Along the Turqoise Trail

This past Saturday we decided to take advantage of the 70 degree weather and head outside. We went exploring to a little historic town called Cerrillos. It is on the Turqoise Trail which was the main thoroughfare from Albuquerque to Santa Fe before the interstates were built. Anyway, we were expecting a quaint, charming little town, but it was pretty run down. I could tell that it was a cute little place "back in the day"! There was a really cool place to go hiking that had some old mine shafts from the late 1800's, so we enjoyed our hike. There were quite a few horses and riders that passed us on the trail and every time they did, Dylan had to call out "hello cowboy!" whether they were male or female. It was really cute. We enjoyed the weather and just being outside with our little family.

And we also got to see a Jesus tree...now how many of you can say that!?!

I miss the innocent comments my kids used to make when they were that age! How cute. I am impressed that you can say you have seen a Jesus tree, because I certainly have not!

What a fun activity! It seems like you guys are always finding cool places to explore near you. I love all the pictures - the kids posing on the benches, Jesse with James in the pack, Dylan taking off down the trail - really cute.

Exploring is fun--love the Jesus tree! BTW, your family isn't so 'little' anymore:)!!! You never responded to me about my Carp questions--email me when you get a chance!

Sounds like it turned out to be a fun trip.

Jessie and James really are brothers. Wow! It will be interesting to see if they still look alike as they get older.

Poppy!
Your kids are getting so big! Little James is so cute! My kids have always been below the 5th percentile except for Simon. He's already like 11.5lbs and only 7 weeks old!
Love that Jesus tree!
