Missing In Action - Spring Break

It seems like forever since we chatted.  Bad me!!
So many things have been going on.  With two businesses, three teenagers, one husband and many church activities life gets a little hectic!!
Spring Break 2012!
My Daughter volunteered my cupcake baking abilities for her friend's birthday.  Pink Champagne with green frosting.  They turned out so pretty, I had to share! 

Hubby and I worked through Thursday morning, then we loaded into the Beemer with Dré and Domi and headed off to...da, da, da, DAAAA...
Santa Fe, New Mexico!!
(Coco is in cosmetology school and couldn't go :(  )
First stop...Albuquerque for the night.  As we were driving to our yucky motel, Domi  saw a sign for the zoo.  I'm not a big zoo fan but if you're ever in Albuquerque, you HAVE to go!!  Cheap, lots of great animals, up close and out!!  Not like my local zoo.  

Then off to lunch.  We really didn't know where to go (don't care for the usual fast food).  We ended up in downtown, saw a pizza place, parked so we could go there. As we were walking, we walked by a noodle bar and had a change of taste!!

Not exactly Dré's favorite meal (too many veggies!)

Then off to the great outdoors, Tent Rock National Monument
and a "little" hiking.

We were shot after this adventure!! Lots of dust, Juniper Trees blooming, major allergy issues.

Off to Santa Fe and our beautiful resort!!  Needless to say, we didn't do anything that night but order pizza and watch TV.

Saturday we were off to visit the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.  It was great to learn more about her as a person and see the range of her art.

Then we went exploring.  I love architecture and even though I live in the South West, it is so different than my area of the world.

Well I guess these aren't such good examples of the architecture :)
Sunday we headed home...not realizing that we were going to be in the worst snowstorm of the year in Arizona.  It started with blowing sand through New Mexico (Bad enough that Hubby needs a new windshield and the front end of his car repainted).  And turned into rain, sleet and snow, lots of snow.  To let you in on a little secret, I've never been in a snow storm, yes it's true! I've lived in the Phoenix area since first grade!!  Sorry, it does snow on rare occasions and you're lucky if you can see it before it melts on your windshield!

We ended up having to spend the night in Showlow.  We made the best of it, stayed warm and made it home so we could work Monday afternoon.

Whew...I'm tired all over again!

Have a blessed Easter!
