Happy Independence Day, USA

It's late, and I should be sleeping. But I know you're dying to know about our day. Here it is, in short paragraphs and pictures.

We went to the Santa Fe Pancakes on the Plaza for breakfast. Due to extremely long lines, we did not actually eat pancakes for breakfast, but went to a little restaurant just off the Plaza.

Kara and Anna found jewelry galore that they wanted. They only bought a couple pair of earrings.

We went to the famous cathedral in Santa Fe. Anna enjoyed taking pictures.

We cruised around the various shops. Here we are with our friend Richard, who guided us through our adventure today.

No Fourth of July is complete without a stop at the Christmas store.

In the afternoon, we ate pizza and toured the Georgia O'Keeffe museum. They don't allow cameras.

We found a park, because Alyssa asked us to. Four times. Each hour. Starting at 6:00 am.

The park had these spinning shamrock things that got going really fast just using gravity and most likely a rider's attempt to balance. Nobody fell, but everyone got dizzy.

We drove up the hill and watched the fireworks in town. We were a couple of miles away, but that allowed us to miss the traffic.

Carly tells us we'll be driving for 9 1/2 hours tomorrow. We'll see.

What a full day you had! I sat in a book booth and sweated so much, I thought I'd lost 15 pounds. It turns out I gained 5. I'm sure it didn't help that I sat right next to a bake sale booth and at the end they were selling heaped plates of baked goods for just a dollar. Too good to pass up, no?

I think that you should have developed more of a story line around this 'Richard' character.
