Spring Break With The Kids

Went to Utah for Spring Break with the kids. We had a great time! I took them to Kangaroo Zoo one day and swimming another. We really had a good time. The kids got to spend a day with Grandma, while I spent time with friends running and eating. Which are my two favorite things to do. The kids had a great time with Grandma Reed and Grandma Hughes. They also enjoyed playing with there cousins so much. They wish they could see them more. Unfortunately daddy spent spring break studying his bum bum off. We both can't wait to get this test over with. I also got to spend time with Desmon at the hospital which was a lot of fun and got to enjoy all my nephews. All and all GREAT Spring Break! Love my family so much!!!

Doesn't he make the cutest chubby princess? One of the few negatives of being the youngest. When I was posting this Mason said, "Maddox never wear that again!"

Friday November 13, 2009 RIM2RIM2RIM 46miles and 22hrs of an AWESOME adventure!

Thelma and Louis, I mean Me and Lori, and her brother-in-law Mike decided to conquer the Grand Canyon. We started Fri. morning at 5:45am. We hiked down South Kiabab trail to Phantom Ranch, filled up our water, had a bagel and hot chocolate and started up North Rim. On the way we hit every type of weather you can imagine. There was sleet, sun for 10min. (just long enough for us to get hot and strip off our layers.) Then it rained, hailed and snowed off and on for the next 35 miles.

It was SO much fun though. Lori and I took pictures along the way, mostly to bug Mike (AKA Mr.Grumpy Pants). It was so beautiful! Especially the North Rim. There were these BRIGHT PINK leaves that looked amazing. I have never seen anything like it. There was fog, but just a little....Just enough to make it even more breath taking.

We hiked for about 20 & 1/2 hours, but it took us just under 22 hours to finish, because we stopped at Phantom Ranch for about 30min. coming down, and about an hour before we headed back up. Our goal was 20 hours, so we are pretty happy with our results.

I had such an AMAZING, FUN time! (But...I have been told I could have fun in a cardboard box.) Lori and I are already planning our next adventure. We are just so much alike and love to try new things and challenge ourselves. We keep each other young. I am so glad I took this challenge and conquered it. It was such an AWESOME experience and adventure! Thanks Lori! And thanks Mike for keeping us on schedule. If it wasn't for you Lori and I would probably still be down there taking pictures. And last, but certainly not least, THANKS HONEY for all your support while I was training and taking care of everything while I was gone. You are the most amazing husband and father! I LOVE U MORE THAN I CAN EXPRESS!
