|Cheetos make everything easier!|
Our first night in Farmington was pretty miserable. We were in a tiny hotel room and Eliza does NOT like to sleep when she can see us. After two hours of screaming, both in her crib and in our bed, we finally hid out in the bathroom and voila! ten minutes later she was out like a light. Oy.
Jeremy only had a half-day in Farmington so we made the 3 hour drive to Albuquerque Monday afternoon. Eliza slept almost the whole way, I'm sure she was tuckered out from the night before. Luckily our room here is a suite and has a kitchen where we stuck the crib so Eliza can't see us. Like a charm, she has slept beautifully here (knock on wood.)
Jeremy took Tuesday off, so of course the temperatures were frigid with crazy high wind speeds. We spent the day hiding from the outside, hitting the Albuquerque Aquarium and making our first of I'm sure maaaany trips to Trader Joe's. And, of course, we dined like kings, hitting two of the top-rated New Mexican restaurants in the area. Sadie's took the gold, hands down. Any restaurant that has decided to replace the standard beans'n rice side with beans and diced fried potatoes gets my loyalty no questions asked!

Today, Eliza and I spent the morning at the Museum of Natural History, which had the best dinosaur exhibit I think I've ever seen. Dinosaurs are towards the top of E's favorite things list right now so she LOVED it. I let her take the lead and we went through the very large exhibit four times, spending 2 1/2 hours with her running around growling at every dinosaur she saw. It was definitely worth the $7 entry fee (so cheap!) Now I'm back at the hotel room catching up while Eliza
