Been busy... So sorry there haven't been any updates

The last several months have been very busy for the family and me. We took a big family vacation in December and early January. We visited friends in Honolulu and family in Las Vegas. The children had a blast, seeing friends in Hawaii and spending time with my Dad, his wife, my brother and sister. We took a big road trip while in Vegas and stayed overnight at the Grand Canyon.

The drive took about 5-hours. We drove over the new Mike O'Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge which passes Hoover Dam. Too bad you can't see the Dam or much of the bridge. The scenery was amazing, but I don't think the children paid much attention to the desert and dry plains.

Just as we were arriving at the park entrance, it started snowing. Lucky for us, we had a reprieve from the weather when we reached the Visitor Center and Mather Point at the south rim. The view from the rim was truly fabulous and sublime. I just wish that we could have spend more time hiking and exploring. Anyway, enough with the whining.... It was a great time!!!
