Exploring New Mexico

My family moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico when I was a Junior in High School. It was definitely hard to move, but I have really come to love the unique, hippy atmosphere! It really is so different than anywhere in the U.S. (I felt like I had moved to another country!). The Santa Fe Plaza is one of my favorite spots. 
Later in the week, we spent a whole day showing Scott Taos, New Mexico. It's a quaint little ski town not too far from Santa Fe. In true New Mexican style, there is a great Plaza with lots of fun shops, art galleries and restaurants. Scott again took on a ginormous burger and we spent a good amount of time at the famous toy store. Taos is known for it's amazing ski resort and the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge (it's 565 feet above the rio grand and the 7th highest bridge in the US).
This little girl is too funny.
Ha ha ha....
When we walked into the back of the toy store Emily said, "Is this real life, or is this fairytale land?"

Family Time

I've mentioned more than a few times how much I love my family. It was so much fun to be able to spend last week hanging with them! As soon as we got into town we headed out to dinner and a movie to celebrate my little brothers 16th Birthday.

Scott ordered this MASSIVE green chile cheeseburger (he said it was the best burger he has ever had!). Everyone enjoyed watching him try to eat it.
^This is what happens when Scott gets the camera^ 
This little girl is so fun. We're playing some sort of make-believe game here outside of the movie theater. 
Happy Birthday bud!
The camera comes out and she's ready to have her picture taken. 
Emily was so excited for Nick to open this present.
Haha. It's a blurry picture but it shows how funny Emily thought the cheese balls were.

Santa Fe Doors

This past week Scott and I went down to New Mexico to visit my family. 
Santa Fe is such a cool and unique place.
One morning we went on a morning walk around downtown. I love Santa Fe architecture. Each house is so different from the next and there is so much intermingled art. There is also a lot more green and flowers than you would expect in New Mexico!
