I was planning for a whole month to make my parent’s trip to Santa Fe perfect. It was hard because they planned a trip in between their stay to visit my Aunt in Arizona. But I did clean the guest room top to bottom, found a couple easy hikes to take them on, horseback riding companies to try, and I even researched new restaurants for my dad since he doesn’t like spicy food.

My mom was able to witness the beauty of Santa Fe last year so this time around I was especially excited to show my dad our new town. I was also very interested to see how my dad reacted to the culture. New Mexico is a very different place and in my opinion you really have to learn to love it. It was quite entertaining to see him take it in, but I think he liked it in the end. He even tried some spicy food ... turn red and had to guzzle water, but he tried it!!

After the first full day I realized my plans were flying out the window … we were going to follow Tourist Ricci and Rodney. Instead of horseback riding and hiking we went to a handful of bars and restaurants, walked the historic plaza, hit up Santa Fe Harley, and they were able to stay at my hotel. My mom and I even had a spa day while the boys went to a shooting range. Their visit was great, but it really went way too fast.
|What a great time!!|
Since we didn’t do everything I wanted during their stay I told them they HAVE to come back soon and this time for longer.
I’ve already wrote a few things down for their next visit so I don’t forget!!
