For his birthday, Dave took our family on a road trip to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. Although I have lived in the state for many years, I had never seen the Grand Canyon. He thought that situation needed correction. He also wanted the kiddos to see it.
We encountered snow in Flagstaff and enjoyed playing in it. We played on swings, threw snowballs and laid in the white stuff.
From Flagstaff we headed north. It was cold out, so Benton snuggled in the sling. We walked along the top and talked about the cause of the gorge. The kiddos were impressed. I thought it looked unreal. After walking around for a bit, we ventured home vowing to return again and camp.
