I took off Wednesday because I was originally going to head out to Albuquerque then, but flights didn't work my way so instead I ran some errands and then headed over to Disney's Animal Kingdom for some animals and fun. After Animal Kingdom we headed over to Hollywood Studios for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights.
I ended up getting food poisoning and was up almost all night just in time for my 6 am flight Thursday. Luckily I made it out there with no problems other than my suitcase breaking. Once I got to Albuquerque my mom picked me up and we headed to my parents house to surprise my dad who had no clue I was coming. It was great to get to surprise him, I don't think I'll ever forget the look on his face!
Friday we headed up to Santa Fe where my parents go skiing every year. Yup, my parents are avid skiers! I have to admit they're pretty cool. It was the first time I had seen snow in about 10 years so I was pretty excited.
After Santa Fe we headed back to Albuquerque and took the tram to the top of Sandia mountain which had gorgeous views but was downright frigid out! Before heading back down we stopped for some coffee with Bailey's and Frangelico to warm up.
Saturday we headed up to Bandelier which is a high national forest area with ancient cave dwellings. It was really fun getting to explore that area and see how people lived back then. Not to mention the canyon was gorgeous.
After that we drove through a creepy little town called Los Alamos before heading to a place called Tent Rocks which was only 13 miles away technically but you had to drive 74 miles around to get to it. I felt awful because we had no clue it was that far away and I got kinda upset when I didn't think we'd make it but my dad is amazing and got us there with just enough time to explore a bit before the park closed.
Sunday I headed back bright and early, not quite ready to leave beautiful New Mexico but I know I will definitely be back! Sooner rather than later! Hope everyone has a fabulous week!
