For the 4th of the July the boys and I took a day trip to Pueblo, Colorado which is about a 3 hour roundtrip from Alamosa.
Teenage boys are not always keen to walk around old downtown areas just to see what's there, but it is one of my favorite things to do.
Especially when you find an art gallery filled with ceramics, paintings, jewelry and yarn creations.
I especially love the building art we saw everywhere throughout Colorado.
And even had a chance to make some art of my own.
There was a guy doing chalk art on the sidewalk who asked us to draw something so I did.
"Marhaba" is an Arabic word that means "hello" or "welcome".
I figured since it was the 4th of July that there would be more going on. There actually was a street fair with food, games, live music and fireworks planned for later in the evening, but there was an entrance fee. Since I was not keen on driving mountain highways at night, which is when the fireworks would take place, we decided to just head back. Besides, we needed to get ready for the next leg of our journey.
More to come from Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
