Albuquerque Day 2


My Mom said that she forgot how slow 10 year old are when it's 4:45 in the morning! I didn't realize that Blackberries don't reset themselves to the correct time when they get to a new time zone... so instead of Pave and I waking up at 4:30... yep, you guessed it 3:30! I didn't realize it until I walked through my parents kitchen to go wake up Aleigha... and saw the clock 3:59am! Needless to say, Pave wasn't so happy, we climbed back in bed for an hour, and then got up to brave the crowds. We had a great time, but there was LOTS of lines...

Lines to get on the bus
Lines to buy your ticket
Lines for yummy breakfast burritos
Lines to get close to the balloons
Lines to buy Aleigha a sweatshirt she wanted "more then anything in the world Grandma!!"
Lines to get back on the bus to get back to our car

It was a long morning. But fun. Now, on with the pictures!


  1. Wow! That's so cool. Makes the balloon festivals here in Texas look like nothing.

  2. Oh how FUN!! That's beautiful! We rode in a hot air balloon while in Phoenix and I LOVED it. I thought I was going to be terrified since I don't like heights, but it wasn't bad at all. There were only 4 of them in the air at the time--nothing like your pics--those are awesome!!
