All About Albuquerque

We came back from Albuquerque in time for the last weekend of the balloon fiesta.  We didn't get over to the balloon fiesta park, but we live close enough that the balloons come to us.

See what I mean?!?

This picture looks like the creepy funky hen is pooping perching on our house.

Unfortunately, Albuquerque isn't all balloons and sun.  There are also spiders.  Poisonous spiders.  Until recently, I have never ever seen a black widow spider in real life.  Then Jesse spotted a HUGE one in our back yard right on the other side of our patio door.  The exterminator was brought in asap!  When he came, he said he got rid of three (!) black widow spider nests.  And the next week we found another black widow spider in our garage (we only had them spray outside the house).  Needless to say, we will have routine spays from now on.  =S


  1. Those balloons are very closed but it is very neat.

    SCARY SPIDERS!!!! =(
    SHHHHHHHHHH.... Rachel will NEVER come visit again..

  3. Grr...Wells Fargo is lurking everywhere! That must have been neat to see all the balloons though! And yikes about the spiders! Can't believe you had those nests and never saw them before. Good thing you took care of them!
