Sandia Peak

Our super fun date night included dinner on top of the Sandia Peak at High Finance Restaurant.  We have never rode the tram before so we figured it was about time. 

They run two trams about 20 minutes apart.  It takes 15 minutes to go the 2.7 miles to the top.  It is the world's longest tramway.  It took 2 years to build and was completed in 1966.  Which, not gonna lie, was a little sketchy.  This thing is fairly old, certainly technology has improved in 46 years.  But, do not mess with success I guess.  :)

There are ski slopes at the top as well as the restaurant we ate at.

Fun with Grandma Nyna

Grandma Nyna was in town this weekend to celebrate Griffin's Birthday Party and to visit.  The kids just love her and Ryan and I always joke that we have the weekend off cause they do not care anything about us anymore.  :) 

She let us go on a couple of date nights.  A blog on one of those to follow soon.  The 5 of us went bowling (per Griffin's request).

Griffin's Birthday Party- Part 1

We celebrated Griffin's birthday yesterday at Hoots (a jump jump place).  It was such a blast.  Grandma Nyna was in town to celebrate too!  Griffin choose everything this year...the theme and the location.  I have to say he did pretty good.  We are so lucky to have such great friends. 


Griffin's Invitations.  Airplane theme this year!
