If you didn’t catch my last post, go check it out. It is the beginning of our cross-country chronicles.
Day three was awesome! After a refreshing night sleeping in our AirBnB, we headed to breakfast at my grandparent’s home. It is so fun watching our boys interact with their great-grandparents. They are so fortunate to have 6 living great-grandparents whom they have been able to spend time with.
From breakfast we headed into Albuquerque to visit Explora! If you find yourself in ABQ with younger kids, this is a great place to go. The boys loved the water exhibit. We spent the majority of our time on the water patio. They also enjoyed making giant bubbles, building with giant foam blocks, creating circuits, and designing marble runs.
After the museum, we stopped for lunch at the public library downtown. They have a cute and delicious sandwich shop.
We were hoping to stop at A Park Above in Rio Rancho on the way home but we were able to find someone to pick up our Pilot and drive it from NM to FL for us! Instead of the park, we headed to meet the car transporter. Once the transfer was complete, we headed back to my grandparents house to relax a while before dinner. And when I say relax, I mean my grandpa got the boys riled up with a massive pillow fight.
After dinner and goodbyes, we headed back to Casita de Sterling for the night. Day 3 really was perfect.
Have you every visited Albequerque or Rio Rancho? What were your favorite spots?
