Grand Canyon trip

After surviving the last 2 weeks of school, I had another even to survive...a family camping trip to the Grand Canyon!

As long as I have indoor plumbing & showers, I am a pretty happy camper. (Get it?! Camper?! I'm hilarious, what can I say?) Having Wi-Fi doesn't hurt either.

I know that everyone would like to hear the ins and outs & day by day account of our trip. I mean who doesn't love to hear about every one else's trips? So here we go...

Day 1:

Just kidding! Instead I am going to give it to you this way:

The good:
-family time
-sitting around the camp fire playing Mafia with the kids
-snuggling with Ben to keep warm
-looking at the beautiful landscapes
-lots of fresh air & exercise
-tons of photo ops

The Bad:
-so MUCH dirt
-getting cold at night
-not sleeping well
-roasting during the day
-family members complaining
-not being able to find my laundry soap from home and having to pay insane prices
-insane prices on everything

The Ugly:
All the dirty laundry that I currently have to do...and being totally worn out!

****So I had a whole bunch of pictures I wanted to share. However...they wouldn't load! Total bummer! I may not be the best photographer in the world, but even I got some awesome shots!****

All in all, it sounds like you guys had a great time. Almost inspires me to want to go camping myself. Almost. We are actually going to be on the North Rim on Thursday on our way up to UT, but we'll be staying in a hotel :)

I enjoyed all your trip pictures on FB!
