Sunday, of course, was spent at home and the boys spent some time outside playing "boxing". To insure they had the ultimate experience, they donned bare chests and had "tatoos" (thank goodness for washable markers). However, that fun had to be put to an end after Zach came in complaining his chest hurt (Aparantly, Porter was doing some real boxing).
Monday we got up and took a drive down to the the Quarai ruins in Central New Mexico. The pueblo indians lived here from about 1400-1600 when a Spanish mission was then created to convert and save the indians. It took about 100 years for the Spaniards to use up all the resources and the indians either died of famine or war with the Apaches or left the area. The boys had a great time climbing all over and walking through the mazes of ruins. We had a picnic at Quarai , then went to Abo to see more ruins. Abo is about 20 miles west of Quarai. Abo was the center of the Spanish missions in New Mexico in the 1600's. We walked through all the ruins again and did some more climbing. We headed home to feed the missionaries, then afterwards took a walk down to the Rio Grande river to throw sticks.
Tuesday, we spent the morning hiking along the Petroglyphs. The boys, grandpa, and Rhett climbed all over the rocks to find all the different pettoglyphs. After, we went to Blake's Lotaburger to treat Grandpa to an authentic Green chili cheeseburger. It was sure a great weekend and we sure enjoyed having Grandma and Grandpa Hunt here.
