Visitors to the Land of Enchantment

We were so excited when we heard that Josh and Eliza (Christian's sister and husband) were coming to visit us here in Albuquerque. They brought their two little cuties, Belle and Abe and we had a blast. Oliver and Abe hit it off in about 1 minute and weren't seen without each other for basically the rest of the week. Abe sent Oliver laughing to the floor on numerous occasions and they just ran around and played- it was seriously the cutest thing I have seen in a long time. We covered a lot of bases with them, too- Old Town Albuquerque, lunch with my lunch group, Santa Fe, shopping, movies, games, night out with some friends, etc., etc. We had so much fun hanging out with Josh and Eliza and I especially enjoyed my one-on-one shopping trip with Eliza (it's sooooo nice to get out with girls, no kids, and just shop). So, here's some fun pics from the week:

Old Town Albuquerque at the church grounds

We finally got these two guys to settle down for a sec while we got a picture.

Probably up to no good, these two...

Oliver loooovvveeedd this drum in Santa Fe.
Getting ready for the long drive back to Utah, with full tummies:)

Isn't she the cutest little bug you've ever seen (Belle)???

Some last-minute mischief before Abey had to leave...

cute pictures, I didn't know you took that many. Thanks again, we really had a blast, you were the perfect hosts! and sorry we were so lame and boring we really were coming down with some nasty sickness that were still not over! and yes, I love the new template.

Girl shopping sounds so nice! Can I come to ABQ and go shopping with you?

sounds like a fun trip! It is always so fun to host visitors when you live away, I miss that. I am not sure if I miss grumpy Christian coming out to DC to see us with all of lame houses and lame things to see in our nations capitol, but I do miss being the host to visitors and showing them what I think was some pretty great stuff.

Also, love the snake backdrop...was that a Christian choice or a Rebecca choice??

BTW, this is macy

Totally agree with Macy. Made me remember the good old days having company stay. Good times. Sounds like you guys are fabulous hosts. Eliza raved about your cooking, Rebecca!

Great pictures. I really appreciate you posting them. Sounds like such a great trip. You'll always remember this. How cool is it that Abe and Ollie get along so well? I love that. I HATE your backdrop. Sharks and tigers would be better, fer sher!!! Christian....!!!
