Yesterday we hung out in Santa Fe to take it in and get some things done. Though I looked hard for something I might want as a gift for Mother's Day, everything pales in comparison to just being on the trip itself. But, I did manage to find a great shirt for Mike and the perfect sun hat for Rosie. And Mike gave me the gift of time by taking the kids to get haircuts so I could walk around by myself, an unexpected luxury.
Today is Mother's Day and we are in Bandelier National Park. A gem of a national park, not too big, adventurous and beautiful. It will certainly go down as one of my top Mother's Days. I feel very lucky indeed.
