Misc ABQ Adventures

On our vacation we did some misc "stuff" over the couple of days that I did get a chance to share.

First, if you see Avery wearing the same outfit or skirt it's probably because she wore the same skirt 3 times and the same dress twice.  My child is in a princess phase.  She has an aversion to pants and shirts that aren't pink.  The pink shirt thing is fairly new and luckily wasn't an issue during vacation however, it was quite a battle to get her to wear pants. 

Balloon Fiesta Park
Anyway, the first time we headed out to Balloon Fiesta park, we went for a Night Glow.  However, the wind was too high so no balloons got blown up.  We got to the park late afternoon/early evening so the girls had a chance to play before we found out the festivities were cancelled.

Hannah and Avery we brave enough to get their picture taken with the big cows. 
The girls had a grand time doing their gymnastic tricks on the big lawn.

Hannah tried to teach the girls to do cartwheels. 
I don't think Avery got the gist.
Chloe gave it her best shot.

Old Town
Have you been to Old Town in Sante Fe?  Well, the ABQ has their version too.  It's not as cool but its a great place to spend a few hours. 

Avery got to pick out a bracelet from a street vendor.  She's so stylish.

Silly bands and turquoise.  New fashion trend.  Watch for it on the runways next spring!

There's even an old Catholic church.  Don't you love the beauty of Catholic churches.  This church was built in the 1700's I think.  Someonegot for to charge their camera battery so this is the last picture she took in Old Town.  Vacation tip: Never, ever think that your battery doesn't need to be charged!
I love the color of this old truck. 
In front of one of the little shops, there was a big Noah's Ark blow up.  The girls had a grand time playing with all the animals.

I love this picture of Hannah.  First, i'm pretty sure Hannah took more pictures than me on this vacation.  She had her camera with her wherever we went!  Second, R pointed out the guy behind Hannah...see him?  We're pretty sure he's a zombie.  WATCH OUT HANNAH!

Balloon Museum
In front of Balloon Fiesta Park is the Hot Air Balloon museum.  We had some time to kill so we decided to check it out. 
Hannah was such a big helper on our trip.  Avery wanted to be doing anything that Hannah was doing and holding her hand at all times. 
Such a big girl!
My child's mouth and a hot air balloon basket. She's weird.
Up, up and Away!
The girls loved this "fire". I think it was the best thing about the museum.
I won't bore you with pictures of the hot air balloon museum exhibits.  I mean really, who cares unless you are there right? Well, if you are ever there, take some time and check it out.  It's pretty cool!

The last night we were in the ABQ, we were going to the Glowdeo. Since we had some time to kill, we picked up a few kites and took advantage of the wind.

Our kite was sub-par and kept taking a nose dive.  I guess thats what you get when you pay $4.  But Avery loved it and R got to help her with it.

We really had a great time in the ABQ. I wish I would have taken pictures of all the awesome places we ate.  I am definitely hooked on green chiles! It was a great trip and would love to go back again someday!

More adventures to come.
