Travelin' Tuesday: Albuquerque, New Mexico

Another birthday trip is down in the books!

We always try to pick a place that is within driving distance or a short flight from Dallas, and this year we landed on Albuquerque, New Mexico to celebrate Chris' 29th birthday.  We stayed at a cute little bed and breakfast in Old Town that served delicious starts to our mornings.

We enjoyed walking around Old Town and spent Friday checking out some local wineries.  Unlike our road trips to San Antonio or Fredericksburg where we would be driving the wine home, we had to be selective of the wines we purchased and flew back with.

We were prepared to bring back two bottles each, thankfully all bottles made it home in one piece!

We had some standout eating experiences including our first time trying tapas and Chris enjoying wild game and truffle fries at High Noon for his birthday.

Mussels, Chicken Skewers, Scallops, & Lamb Sliders

Wild Game Trio, Crab Stuff Rainbow Trout, Truffle Fries and Chris' birthday dessert

Other than eating and drinking, we continued our birthday tradition of massages and then ventured 10,378 feet up into the Sandia Mountains.

Stay tuned next week for a recap of our Sunday drive to Santa Fe and Taos!
