Bryce Sings the Hits



Bryce, 16 months, sings some favorites, with a little off-key help from Papa. Also, a somewhat awkward face-plant.

Botanical Gardens





Had a lovely day at the Albuquerque Botanical Gardens on Sunday. I particularly enjoyed walking through the children's garden, and Bryce liked touching the giant ant. There's also an enormous pumpkin you walk through with giant seeds dangling in netting to look like pumpkin guts. It's incredibly cool. As soon as it gets cool, I intend to spend a lot of time there. As it is, we've pretty much got to get out by 10:00 a.m. to escape the heat. Thank goodness our membership includes the aquarium, and that it's right next to the botanical gardens. This is by far the best birthday gift I've received in years. Thanks everyone! And thanks for the bike, dad!!

Camping Pictures







Had a great time camping last week at Big Tesuque campground (sans our own little Tesuque). Sharka, Bryce, Ty and I had a wonderful time, despite getting run off the mountain at 2:00 a.m. due to lightning and heavy rain. The tent held up beautifully, though, and everything inside it was still nice and dry when we broke it down at 9:00 a.m. The wildflowers were amazing, and the stars were incredible. We'll definitely be going again, hopefully soon. Oh, and in case you're ever in the Santa Fe area, it's a free campsite and a great place to stay less than 20 minutes' drive into town.
