He turns 8 today!
He told me he got a bicycle from his dad and that it DIDN'T have training wheels. He was worried about falling.
He would have loved going to this place with me:
White Sands Missile Range Museum
This would have been even more fun:
White Sands National Monument
I didn't come ready to play ( I sure will next time ), so I stopped to take some pictures instead.
After some time in the sun, we headed to the historical town of Old Mesilla. Everywhere you go, you will find references to Billy the Kid. But the most beautiful part of the town is the Basilica of San Albino Roman Catholic Church.
It was the perfect time of day with the sun setting behind the church. Just as we were leaving one of the many gift shops, the bells that date back to the 1870s began chiming that is was six o'clock and then played a beautiful tune. This building is the center of this town's traditional square which is surrounded by restaurants, jewelry stores, art galleries and gift stores. At times you will find the square filled with vendors selling various goods. If you are ever in Southwest New Mexico, head on down to Mesilla. You won't be disappointed.
