Winter Weekend

I have been getting my photo taken every day for the last 21 days!
Sometimes I am not in the mood,
but sometimes I want to get out and do something fun.
This weekend was a good weather weekend for doing something fun!

On Saturday, we went to the park.
The park has a duck pond, so we watched ducks for awhile.

My roadrunner also followed us to the park.
I guess he wanted his picture taken, too!

It was so nice, that we hung around for awhile.

On Sunday, we visited Casa San Ysidro.
Casa San Ysidro is a historic rancho owned by the Albuquerque Museum.
Visitors can call the museum to sign up for scheduled tours.
Since we weren't on a tour, we just hung out around outside.

Casa San Ysidro was once owned by a private family.
They rebuilt and restored the rancho based on the original foundation.
They lived in the rancho for decades, collecting artifacts, art,
and daily use items from early New Mexico.
The building and the collection was purchased
by the Albuquerque Museum when the couple decided
to move onto their next home and project.

The San Ysidro Mission Church is across the street
from Casa San Ysidro.

The church is still an important part of the community,
both for church services and other events.
Imagine listening to beautiful music in this old church!

The rancho and the church are in a small, rural town on the north end of Albuquerque.
It was a peaceful and quiet place to spend a Sunday.
