That Canyon Sure Is Grand

Yesterday we drove up to the Grand Canyon. John has never been and we thought with Teresa here it would be the perfect opportunity.

Despite waking up at the crack of dawn (I am NOT a morning person), we had an awesome day.

We drove through Sedona...

...and stopped to take a couple pictures. We wanted to reach the Canyon before dark though, so we didn't get to stay very long. John and I have been up there before and there are a lot of cool shops that I'm sure Teresa would have enjoyed. Oh well, that gives us another reason to go up there again next time!

We also drove through Flagstaff. I love Flagstaff and had I stayed in Arizona for college, I would have gone up there.

I get car sick at the drop of a hat, this picture was taken of John while we were stopped on the side of the road so I could get some air. So if the roadsides look like that, you can imagine how beautiful the rest of the city is.

And finally the Grand Canyon!

I've been there so many times due to out-of-state/country family visits, but it still blows me away every time.

It's Alive!

Hello everyone!
I am very happy to report that I am not dead. And equally as happy to report that this time I have a real excuse for falling behind on my blogging. However, I am not happy to report that the reason for lagging is kidney stones.

People compare the pain of kidney stones to child labor. Now I have no idea if this is true or not, but what I can tell you is that if that's true...I need to seriously reconsider this whole getting married and having children thing.

Let's all just say one big OUCH! For those of you who have had kidney stones you may throw in a few other choice words if you feel the need. I know I sure did.
