Catching up: 4 Kids, 1 Mom, and the Grand Canyon
We had this week off between camps and VBS. It was supposed to be a slow one spent here in town and at home but when some good friends from Kwajalein messaged to say they would be passing through the Grand Canyon on their honeymoon road trip and asked if we could meet them there, I looked at that empty calendar and thought, "Why not?!"
My stupendous friends showed up shortly after we got back to the campsite and J worked his baby magic on Earth and had him calmed down in time to eat some dinner. Where would I be in my life without my friends?
And where would Earth be without dogs? This baby loves dogs!
The rest of the kids loved J and S's van
After dinner, we headed back to the lookout near the camp site and the kids threw every rock they could find into it
while I tried to keep Earth from throwing himself into it!
The next morning we had breakfast, packed up camp, and headed to the official South Rim viewing point
We stopped for some ice cream before saying goodbye to S and J and then we got back on the road to head home
(and then make your kids wear them and take pictures!)
We stopped at Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner and this was my view:
Are you a spontaneous person or do you prefer to plan things out? Have you ever taken an unexpected trip? How did it go? Would you do it again?
