We took a trip to visit my mom in Albuquerque this month. I’m so glad we had a chance to go! I didn’t think we would be able to make it out there this summer with my husband’s schedule, but we were able to squeeze it in right before school started.
As I’ve mentioned before, one of our favorite things to do wherever we travel is visit the local botanical garden. I love walking around with my family, taking photos, enjoying the beautiful weather. Albuquerque is hot, but not humid, and the blue skies can’t be beat. It all makes for a lovely day.
During our visit we also made a trip up to Santa Fe to see Meow Wolf, which is an interactive art exhibit. It was unlike anything we have ever done; it was a lot of fun and a very unique experience! My daughter really enjoyed it.
And we spent plenty of time with my mom. She and my daughter are very close, and they enjoyed many Monopoly games together.
These are her hens and chicks. She has grown them for years and they have really taken over their little space!
(I hope in our next house we have a sunroom, as I would like to print one of these on canvas and hang it in there! Part of my heart is always in the Southwest wherever we live, and I love having those reminders in our home.)
All in all it was a nice respite from our busy summer. Now school is back in session and we are looking forward to fall. Summer slipped through our fingers much too quickly!
