Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta


The kids and I went down to Albuquerque this past weekend to see my Mom & Pete for my birthday & the Balloon Fiesta.  We haven’t been to the Fiesta in years.  Jason, Tara & Owen followed Amie & I down.  Easy drive – just straight south for 7 hours!  Amie and I took Owen with us part way down.  Had a blast – we sang at the top of our lungs (Owen likes Country music too), played “naming” games & made some “singing videos” which I will NOT be posting – LOL. When we finally got into Albuquerque I told Owen we’re just about there now and he said “Thank goodness, cause I was just about to loose all my patience”!! LOL – that kid just cracks me up! We all had a great time.  We went to “Old Town” Albuquerque did a little shopping, then off to the balloon fiesta.  Jason & Owen made me that candy container – sooooo cute!!!!! Amie got me the “immersion blender” I wanted.  So very excited to try some homemade soups soon!!  Thanks for everything Mom & Pete!!
