Aaron's first weekend in Albuquerque!
Aaron being in Albuquerque is amazing. We have been having the best time! He arrived at 2:00 am Albuquerque time on Saturday morning (5:00 am Halifax time). After sleeping for most of the morning, we went for a long swim in the pool, followed by an adventure in the mountains! We drove up to the East Side of the Mountains for a picnic, then continued on to the crest. From there, we hiked along the top of the Sandia Mountains, at about 11,000 feet above sea level, to the Tram House. It was an absolutely beautiful day, and it was a perfect place to enjoy the summer solstice. Sunday we spend at the Rail Yards Market, and had incredible huevos rancheros from one of the food trucks and looking at all the wonderful local products and produce. We also swung by the Rio Grande and Tingley Beach while we were in the area! It was pretty much the greatest weekend ever. I love showing Aaron around, and he has really loved everything so far, especially the food. Every single meal he has eaten here has had green chile in it!
