A European Retrospective

I know that this blog is supposed to be about our life here in NM, but I also realize that we have never shown anyone our pictures from our trip to Europe that we took SIX MONTHS AGO! So, here are a few select, and very belated, snapshots to highlight our Venetian and Parisian travels.

Balloon Fiesta!

It's time for Albuquerque's most famous event, the Balloon Fiesta! Hundreds of hot air balloons, from all over the world, converge on Albuquerque to make a mess of traffic on the ground and in the air. Floating aimlessly is never a good recipe for orderliness, but it does make for spectacular views against the backdrop of the endless desert. The fiesta lasts about one week. Some days, depending on the wind, the balloons float off towards Colorado. Other days they muck up business in downtown Albuquerque. Krystle and I went the opening weekend, enjoyed ourselves immensely, and snapped way too many pictures. An edited set is below, enjoy!

Does anyone else think it would be awesome to see ASIMO fight the blue dragon Godzilla style?
