Hats off...

To my dad.

We went on a trip with my parents to New Mexico this past weekend. It was a blast. My dad doesn't like to take trips- he's a worker not a player (the exact opposite of me). But he has a CE in NM so my mom and I decided to make a trip out of it.

It was a weekend of firsts for my dad (and all of us really, but no one is as old fashion as he is) we rode in a hot air balloon. He was so scared:

But he did it. He also had sushi for the first time, went to Brazilian BBQ and had fondue for the first time- and here's the kicker: he went to the spa!

I don't think the latter was his favorite among them all; he did do them because we wanted to and I think we went 3 for 5... I still don't think he'd jump on a hot air balloon again if he had his rathers!

All in all, it was a great trip- good food and good people.


  1. That sounds like fun! I have never been in a hot air balloon. Hey speaking of New Mexico, did you know the Deter's are moving there?

  2. Way to go, dad. I thought he would chicken out, for sure!
