We're back from a Spring Break roadtrip to Taos, NM with my parents. It's so much easier travelling with older children. There are no tantrums and few fights, and we're LOVING it. Taos is beautiful in a "let it be" sort of way. Peeling paint, old adobe, rambling sage bushes. They don't seem to strive for perfection in the way that we midwesterners do with our McMansions and manicured green lawns. Plus there's art everywhere. It felt good there. We spent lots of time outdoors- skiing and hiking, sitting in the hot tub, and rambling about town. The kids were rock-stars at the skiing. Seriously. We cooked most of our meals in the condo, but had a few nice meals out too. Old Martina's Hall was our favorite- beautiful rehabbed building and amazing food. The toy store in town was adorable. There was yet another snow storm here while we were gone. It's melted now. And we're back into the groove again at home. I'm getting ready for the upcoming shop weekend, Brian is working on the bathroom, and the kids are enjoying just a little bit of warmer weather. Happy Easter, friends!
