We just returned from a vacation with my parents. We visited Santa Fe and other parts of Northern New Mexico and portions of Colorado and had a wonderful time! It was the first time the girls had been to New Mexico (and Rachel's first to Colorado), seen antelope, tasted green chile, or waded in a mountain stream and they loved it all! This will be the first of many blog posts about our trip.
It takes about 12 hours to drive from our house to Santa Fe, so even spread out over two days it is a loooong trip. The first morning in Santa Fe we visited the Plaza, the oldest part of the city and a big tourist attraction.
Rachel loved admiring the jewelry being sold by Indians under the arcade along one side of the plaza. She bought a little beaded bracelet and has proudly worn it every day since.
