Bocks in New Mexico

My mom and Jeff came out to visit us for a long weekend.  First stop?  Alcohol.  We did some wine tasting at Gruet winery (a much better than expected experience).

Jesse grilled some tasty salmon and we busted out the good china, crystal, and silver.  And bubbly, of course.

The next morning we took a tram ride and took pictures of the gorgeous view.

After spending a few hours at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, we all went to Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm for dinner.  It was a little over the top ($12 drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar anyone?) but the grounds were lovely and the food was incredibly good.

We spent Sunday at church and then on the couch for two World Cup games straight.  After that experience, we needed retail therapy so we headed out to Santa Fe on Monday.  We took the "turquoise trail" to Santa Fe and stopped in Madrid, where we saw some pretty and fun art pieces.  When in Santa Fe, we perused jewelry shops, hat shops, galleries, and had dinner at the Shed.

They leave bright and early (waaaay too early) tomorrow!
