Grand Canyon

Conversation from this morning:
Christopher: I want to go
Me: Daddy will get right back inside, and then we'll go.
Christopher: NO, I want to go. kicking and thrashing
Me: As soon as Daddy gets in the car, we're going to the Grand Canyon. Yay!
Ashlyn: YAY!
Christopher: NO, I want to go HOME.
Me: Christopher, we're going to get a new house, with a yard. Won't that be fun?
Christopher: NO, I want to go HOME. tears.
At the Grand Canyon:
Ashlyn: It's cold. It's too windy. I want to go HOME. I want it to be summer. I want to go home.

And this is where I am done with Allen trying to get a picture of the children and me, with the two wiggle worms who seem to want to careen off the edge.

Despite the whining, we still enjoyed the little bit of time we had there. BEAUTIFUL!

As mentioned in the last post, we got a bit of a late start from California. Plus, we are starting over with house hunting. Not a huge deal, really. Just the slow trip I'd imagined has become a bit faster. I am still enjoying what we are seeing of the beautiful Southwest.

That's one of the best things about moving, getting to see beautiful things along the way. We've traveled across the country several times but have yet to see the Grand Canyon. It's on the top of my list now:)

Great pictures.

It is so hard for kids to understand moving and changing their lives...which was a horror to me when I was young. Once you get a house and get the furniture and "stuff" that they haven't seen for so long...it will help a lot. Just hang in...

The pictures are GREAT, anyway!

Looks beautiful. The Grand Canyon was inaccessible (snowed in) when we drove by. Can't wait to go there some time!

Hope you have peaceful travels!

Who ever named it was right. It is grand.
