jon and jasper went out to the rio roca ranch last weekend while i was stuck at work.

yep, totally stuck.

they took a guided tour of the architecture on the site and then headed off to town to check out some more architecture.

jasper was the only kiddo but she did great – kept the adults entertained when she could and kept quiet and observant when she needed to.

‘cuz she is awesome, that’s why.

they wander the historic town of albany (which is, apparently very picturesque) and hit the museums there.

they also get ice cream – which jon sends me a picture of while i am at the shop.

i vicariously enjoyed the ice cream as well…  miles and miles away.
