Here Fishy Fishy...

This summer we did not get to go on our annual Johns Family Camping trip like we have in summers past. We did, however, con my Dad into taking Ryan and I fishing for the day on his boat. We went to Eagle Nest Lake, and it was a great time!

Live Bait!

Isn't he cute?

The honeymoon/gardening/fishing hat has really proven to be a great investment.

We caught one!

Ryan's rainbow trout. The only guy we brought home and grilled up!

I caught that perch but couldn't bring myself to take him off the hook. This is what dads are for, after all.

Thank you Dad for a great day at the lake!!

Green Chile Beer and Lavender Ice Cream. Only in Taos.

My sweet husband planned a love trip to Taos for our third anniversary. We had an excellent time relaxing in the beautiful mountain town.

We tried Green Chile Beer...

And lavender ice cream from Taos Cow.

Went on a long hike in the mountains...

Isn't it beautiful?

We ate dinner one night at the Love Apple. The next time you're in Taos, you MUST eat there. The atmosphere is the definition of delightful, and the food was delicious!

Our sweet hotel.

No trip north would be complete without a stop at the Chocolate Maven in Santa Fe. I had no choice but to photograph the delicious cuisine.

I think I'm still coming off the sugar high from this chocolate ganache cake.

Now THAT'S a banana split!

Thank you to Ryan for arranging such a lovely vacation! Happy 3rd Anniversary!

Arg! Happy Birthday!

Ryan turned 29 a few weeks back and we had another ice cream social like we did two years ago. It turned out to be a lovely evening filled with sweet friends, chips and queso, beer and Blue Bell. What more can a birthday boy ask for?
