After leaving Santa Fe, we drove about an hour South to Albuquerque and had a nice visit with one of Bern's nieces and her family and playing with the kiddos. You might enjoy the sequence of trying to get the kids to sit still for a photograph! Thanks to Scott's Mom for taking it for us.

They have a small parking garage under the restaurant but the spots are really tight. We managed to find a spot that we fit into okay in the garage, but we were lucky to get one.
