Yesterday we drove up to Santa Fe. The drive is kind of boring (it’s an hour in a car and not much to see except sky and desert) but Annie promised we would have fun after we got there. I think I might have taken a little nap in the car while she was driving, which meant I was READY for fun in Santa Fe!!
There were a lot of people and a lot of booths at the farmers’ market!
I liked this booth because I know Eliza’s family has taken care of chickens so they know all about eggs. And, look, I am so light I am sitting on eggs and not breaking them!
There were so many kinds of artists and they all had such beautiful things they made to sell at the market. There were silk scarves and big paintings and metal sculptures and all kinds of things! Annie bought a pair of little turquoise earrings from this nice lady!
Then we went to the art museum in Santa Fe. It is so cool! Have you ever seen a building like this one? It’s pueblo style and very common in New Mexico. And so are the chile peppers hanging from the ends of the logs.
This was my favorite painting in the whole museum. It’s by a woman named Georgia O’Keeffe, who lived near here.
The museum had a sculpure garden too but I didn’t really like anything there except these pretty wisteria flowers, because they smelled so sweet!
Before we left the museum, we bought some postcards to send back to Wisconsin. I picked them out myself, so I hope you like them, Eliza, Eden, and Emma!
