Grand Canyon Part 2 (Please See Previous Post)

Sorry, this is in two post, for some reason it wouldn't let me do it all in one. But after the movie the sun came out for about an hour and a half so we rushed back to the park and the fog lifted!!! We were able to SEE the Grand Canyon. Then the heavens opened and it poured. So we got back in our car and went home. 15 hours in a car and 1.5 hours to enjoy it. Yeah, it was worth it!!!

The Grand Canyon

So we decided to go the the Grand Canyon for memorial day weekend. We have heard it is beautiful and after making the trip and being there we were afraid that we would have to say... we wouldn't know!!!

It was so funny that we had to take picutres to just have proof!

One tour guide said that in his 20 plus years of giving tours that he had never seen it this foggy.

Here is the family at the Grand Canyon

Notice the date, we were there on the 22nd and this was for the 15th. There was maybe 10 feet for the visual range while we were there.

How's the View?

Well we drove almost 8 hours to get there so we went back into the little town outside of the park and saw the Imax movie and got something to eat. We thought that if we waited around that it would get warmer or the wind would blow the fog out. The lady at the National Geographic Center said that the forecast was for thunderstorms that afternoon and that the next day there was a chance of snow!

Tyson is 3 Months Old!

Ty is such a happy boy! I don't think I have ever seen a baby smile as much as he does. He is even giggling. It is the cutest thing ever. We are so blessed to have him in our family. He is growing like a weed. He is almost too big for his 3-6 month onesies! He sometimes sleeps through the night and during the day when he is awake he is eating. Well it's as the old saying goes, you won't get a shetland pony from two thoroughbreds!

Spending the day with my family at church and then a picnic behind Sandia Peak
This day was great! I was served breakfast in bed to begin the day. Then I recieved presents. I loved them all. But the best part was when Josh said we were going for a picnic. It was a beautiful day and we had never been behind Sandia Peak. It was a nice drive but the company was what made it great. I am so blessed to be a mother. I love my children and husband so much. I love my mother and grandmothers. They have left a legacy that I want to pass on. Happy late Mother's Day to all the moms who read this!
