And We're Back
We did it! The Grand Canyon and back and we lived to tell about it. I don't have the time to write about it all right now, but I'll break it down over the next few days. For now, I can share that our eyeballs are tired from popping out of our heads from scenery like this...
















You can't even describe it. You just can't. Someone needs to put a sign at the entrance to the park that reads, "You Are Not Prepared!" Because you're not. Pictures do not do it justice.

The trip was also filled with some of the most embarrassing moments of my life... which I'll fill you in on some other time. And we had the unfortunate experience of learning that Zinabu gets carsick on curvy mountain passes. He looked like this for a lot of the trip.


















Isn't that special?

I totally agree. Everyone needs to see it. Can't wait to hear more! Did you get down in it?

Welcome back!

I agree. I was not prepared. I was in complete awe of the Big Guy the whole time. Mark has never been and I am determined to get him there in the next couple years.

Looking forward to upcoming posts. Oh, and poor Zinabu...I completely understand. I am a car sicky too.

I've only seen the Grand Canyon from the air, which of course, is not really seeing it - would love to go someday.

I am quite looking forward to your embarassing stories, so please remember every detail.

Poor Z....and poor everyone else. My sister barfed on a car trip once and I spent hours with my head in a pampers box to try to smell anything but... Nasty.

Car sicky here too. :( Poor Z.

So happy you made it back. I'm sooo looking forward to hearing the stories!

Poor car sicky! I've never seen the Grand Canyon, but man I want to. What I'm not sure about is the 20 hour drive it takes to get there with the 4 small children. Maybe when they're old enough to remember?

Really looking forward to the embarassing stories :)

Absolutely spectacular. The view, not poor, poor Z. Sorry kiddo. I've been there too. I did grow out of it, but not before the Yellowstone trip. Whoops.
