Well, if you read my post last Friday then you may know that this trip takes a turn, somewhere near Albuquerque, but we did manage to have a great time in spite of...well...you'll see.
We left home, our car packed for adventure. We were all ready to enjoy a long trip. The girls were excited. Cordelia is an old hand at car travel and knew the drill. Elise started out chanting, "New Mexico!" She was calling out, "Wanna go home," by the time we'd gone about thirty miles. Don't worry, she rallied and got into the groove of travel and enjoyed herself immensely.
We stopped in Cheyenne to check out Frontier park as day one was our longest day of driving. Frontier Park had a lake and gardens which we enjoyed for a quick picnic. When we were done eating we hit up the children's park, it was free and amazing!!! The girls went nuts!
When we were done in Cheyenne it was a straight shot to Trinidad, CO.
The next morning we headed to Santa Fe and spontaneously decided to swing through Taos. We loved the drive through the mountains of northern New Mexico and spent the afternoon in Taos. We grabbed some lunch, found an awesome children's play spot and then toured a museum before heading to Santa Fe for the night.
While in Santa Fe we hit up the plaza and visited galleries and touristy shops, the girls enjoyed all of the walking and people watching.
The next day we hit the road....on to the BEST part of our trip. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post.
