Home from Albuquerque

I got back from New Mexico today. I had such a great time hanging out with my good friends Brian, Kelli, their 2 boys Miles & Otis, Jared, and Brian's parents. It was a nice break from the usual craziness of life but it is also so good to be back with Camille, Josh & Jane!

Trip highlights:

WILCO!!!!!!!!!
Yummy New Mexican food
Getting to know Miles and Otis more
Catching up with old friends
Not worrying about responsibilities
Jazz winning in overtime
Petroglyph National Monument
Staying up till the middle of the night Saturday night talking to Jared, just like sleepovers from back in High School
The list could go on but I am tired.

Lowlights:
Buying 2 jars of excellent Trader Joes Spicy Black Bean Dip only to have it taken away by airport security. I guess it does have potential for some powerful side effects.
The fact that I bought my plane ticket before I realized that it was Mother's Day weekend. (We will be celebrating that next week)

What a fun weekend! Sorry about the black beans--I can send you a care package full of them.

Sounds like a fun trip! That's funny that you didn't realize it was Mother's Day!

uzJared had an awesome time. I am glad you guys got to hang out. Sure wish I could've been there, but hopefully we will see you sometime soon. I think I am coming to Utah this summer with the kids. I'll keep you posted.
