, Papo said he wanted to eat in little “hole in the wall” places with good food. We knew exactly where to go. Here are the boys after grubbing at Bobcat Ranch in Santa Fe.
With it being Balloon Fiesta, we were up EARLY the next morning to view the Mass Ascension. It was worth getting up to see!
The next day we headed up to Sandia Peak. It was about 49 degrees on the mountain but with the sun shining bright, it was actually pretty warm.
And of course, it wouldn’t have been a get together without this one:
So that’s where it went! 😀 What a whirlwind indeed.
