Viva Las Vegas

We just returned from a weekend in Vegas. For anyone outside of New Mexico, you’re probably picturing the bright lights and big city in the Nevada desert. Those of us from the Land of Enchantment know there’s a little gem north of Santa Fe that bears the same name as Sin City.

We were invited to celebrate the recent marriage of our friend Krutik and his wife Priya. We decided to head up on Friday night and explore what the locals lovingly refer to as Lil Las Vegas. Allan headed downstairs to hang out with Jesse, Kru and dozens of his closest friends and family in the hotel pantry. You see, the family owns a few hotel properties in town so everyone could make themselves at home.

On Saturday, we went down to Lincoln Park to check out Heritage Days. There were lots of fun activities for the kids. Cyan climbed a rock wall, stamped leather, and did some soap felting. Atticus played carnival games. They both enjoyed watching the dancers from Ohkay Owingeh and making lizard puppets. After that we spent some time in the pool, spa and sauna before a quick nap.

Then it was time for the reception. I’m pretty sure that was the biggest reception I’ve ever been to, something like 300 or 400 guests. We drove out to the historic Montezuma Castle, a beautiful 9000 square foot Queen Anne built in the late 1800s.
