This year we got to spend Easter with my sister in Taos. We had a great time. Before we left, we used silk ties to dye Easter eggs. The kids’ Granny and Mano came over and we had a great time watching Emmett and Henry blow out the eggs before we dyed them.
We arrived in Taos on Thursday night. We were lucky to be able to stay in an beautiful adobe home at the base of the mountain outside of Arroyo Seco. There is a church there and we heard the people singing all through the night as they made their Easter pilgrimage. On Friday, we had a great time touring the Plaza in downtown Taos, eating at Orlando’s and checking out the village of Arroyo Seco. My sister and I went to our friend Michelle’s store and I tried on lots of clothes and we had a great time visiting.
Saturday we went for a picnic on the Rio Grande. We saw the gorge, which was amazing. The land seems flat and endless, but all of the sudden you are at the edge of an immense canyon that you didn’t even know was there. The boys waded and we soaked up the sunshine. We went back to the house to try a little yak’s meat for dinner and dye more eggs for the boys to find in the morning. We enjoyed a fire on the patio and got to hear the coyotes calling each other.
Easter morning, the boys were up early and we watched them hunt eggs at sunrise. Overall the trip was amazing and I’m excited for my sister who is moving there in May. The pace of Taos is peaceful and the people were so warm. What a beautiful, amazing trip!
